Plextor M6e Benchmark Results: CrystalDiskMark
There is virtually no difference in performance between "clean" and "dirty" M6e SSDs. The M6e benefits from Plextor True Speed technology that prevents performance degradation when the drive enters dirty status.
The M6e supports both UEFI and legacy BIOS booting, providing flexibility and compatibility with a wide range of systems. Full UEFI support allows the system to initiate all storage devices simultaneously, improving efficiency and cutting boot times by half.
Designed for PCI Express
Designed for PCI Express The M6e uses the ultra-modern PCI Express connection to achieve new performance records. It provides higher performance and bandwidth than conventional SATA connections.
Advanced next-generation form factors supported, the M6e can help gamers easily build extreme-performance gaming computers. Utilizing a PCI Express Gen 2 x 2, the M6e bypasses the SATA speed bottleneck to improve the gaming experience.
Support AHCI Mode
Driver-free AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) compatibility eliminates the need for additional drivers.
Plextor Quality and Reliability
Plextor's Zero-Failure Zero-Error standard during rigorous testing using the world's most advanced SSD testing facilities - FLEXSTAR testing chamber. The M6e provides extreme reliability with a MTBF calculated at 2.4 million hours after reaching.
48hr Sustained Read and Write Test
Two days continuous 4K file read / write test, zero error pass requirement.
4000 Times Idle Test–Sleep and Hibernation Test
After 24 hrs read & write SSD enters sleep (S3) mode and is woken after 5 minutes, repeated for hibernation (S4) mode, zero error pass requirement.
250 Times Power Cycle–Cold and Warm Boot Tests
Continuous cold boot and warm boot cycles 250 times, zero error pass requirement.
Full Five-year Warranty
The M6e is backed by a full five-year Plextor warranty with the reassurance of a network of repair centers and international technical support. An extensive technical support system will provide support throughout the drive's long life and make the M6e a performance upgrade that you can have total confidence in.
