In our earlier test, we got to know that the PX-128M2P SSD from Plextor is quite impressive owing to its decent read/write capability and strong rubbish cleaning ability keeping the hard drive’s speed in spite of long-term use. Currently Plextor has unleashed its new-generation SSDââM3 series, with capacities ranging from 128GB to 512GB. And the NAND is changed to 24nm MLC NAND with promoted speed in reads/writes.
Compared with M2P series, M3 series SSDs add the capacity of 512GB. However, as the new SSDs are changed to feature 24nm MLC NAND, which has certain influence towards performance. The write speed of M2P with capacities of 128/256GB is 320/440 MB/s, while M3 series only have the write speed of 210/360 MB/s under the same capacities. In addition, though 512GB SSD feature strong sequential read/write speed, its IOPS speed is much lower while compared with 256GB, which must has an effect upon 4K performance. We have just got the 512GB version of M3 series SSD, let’s see what its performance is.
