TITLE: Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme SSD Review (256GB) - 100,000 IOPS and
Excellent Performance



INFO: It seems that our relationship with Plextor has had a shot of
Adrenaline since
f-tlc-and-power-protection-ssds-at-ces-las-vegas-2013/> our meet at CES Las
Vegas 2013 and 'first up' analysis of the new Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme SSD is
the result. We did have a bit of a heads up when Plextor asked us to
review the M5 Pro in this meeting, but definitely never expected the M5 Pro
to arrive at our office, even before us, and not two weeks before this
Xtreme we just finished testing! The Pro and the Extreme should be virtually
identical, considering both contain the same controller, the same cache,
same firmware and even 19nm NAND flash memory. The difference is that the
Xtreme contains 16 modules of NAND flash memory vice the 8 of our M5 Pro
review, the Xtreme also promising IOPS of 100,ooo. But wait.. didn't we get
that from the M5 Pro as well?
