"By now, I've spent a lot of time with the Plextor M8Pe and, despite some of the issues I've had, I can't help but to like the drive. This gamer-oriented, PCIe SSD offers good performance, a bold, eye catching design and a massive heatsink to keep it cool during lengthy gaming sessions. Internally, the M8Pe is powered by Marvell's 88SS1093 controller and is available with up to 1TB of Toshiba's 15nm Toggle MLC NAND flash. Combine this with a NVMe 1.2 certified, PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 interface and you have an SSD capable of reading and writing at speeds well beyond that of a single SATA-based drive. In our sequential read and write tests, the M8Pe was able to read at speeds as high as 2,518 MB/s and write at speeds in excess of 1,206 MB/s.”
