Plextor, a leading developer and supplier of high-end solid-state drives for personal computers and workstations, has demonstrated what may be among the world’s highest-performing SSDs in next-generation form-factor (NGFF) that Intel Corp. proposes for ultrabooks as well as ultra-thin laptops. The drives aimed at small PCs are designed to offer extreme performance.

Plextor’s NGFF SSDs will offer 128GB and 256GB capacities and will be based on Marvell 88SS9183 controller and Plextor’s own firmware. The new NGFF SSDs will offer up to 700MB/s sequential read speed and up to 500MB/s sequential write speed amid 90000/100000 random read/write IOPS [input/output operations per second]. The drives will use PCI Express x2 interface.

The SSD specialist is on-track to release the new NGFF SSDs by the time Intel’s partners start to sell ultrabooks powered by Core i-series 4000-family “Haswell” microprocessors, according to Hardware.info web-site.

With such extreme levels of performance, the new NGFF SSDs from Plextor will not only deliver new levels of speed for solid-state drives in general, but will clearly redefine performance of ultra-thin PCs and will spur demand for even more advanced SSDs for desktops.

create another one with 1GB/second reading and writing would be an awesome competition. JUST NEED TO BE BOOT-ABLE THOUGH.
