Plextor to unveil the next generation PCIe NVMe SSD

Plextor is set to announce the availability of PCIe NVMe SSD in August.

NVM Express (NVMe) or Non-Volatile Memory Express is a standardized high performance host controller interface for PCIe SSDs that will ultimately deliver plug-and-play functionality for PCIe-connected SSDs on all platform.

Also, NVMe will not experience delay as it will directly communicate with the CPU, thus, skipping all the unnecessary communication that causes delay.

Low latency isn't the only advantage you'll get from NVMe, as it also offers a much higher IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second). NVMe is capable of supporting up to 64K I/O queues, with each I/O queue supporting up to 64K commands, taking the full advantage of NAND Flash's parallel read and write.

With Intel 9 / 100 series chipset now supports NVMe and Operating System such as Windows 8.1 Windows Server 2012 R2 or later that comes with built-in NVMe driver, SSD manufacturers are seen releasing consumer grade NVMe SSD products starting from last year as well as during Computex Taipei back in the month of June.
