Extreme eSports level performances

A complete upgrade for your professional e-sports experience, the M8Pe series supports the high-speed interface of the new generation PCIe Gen3 x4. Powered by the latest NVMe protocol, the M8Pe boasts of extreme performances up to 2500/1400 MB/s sequential read/write speeds, and up to 270000/150000 IOPS random read/write performance. Even with games that require heavy read/write operations and intense graphic processing, it delivers the smoothest gaming experience with its powerful infrastructure optimized for eSports.

eSports level quality design – high performance cooling fins with gamers in mind

Staying calm and cool during intense video games is highly important. The M8Pe’s professional cooling fins are impressively effective with its high-efficiency internal airflow design, dispelling the worry of high temperatures that can compromise system performance, therefore extending the service life of the SSD.


Plextor’s Superior Quality

All Plextor SSDs pass rigorous inspections with the most advanced SSD testing equipment in the world; not a single error or fault is allowed (Zero Error) in order to provide users with the highest level of quality and stability. Through professional simulation of actual read/write conditions, the M8Pe series, like all Plextor SSDs, offers MTBF of up to 2.4 million hours, significantly improving the reliability in long-term use and ensuring the security of valuable data.

Exclusive Technologies


TrueSpeed technology keeps long-term SSD performance at like-new speeds after periods of use and when the SSD is nearly full.


TrueProtect technology is a multi-layered error checking mechanism automatically executed by firmware. By employing the error-correcting capability of ECC, it can correct up to 128 bits of random errors; in conjunction with Plexor-exclusive real-time debugging mechanism and the self-testing capability of Flash, TrueProtect keeps data access error-free.
