Last week we showed you Plextor’s TLC NAND-based 2.5-inch drive they were showing off at CeBIT. Plextor also had a next generation from factor (NGFF) TLC NAND-based drive on display. We have seen a lot of NGFF drives at CES. They are small 42 x 22mm modules with a PCI-Express 2.0 interface. They are designed for use in next generation Ultrabooks. Plextor will be selling these drives in 128GB and 256GB capacities.
Plextor is showing an unnamed line of consumer solid state drives that feature 19nm triple layer cell (TLC) NAND flash memory at CeBIT. They were showing three different capacity drives, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. The drives feature 256MB, 512MB and 768MB of DRAM cache respectively. All three drives are in a 2.5-inch form factor and have a SATA 6GB/s interface. They are powered by the Marvell 88SS9189 processor.
