Plextor M6e PCI-Express SSD on a Hackintosh

Recommended Posts


Plextor 128GB PX-AG128M6e M6e PCIe X4 SSD Solid State Drive (AHCI M.2 2280)


  • Lightning-fast boot-up times, application launches, and system responsiveness for an unbeatable feeling of speed
  • Maximum reliability with industry's highest 5 year warranty. Take the M6e to the limits with Plextor's best quality components and extensive failure testing
  • Sequential Read Speed: 770 MB/s - Sequential Write Speed: 335 MB/S - Random Read Speed: 96,000 IOPS - Random Write Speed: 83,000 IOPS

Good news is that it's bootable for a Mac or Hackintosh without any additional drivers.
Trim is also working for me. Physical block sizes is 512
Make sure you have a PCIe x4 slot free to get full speed advantage.

With convenient Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) support, Plextor M6e PCIe owners get to experience the speed of a high-performance SSD without the need to load additional drivers. Compatibility with legacy BIOS allows the M6e to be used with existing gaming rigs for flexibility. Alternatively selecting the UEFI boot mode for motherboards with UEFI provides incredibly fast start-up times.


If thats not fast enough you can get yourself a 256GB or 512GB which will have a write speed of 580 MB/s respectively 625 MB/s. Or make a RAID with two or more.

Legacy boot will be 20 seconds and UEFI boot 10 seconds.


Max read speed for me was 787MB/s





Shows up as a Apple SSD Controller




And PCIe for video did not dropped down to x8

But Link width for the Plextore PCIe card is x2 and not x4?
