Plextor is set to announce their first NVMe SSD at CES 2016, and the new M8Pe uses 4 lanes of PCIe 3.0 to provide up to 270,000 IOPS read and 150,000 IOPS write performance (4K random). Throughput numbers were not revealed.

The drive is in the M.2 form factor though the image indicates it will include a PCIe adapter and heat sink.
"The new drives also feature Plextor’s specialty features, such as PlexTurbo RAM caching, compression technology for maximizing storage capacity, and PlexVault, which allows you to hide private data from others on a shared computer."
No details have been announced yet on capacity, release date, or (of course) pricing. We'll have to wait until CES to find out more.
