SABRENT 1TB Rocket NVMe PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD Maximum Performance Solid State Drive Review

Today we’ll be taking a quick look at the all-new 1TB Rocket NVMe PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD from SABRENT, which advertises insane read and write speeds and supports the new and exciting PCIe 4.0 interface that is now available on X570 series motherboards from AMD. This next-generation M.2 SSD from SABRENT supports the NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 Interface and is PCIe 4.0 Compliant / NVMe 1.3 Compliant. This new SSD also features power management support for APST / ASPM / L1.2, SMART and the TRIM command, ONFi 2.3, ONFi 3.0, ONFi 3.2 and the ONFi 4.0 interface. With Advanced Wear Leveling, Bad Block Management, Error Correction Code, and Over-Provision, this SSD is also very reliable and even supports upgradeable firmware. So what does all of this actually mean? It means ludicrous performance no matter the workload, all in a fantastic package and price!

The SABRENT 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD Extreme Performance Solid State Drive (SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB) delivers all the advantages of flash disk technology with PCIe Gen4.0 x4 interface.

Based on Toshiba’s BiCS4 96L TLC NAND Flash memory, its performance speeds can reach up to 5000 MB/s (read) and 4400 MB/s (write) when using a PCIe Gen4 motherboard. Using a PCIe Gen3 Motherboard Speeds will reach up to 3400 MB/s (read) and 3000 MB/s (write). Power consumption is much lower than traditional hard drives, making it the best embedded solution for new systems.

The SABRENT 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD was designed using PCIe 4.0 which allows for speeds of up to 5000 MB/s (read) and 4400 MB/s (write), significantly faster than PCIe 3.0.

Note: In order to take advantage of these speeds, a PCIe Gen4 motherboard is REQUIRED. Otherwise it will be at pcie gen 3 speed at max of 3500MB/s.
When installing any NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD directly onto a PCIe Gen4 Motherboard a Heatsink is required to dissipate the heat generated by the drives extreme speed levels to avoid thermal throttling and maximize performance.

The SABRENT 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD is backward compatible with PCIe 3.0. Using a Gen 3 PCIe motherboard will enable the user to reach speeds of up to 3400 MB/s (read) and 3000 MB/s (write).

 

I would like to thank SABRENT for providing this review sample! Let us see what they have to say about themselves on their website:
