We are mere days away from AMD's new X570 platform launching alongside the next-gen Ryzen 3000 series CPUs which are based on the new Zen 2 CPU architecture, so PCIe 4.0-enabled SSDs that pump up to 5GB/sec are now a reality. Sabrent is one of the first to market with its new Rocket NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD.
Sabrent's new Rocket NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD is on Amazon right now and comes in two sizes: 1TB and 2TB which will cost you $230 and $430, respectively. It is powered by the Phison PS5016-E16 SSD controller that has power management support for APST/ASPM/L1, as well as SMART and TRIM commands, advanced wear leveling, bad block management, error correction code, and over-provision.
Sabrent is using Toshiba's BiCS4 96L TLC (triple-level cell) NAND flash memory that provides the Rocket NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD to truly act like a rocket with transfer speeds of up to 5GB/sec reads and 4.4GB/sec writes. Yeah, considering normal 2.5-inch SSDs max out at around 500MB/sec having 10x the speed on tap thanks to PCIe 4.0 is hugely impressive.
Buy the new Sabrent Rocket NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD in both 1TB and 2TB from Amazon now.
