Sabrent has just given the world a cheeky look at its upcoming Apex X16 Destroyer, a new add-in card that can handle not just the 8 x M.2 NVMe SSDs on the front because there's another 8 x M.2 NVMe SSDs on the back for 16 in total.
Sabrent used its new Apex X16 Destroyer with 16 of its own 8TB Rocket 4 Plus SSDs for 128TB in total, as you can see in the photo of it above, there are 8 x 8TB Rocket 4 Plus SSDs on the front, while there are another 8 x 8TB Rocket 4 Plus SSD slots on the back that will allow for an eye-watering 128TB of Gen4 SSDs.
All of this can be had on a tight single-slot design, meaning if you've got both the PCIe slots and, most of all -- the PCIe lanes to handle it -- you could have a few of these in your PC for some truly mind-boggling amounts of Gen4 SSD storage on Sabrent Apex X16 Destroyer cards. Perfect for AMD's just-launched Ryzen Threadripper 7000 and Threadripper PRO 7000 series CPUs, where you've got pleeeeenty of PCIe lanes to handle a handful of Sabrent's new Apex X16 Destroyer cards, along with a ridiculous amount of their 8TB Rocket 4 Plus SSDs.

If you had 4 of these with 128TB of Gen4 SSD per card, you're looking at 512TB of Gen4 SSD storage in just 4 slots of your PC, let alone what you can install into your motherboard. You could have an E-ATX motherboard that has more PCIe slots, with ASRock's recently teased WRX90 WS EVO motherboard rocking 7 x PCIe x16 slots, meaning you could have 7 x Sabrent Apex X16 Destroyer cards... I actually kinda laughed as I wrote this, scoffed in humor maybe... trying to work out the 7 x 128TB in my head.
7 x 128TB (16 x 8TB SSDs per card) = 896TB of Gen4 SSD storage. Now, you could use the M.2 slots on the motherboard itself, as well as super-fast SlimSAS and MCIO server-grade storage on the ASRock WRX90 WS EVO motherboard. So, you could have over 1 petabyte of super-fast SSD storage inside of your PC. That's amazing.
