Sequential numbers are exactly in-line with what we've come to expect from E16-based SSDs. Randoms are right in there as well. In fact, the Sabrent Rocket 4.0 manages to edge out the other E16 SSDs we've tested to capture a new lab record for 4K Q1T1 random writes on an AMD platform.
Anvil's Storage Utilities
As we've explained many times, Anvil's is the best overall synthetic performance test there is. And we further break it down to total read score as what we consider the most important metric of all. This is because overall read performance is the hardest to come by. Look no further than Intel's $1,200 Optane 905P for proof of this.
Sabrent's Rocket 4.0 delivers a total read score that is again perfectly in-line with the other E16 based SSDs we've reviewed to this point. It trounces the current Gen3 flash-based competition. By this point, we can say without a doubt that Sabrent's Gen4 offering does indeed perform equally with other brands, even though it typically costs less.
Now, we will issue a caveat to our statement that performance will be equal. Equal performance if Sabrent doesn't change their BOM sometime in the future, but that is true for all vendors.
We don't place much importance on max IOPS. We are just showing what the drive can deliver while running in our test-state. That said, the numbers are quite impressive.
