We test all SSDs as our system (OS) disk filled 50% with data. This allows us to closely replicate a typical user scenario and provides more accurate performance results. Factory sequential specs for the 4TB Rocket NVMe check in at 3,450 MB/s seq read and 3,000 MB/s seq write. We can exceed both even in our more demanding user state.
Anvil's Storage Utilities
When evaluating Anvil's results, we focus on overall read scoring. We are typically looking for a total read score of over 6,000 points. The Rocket NVMe 4TB gives us what we are looking for, even outperforming Samsung's EVO Plus.
Max IOPS is meaningless to a consumer user, but we show it anyway to see if we can hit factory specs in our more demanding user state. Sabrent specs the Rocket NVMe 4TB max random performance at 580K read and 650K write.
Our max random write is an astounding 804K, which greatly exceeds factory specs. Our max random read comes in a bit below factory specs, which is exactly what we expect to see considering our user state.
