Our write transfer is 100GB in size and composed of more than 62,000 files. Not an easy test to be sure. The Rocket Q delivers a jaw-dropping result of 755 MB/s. Totally unexpected and a testament to the effectiveness of Phison's QLC firmware. So far, we've seen the Rocket Q delivering the goods better than many current TLC based SSDs.
Reading back data is something the Rocket Q does very well. The only drive doing it faster is a Gen4 SSD. The Rocket Q is serving up data at nearly twice the rate of Intel's 660P.

This time the Rocket Q takes a back seat to the rest of the SSDs in our test pool. The time delivered is still plenty fast, but we would like to see it come in a bit lower. We do not believe this is due to the drive's QLC flash array, but rather a firmware related issue that will be improved upon in the near future.
