Factory sequential specs for the 8TB Rocket Q check in at 3,300/2,900 MB/s. The drive is actually significantly faster when serving up data to the host, as demonstrated by our 3,463 MB/s sequential read performance. Sabrent claims the 8TB Rocket Q is their fastest QLC drive to date, and our chart agrees with that claim. It's the best sequential read performance we've achieved with a consumer QLC SSD.

As always, we are looking for great read performance more than anything else, because 80% of the time a drive is serving up data. This is the first time we've seen a QLC SSD deliver a total read score of over 6K. Nice.
It's not often we can exceed factory max read IOPS considering we test with the drive 50% filled. This time we do. Excellent.
