Final Thoughts

One SSD to rule them all? If there is such a thing, Sabrent's 8TB behemoth is the closest we've seen to it. If NVMe capacity is the king of the consumer space, and there is a good argument to be made for that, then Sabrent is currently occupying the SSD throne. Never have we seen an NV memory retailer so quickly come to the forefront of the industry. Just look at our test pool, and you will notice SIX Sabrent SSDs vying for supremacy.

That is unprecedented and a testament to where Sabrent ranks as a leader in consumer NVMe SSDs. Almost everyone else is fiddling around with tiny 2TB NVMe SSDs, and then there is Sabrent, who is focused on bringing 4TB plus SSDs to gamers, content creators, and the enterprise space. Astounding. Yes, capacity is king.


In terms of overall user experience, heavy and normal workloads, Sabrent's Rocket Q delivers as good as it gets for a QLC SSD.

Let's do a quick review of the highlights the Rocket 8TB provided during its testing session. Out of the gate, we witnessed better than advertised read performance. Next up Anvil's, where we witnessed our first 6K plus read score and the world's highest random read IOPS for a 4-bit consumer SSD. Stunning. Following that, we were treated to a couple of lab records for AS SSD.

But wait, there's more. The 8TB Rocket Q set a new lab record for read transfers by a 2TB plus capacity consumer NVMe SSD. Finally, we witnessed the prowess of Sabrent's latest and greatest as it delivered by far the best user experience for a QLC SSD when running typical consumer workloads.

Unprecedented innovation and Tier-1 performance have earned Sabrent's 8TB Rocket Q NVMe SSD a hearty TweakTown recommendation and our highest award.
