Sabrent is a company that has recently been gaining traction among PC gaming enthusiasts, especially since the release of its Rocket Q M.2 SSD lineup, headlined by a whopping 8TB of storage on NVMe Gen3. It appears that the brand is still riding high on that wave, having just announced a new 4TB capacity for its NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD lineup.
The high capacity Sabrent PCIe 4.0 SSD was reportedly spotted on Amazon. While 4TB NVMe PCIe SSDs are not technically groundbreaking, Sabrent’s new storage offering, the Sabrent Rocket Q4 NVME 4.0, is currently the only PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD that exists with such a capacity. Prior to its revelation, the highest capacity PCIe 4.0 SSD was half the size at 2TB.
On a side note, the 4TB Sabrent Rocket Q4 uses QLC NAND Flash memory technology with 4-bits per cell, as opposed to the TLC NAND Flash memory used with the smaller capacity SKUs.
In terms of performance, the 4TB Rocket Q4 SSD has sequential read and write speeds of 4900MB/s and 3900MB/s respectively, which is par for the course for a solid-state solution of its calibre. Of course, owning an SSD that is high capacity and lightning fast means that it isn’t cheap; Amazon is selling it for US$750 (~RM3193), which isn’t too bad for a number of reasons. Chief among which being that it is actually parallel to the current price per gigabyte.
Sadly, Sabrent doesn’t have an official presence in Malaysia, but you can technically purchase their NVMe SSDs via online retailers like Lazada, although we can’t vouch for the prices. Also, this goes without saying, you’ll need a motherboard that with PCIe 4.0 support if you want to reap the full benefits of those speeds.
