At Sabrent, we have been working very hard to bring this new product to market while working extremely closely with Phison to develop our new line of Gen 5 SSDs to push the boundaries to 14,000 MB/s and beyond.
The Sabrent Rocket 5 Gen 5 SSD is capable of reaching sequential read speeds of over 14,000 MB/s and sequential write speeds of over 12,000 MB/s, surpassing the existing PCIe 5.0 SSDs in the market. The Rocket 5 Gen 5 SSD, which is developed in collaboration with Phison has exceeded our expectations and performance limits to bring the fastest Gen 5 SSD to the market.
Undoubtedly, many have seen the Phison Tech Demo sample results that Phison sent out. We aim to improve that and increase the performance as much as possible. At this stage, we have passed 14,000 MB/s Reads and 12,000 MB/s Writes.
Below, we’d like to show a sample of what we can do with the up-and-coming Sabrent Rocket 5 that we present today.
The Rocket 5 Gen 5 SSD’s performance in our CrystalDiskMark tests is remarkable. Achieving over 14,000 MB/s in sequential read and over 12,000 MB/s in sequential write speeds is a significant accomplishment. These results demonstrate the potential of the Rocket 5 Gen 5 SSD and set a new benchmark in the SSD market. Another critical metric is Random 4K Q1T1 results, where we hit 107 MB/s Read and 479 MB/s Writes, impressive indeed.
Not only are CrystalDiskMark results impressive, but we see this across the board with other benchmarks, such as 3DMark Storage Test, PCMark Storage Tests, Anvil, ATTO, and others.
I have our sample artwork for our retail packaging for you below.
A big concern with users running Gen 5 SSDs is that they run very hot and often throttle down or even crash under heavy loads. Our tests show that the new Rocket 5 runs cooler than earlier Gen 5 SSDs. Most motherboards that can run Gen 5 SSDs with built-in cooling solutions can handle these new drives just fine. You don’t need to install giant SSD coolers that we have seen used by others. If one wishes, we will have an SSD heat sink available for systems that do not have a built-in heat sink or for use on expansion cards running in a PCIe slot.
We do recommend using the Rocket 5 with a heat sink, be it the motherboard’s built-in heat sink or our own Gen 5 Heat Sink. This new heat sink does not make a high-pitched whine and is well-suited for these new SSDs.
The base specifications for our new Rocket 5 SSDs are shown below. Please note that the 4TB version will follow later.
The new Sabrent Rocket 5 will be available very soon.
Stay tuned to Sabrent for news on our other top-performing products as we approach the release. Our test lab is very busy with many new groundbreaking products we will release soon.
