Description

Although there’s now a newer model of the Rocket available – which offers PCI Express 4.0 support – the original Sabrent Rocket remains a more cost-effective option for users who don’t own a 3rd-gen Ryzen or Threadripper system. As of late 2019/early 2020, the Gen 3 Rocket was the only M.2 SSD on the consumer market available in a large 4TB variety.  

Overview: Memory Type, Controller, and Cache

The Sabrent Rocket uses Toshiba BiCS 3D (layered) triple-level cell (TLC) NAND memory modules in combination with a Phison E12 controller, which is a comprehensively tried and tested SSD formula.  In order to compete with the industry-leading M.2 SSDs, the Rocket also utilizes a DDR4 DRAM buffer and, like all SSDs based on TLC memory, the drive uses an SLC-mode cache to reach its advertised maximum transfer rates.

In the high-end PCIe 3.0 M.2 segment, Samsung’s 970 EVO Plus is the market leader – and not without good reason. Therefore, it’s always an SSD that needs to be challenged in order to compete for a top spot. The EVO Plus is an improvement of the already fast 970 EVO, which was also a market leader for quite some time. 

Thanks to its speedy TLC NAND and Phison E12 controller combo, the Sabrent Rocket is not that far behind. It also comes with the advantage of a somewhat lower price tag, and the fact that it’s available in a 4TB capacity – an entirely unique selling point in this segment for now.  Interestingly, the 4TB model is a bit faster in some areas compared to the smaller capacities, but not in all. 

Power Consumption (Laptop Suitability)

We have no information on the Sabrent Rocket’s exact power consumption, other than that it has “Power Management Support for APST / ASPM / L1.2” (according to the manufacturer). What makes the Rocket a particularly interesting alternative for laptop users is the aforementioned 4TB model, which comes in the standard 2280 length. At the time of writing, that makes it the only 4TB option in any laptop with a single M.2 slot.  

Warranty and Endurance Rating 

Like most high-end SSDs, you get a 5-year limited warranty with the Sabrent Rocket. The endurance ratings in TBW (terabytes written) are not published on Sabrent’s website, but according to a representative they are as follows:

  • 256GB; 380 TBW
  • 512GB: 800 TBW
  • 1TB: 1,665 TBW
  • 2TB: 3,115 TBW
  • 4TB: 7,300 TBW
