Sabrent mustâ€™ve read some of my articles and discovered my love of the color copper. The heat-spreader and the metal carrying case for the brand spanking new Rocket 4 Plus PCIe 4 NMVe SSD feature the color in copious amounts. I like it. Even if copper leaves you flat, the driveâ€™s stellar performance will grab your attentionâ€”it bested the Samsung 980 Pro in many tests.
Specs and pricing
The NVMe SSDs we review all use the M.2 connector, and are 22 mm wide by 80 mm long (2280). The Rocket 4 Plus is an x4 PCIe 4.0 device featuring a Phison PS5018-E18 controller and 96-layer, Micron TLC NAND. Sabrent promises not to change to slower components, as has happened with a couple of SSD vendors recently. Thereâ€™s also 2MB of DRAM cache. NAND is treated as SLC for secondary caching to the tune of 25 percent.Â
