Title: Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus-G SSD Review: The Ultimate DirectStorage Gaming Drive for Tomorrow 

Sabrent has launched the world's first DirectStorage-optimized SSD, the Rocket 4 Plus-G, designed specifically for gamers who demand lightning-fast speed and maximum performance. With DirectStorage technology, the Rocket 4 Plus-G delivers unprecedented speeds, making it the ultimate gaming drive being future proof?. We'll test this SSD with AMD's Ryzen 7950X3D and Intel's Core i9 13900K.

This powerful SSD comes with a range of advanced features, including PCIe 4.0 technology, 3D NAND flash memory, and a Phison E18 controller. It is capable of achieving sequential read and write speeds of up to 7,200 MB/s and 6,850 MB/s, respectively, making it one of the fastest SSDs on the market today. In addition to its exceptional speed, the Rocket 4 Plus-G also offers impressive durability and endurance. It is rated for up to 1,400 TBW (Terabytes Written) for the 2 TB model, ensuring long-lasting performance and reliability for even the most demanding gaming needs. The Rocket 4 Plus-G is available in a variety of sizes, including 1GB, 2 TB, and 4 TB, and is priced at €148.99, €269.99, and €524.99, respectively. With its technology and impressive performance, will the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus-G be the ultimate DirectStorage gaming drive for tomorrow?  

The NAND flash chips used are their own Micron's latest 176-layer 3D based on TLC technology. The new flash chips have marginally increased overall performance and much faster write rates. Keep in mind that this is a TLC-written NVMe SSD outfitted with a controller that is a Phison E18 controller capable of some reaping benefits inside your storage array. PCIe Gen 4.0 for those that want top-notch high-performance at a fair price, this PCIe Gen 4 x4 M2 unit might be what you are after. The product is available in multiple volumes and sizes. There's the 4TB, 1TB versions yet we test, and a 1 TB model. The company is pleading numbers that run into the 7200 MB/s, Write Speeds, and up to 6850 MB/s for the fastest 2 TB and 4TB M2 SSD. They a offer proper 5 years warranty. The TBW (TeraBytes Written—the total amount of data that a company is willing to guarantee can be written to the drive) rated 1400 TBW for the 2 TB model and 700 TBW for the 1 TB model and 2800 TB for the 4 TB model. The IOPS values are staggering as well, roughly 1 Million each way.

The specs are outstanding but will this unit deliver what it claims? SSD is based on the trendy 8-channel Phison's PS5018-E18 controller and, of course, has been fitted with TLC written NAND. The performance will vary slightly depending on volume size; the more significant, the faster, though. The SSD is a Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe 1.4) M.2 2280 form factor SSD. The performance numbers of a proper SATA3 SSD offers these days are simply excellent, but with the more niche NVMe SSDs you can multiply performance 14x, and that offers serious numbers. The unit follows a smaller M.2 2280 form factor (8cm), so it will fit on most ATX motherboards capable of M.2 just fine. Anyway, wanna see how fast it really is? Will this be a proper Samsung 980 PRO competitor (heck yes). The Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus-G SSD now comes with a five-year warranty, giving gamers even more peace of mind and confidence in their purchase.Next page and onwards into the review then.
