Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 2TB review



The Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus is the first drive to use the new Phison E18 controller. This is the follow up to the immensely popular Phison E16 controller found in basically every first-gen PCIe 4.0 drive. No, seriously, that’s the controller you’ll find in everything from the Corsair MP600 to the Gigabyte Aorus to the Addlink S90 as well as plenty of Sabrent’s drives. 

Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 2TB specs

That first-gen PCIe 4.0 controller was everywhere, and the reason for that was its throughput. It topped out at just over 5,000MB/s for reads, and 4,400MB/s writes, while the best PCIe 3.0 drives managed reads of 3,500MB/s and writes of just 2,500MB/s.
