Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus SSD With PS5 Heatsink Review – They Switched to B47R Memory Without Telling a Soul!

PCMARK 10 FULL SYSTEM STORAGE BENCHMARK

PCMark 10 Storage Benchmarks produce an overall score as a measure of drive performance. Comparing devices is as simple as comparing scores. The tests also measure and report the bandwidth and average access time performance for the drive. Each test uses traces recorded while performing real-world tasks such as booting Windows 10, starting applications such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, working with applications such as Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint, and copying several large files and many small files.

PCMark 10 results placed the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus B47R Fortis SSD right up there with the best.

PCMARK 10 QUICK SYSTEM STORAGE BENCHMARK

The Quick System Drive Benchmark is a subset of the Full test and is more representative of typical daily usage to show what would be expected regarding hybrid SSD performance on a day-to-day basis.

The Rocket 4 Plus dropped a bit in the Quick test but still put up respectable results.

TRUE DATA TESTING

For our True Data Testing, we simply loaded 15GB video, music, photo and OS files onto the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus B47R Gen 4 NVMe SSD and copied the data to a new folder on that same disk.

PASSMARK PERFORMANCE TEST

We thought we might add a few extras in our report today, PassMark Performance Test DiskMark component being a nice addition.  This software tests sequential reads and writes, along with IOPS and compares the result with millions of other SSDs worldwide.  We might suggest being in the 99th percentile of all SSDs tested was a nice result.

FINAL FANTASY XIV: ENDWALKER BENCHMARK

The Final Fantasy Benchmark is a new tool in our arsenal and geared specifically to the gamer.  The software is installed directly on the SSD and the SSD tested, providing and end result of FPS and scene transition times.

Can’t go wrong with the 2nd best game total loading time yet!

  1. Too expensive, too little storage capacity, too slow copying for small files, no PCIe V.5, I hate the SSD manufacturers wholeheartedly for the unnecessary delay of progress. Guys I finally want to take plenty of 100MP photos and 8K120fps videos and be able to save them without having to buy dozens of USB 4 hubs and stack them so that I have enough SSD storage available as a huge heater!

    • Thanks for your reply and I, as well, hope to be reviewing same in PCIe 5.0 soon enough. It is a process and i think that by next year at this time we will be comfortably enjoying 12GB/s and higher. Thank you for taking the time to comment; it is great to hear from readers so far away and you have followed us for some time if I am correct. Danke!

      • The technology of digital cameras, etc. will continue to evolve in the future and more and more data will be generated. For decades, there has been a lack of a solution to satisfy this problem sufficiently and to provide storage space for fast and cheap backup of data. I can only hope that the manufacturers will offer an alternative in the near future, such as a one-time recordable SSD similar to a CD-R. This should offer at least 16TB of storage space at a non-binding price of no more than 32, – € per TB. I will continue to watch the market for the next 3-5 years and if there is still nothing sufficient, then I will have to make my own solution for myself…

  2. I think it’s a great price when comparing to similar products. Just bought the FireCuda 530 4TB for almost 100€ more. Plus there’s an 8TB option from Sabrent, right? Guess endurance is better with Seagate, although I couldn’t find any details on this on their homepage.

    • The Firecuda 530 is a dynamite SSD and any 4TB version is pure gold. I don’t concern myself much with endurance as we have been in the game here since 2007 and I haven’t found any reason to bother myself; these are worlds ahead of hard drives and we might see a fluke once in a blue moon. Another long time poster and thank you.

    • As far as I know, Sabrent’s 8TB SSDs are all QLC-based.

  3. All these reviews keep mentioning the Plextor M10P. But has anyone anywhere in the world actually seen one of these for sale? If I’ll never be able to buy it why should I care?

  4. I was first expecting a shocker, that things went bad!
    Hahaha.

  5. Thanks for the test, as always those years.

    Yes, there is progress being made in the last 2 years of pcie 4.0 ssd, but this ssd is a somewhat dazzler; they catched up switching the nand, but the small file-test shows the ssd is a dazzler in real world applications. Even with large 4 TB, which should made it write/read pseudo-slc-cache only.
    TBW is standard. Sequential 64k is only good in benchmarks, the IOPS only reached in benchmarks, real world it is halfed.

    Les Tokar, if you finally would start – please! – to switch your ssd tests from 80 % nonsical-the-same-programm-benchmarks, which the developers trim the ssd (to shine in synthetical test), we all could see what the ssds are really about.
    You could start to switch one benchmark at a time 😉

    I find it a waste, that you have such nice writing skills, humor, test methodology, vitamin B (connections), knowledge, but then waste the test product for 80 % the same becnhmark-runs, just to fill pages.

    • Thank you for taking the time to respond and the comps. I hear what you are saying with respect to the type of tests completed but we do seem to get the best return with respect to the way we have our reports put together. Who knows…maybe we will include something a bit different down the road. Thanks again.

  6. Nice stuff, thanks! Can Phison NVMe Flash ID utility report the different NAND type? Have you tried?

    • I can confirm that phison_nvme_flash_id2 detects B47R properly, so you can make it sure without removing any label.
