Sabrent Releases 8TB Rocket NVMe: A Powerful Upgrade for Gamers

Sabrent has unveiled its latest product, the PS5-compatible 8TB Rocket NVMe. This SSD drive boasts an impressive storage capacity that will leave users with plenty of room for their gaming needs. Let's dive into the specifications before discussing the price.

The Sabrent 8TB Rocket 4 PLUS NVMe 4.0 Gen4 PCIe M.2 Internal SSD utilizes PCIe Gen4.0 x4 interface, providing all the advantages of flash disk technology. With its TLC NAND Flash memory, this drive can achieve read speeds of up to 7100MB/s and write speeds of up to 6600MB/s when used with a PCIe Gen4 motherboard. For users with a PCIe Gen3 motherboard, speeds can still reach a respectable 3400MB/s for read and 3000MB/s for write operations.

This SSD is backward compatible with PCIe 3.0, meaning it can also be used with Gen 3 PCIe motherboards to achieve speeds of up to 3400MB/s (read) and 3000MB/s (write).

In addition to its impressive performance, the Sabrent 8TB Rocket NVMe comes with a specially designed heatsink for the PS5 console. The built-in heatsink ensures efficient cooling to maintain optimal performance during intense gaming sessions. Featuring a high-quality CNC'd aluminum design, this heatsink is engineered to fit seamlessly into the PS5 console's SSD expansion slot, allowing for a quick and easy installation process.

It's worth noting that this upgrade replaces the console's drive cover (not the actual cover plates), but third-party cover plates can provide additional ventilation if desired.

Now, let's address the most pressing question: the price. The Sabrent 8TB NVMe is available for $1,009.99. However, those enrolled in the Amazon Visa rewards program can take advantage of a discounted price of $894.81. This impressive storage solution is available for purchase now.
