Sabrent Rocket X5 PCIe Gen5 SSD breaks 12398 MB/s sequential read performance


Read speeds of 10 gigabytes per second (GB/s) were made available by the very first solid-state drives (SSDs) to hit the market. These drives were equipped with a PCIe Gen5 interface. It’s possible that one may have foreseen that this speed would soon grow. In point of fact, a company known as Sabrent is anticipated to make an announcement even sooner than this point regarding storage that is even quicker. Customers should not expect to see the new storage in stores any time in the near future since it is still in the process of being created and will not be available for purchase for some time. Despite this, the company has already carried out some testing on its own, and it predicts that the solid-state storage will be available just as soon as it is prepared to make it so.

Their Rocket X5 solid-state drive (SSD) will be able to achieve sequential read speeds of 12398 MB/s and sequential write speeds of 11845 MB/s once it is outfitted with an NVMe M.2 interface. These speeds will be capable of being achieved simultaneously. Megabytes per second is the unit used to measure speeds of this kind (as per CristalDiskMark). When compared to AORUS storage, Inland storage, and SSTC storage, all of which had maximum transfer rates of 10 GB/s, this is a considerable advancement in storage technology.

Sabrent has stated that they are optimistic that they will one day be able to accomplish speeds that are greater than those, and they hope that this day will come soon. It is stated in the company’s written materials that it is the company’s objective to improve and improve upon the performance to the greatest extent that is attainable. The fact that the company has a history of manufacturing high-performance SSDs is, in TweakTown’s opinion, evidence that the company should be well within their capabilities to accomplish this goal.
