Great find. Heat
Voted hot. But you need PCI 4.0 CPU and motherboard to get PCI 4.0 advantage . Currently very few AMD desktop CPU have PCI. 4.0 .

5000 isn't gen 3 speeds. Amazon puts all reviews and ratings under one product. You can filter by colour and see the gen 4 speeds in the reviews.
I have the PCI 3 version of this and it's a super solid value for money NVME - in terms of performance vs cost you'd struggle to do much better.

Must admit though, moving from an old SSD to the NVME didn't really offer a noticeable difference in normal use. That said, if you're building a PC today I'd still absolutely recommend going for an NVME drive vs a normal SSD to futureproof things.

The trouble is with this you're paying a premium becoz its pci gen 4 ... better to stick with solid VFM gen3. I doubt many can take advantage , and of those , who will really need/use it?.
Great stick , but not really a great deal ..£/GB
especially when 2Tb can be Had for a few scant pounds more.

If you have a ryzen 3600 or above with x570 this is a very usable drive, faster for everything except game boot time than a Samsung Evo 970 and that is still similar on the Sabrent. If memory serves the 970 is around this price too.

Anyone else should stick with a good pcie 3.
At those speeds would you even notice the difference between gen3 and 4 lol.
You might not tell the difference but video editing, games and other IO dependant apps would tell.

You're not going to see the difference with games. The difference between SATA and NVME is hard enough to tell most of the time.

Who originally posted the deal yesterday. Thank you, Appreciate the image, will certainly help ebveryone who's interested. all credit for you for finding the deal at first.
3346200.jpgBased on Toshiba's BiCS4 96L TLC NAND Flash memory, its performance speeds can reach up to 5000 MB/s (read) and 4400 MB/s (write) when using a PCIe Gen4 motherboard. Using a PCIe Gen3 Motherboard Speeds will reach up to 3400 MB/s (read) and 3000 MB/s (write). Power consumption is much lower than traditional hard drives, making it the best embedded solution for new systems.

The Sabrent 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD was designed using PCIe 4.0 which allows for speeds of up to 5000 MB/s (read) and 4400 MB/s (write), significantly faster than PCIe 3.0.

######Note: In order to take advantage of these speeds, a PCIe Gen4 motherboard is REQUIRED. Otherwise it will be at pcie gen 3 speed at max of 3500MB/s.
When installing any NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD directly onto a PCIe Gen4 Motherboard a Heatsink is required to dissipate the heat generated by the drives extreme speed levels to avoid thermal throttling and maximize performance.#############
Asus compatible boards
3346200.jpgThe Sabrent 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD is backward compatible with PCIe 3.0. Using a Gen 3 PCIe motherboard will enable the user to reach speeds of up to 3400 MB/s (read) and 3000 MB/s (write).

Features:
  • NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 Interface.
  • PCIe 4.0 Compliant / NVMe 1.3 Compliant.

I went for the non heatsink version as MB already has the sink and thermal paste. If you didn't, I would recommend that you pay extra for the heatsink

Forgive me, I had to make a new post for this, hope you don't mind, as I thought you might not be around and it's hard to refresh it.

Thanks, appreciate it. Mine already have 3 heatsinks.

I'm going to hold off, as I can't find any TBW info for these drives. That concerns me.

Yeah, my wife always looks at me strange when these small packets come in the post and I get excited.

This is like my 10th NVME so she's used to it now

This is only 1st generation, PCIE 4.0 x4 is expected to be 7500mb/s... either way it's a nice little drive for the price. Great find.

What do you do with them? I mean apart from the obvious of course - 4K raid porn servers- video editing?

Those 4K boobies take up a lot of bandwidth.

In all honesty, I build a lot for family and friends and tinker around the house loads. Even the router is a custom linux box. My main source of income is content creation, so lots of gear which needs to be up to spec. Time is money!

Got mine today however it was DOA. It wasn't detectable by the motherboard's UEFI or even by Sabrent's own USB caddy. Amazon only refund and they won't exchange it so now I have to return the damn thing. I'm certainly not going to buy another at the current prices! Maybe it was a lucky warning that these things are crap. It was extremely hot when plugged in. I've got a 1tb PCI-E 3.0 Sabrent that works fine as an OS drive but was going to upgrade to 4.0 to utilise the MB's full potential. Anyone else's dead?

Versus 3.0

39202087-R7eSH.jpg
p.s. have no idea why my random 4K are so high
Here are the temps, 4.0 vs 3.0. X570 Asus ROG Strix heatsinks on both, after a few rounds of CDM with 1sec intervals between tests.

Pretty decent speeds and temps this end. Phison E16 holding up well.

If you look at labels in my and your pictures, you are running different sets of benchmarks, that's why the numbers are massively different

Aye. That's the CDM 7 default profile.
