This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

The Sabrent 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD Extreme Performance Solid State Drive (SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB) delivers all the advantages of flash disk technology with PCIe Gen4.0 x4 interface.

Based on 3D 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.

The 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).

What processor and motherboard?


Dude, this is PCI 4.0 and your gear isn't supporting it. You need ryzen 3xxx and X570 mobo combo sa far as I understand. Better grab normal version for 88 quid. To be fair gains from NVMe aren't really that great unless u copy tons of stuff between 2 same NVMe drives.

Forget about it

While we’re on the topic what’s currently the best free cloning software?



Macrium Reflect free; alternatives are Clonezilla and Easus Todo. I have used Macrium Reflect and Eusus and both are easy to use.

I’m a little behind with these m.2 ssd’s. I’m using a 2070 super on a 16x pcie and I keep reading something about when using these ssd’s, you have to drop bandwidth to 4x. Could someone explain? Is this going to effect the bandwidth my gfx card. I am technically minded so it doesn’t need to be an idiots guide just a refresher. Thanks.

i5 9600K - ASUS Maximus XI Hero

I also run 4 HDD inc 1 Samsung SSD for the OS - All SATA. I believe these m.2 ssd’s will also disable one of my SATA ports. Seems a lot of hassle which is why I’ve been staying away from them. With the possibility of losing a port I need for another hdd and adding extra heat to my system from the m.2.

I’m currently deciding whether I buy one of these or just replace one of my old hdd with a standard SSD.

If you have pcie slots free you could consider a riser card, I have this one and 2 Sabrents on it. Does take 8 lanes though

This or the Corsair Force MP510
Didn't realise PCIe4 was out. Awesome. And they're not asking for too much more for it. Are we expecting these to get faster? Not quite at a 2x increase Vs PCIe3 yet..
No real world difference with a decent gen3, i would save my pennies and get a gen3.

I use Aomeii backupper standard and find it really good.
just installed my new samsung evo plus last night. Windows 10 pro installed within 5-10mins lol
My mobo is only gen 3 so wouldn't work out well for me cost wise but good find Op!

Yes I have am using that too - its a good all round tool- does cloning as well as disk partitioning
Hi IDominus & Crew. Any idea if a Macbook pro 2018 2.9 GHz Intel Core i9 with 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4 & Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB will be able to take advantage of this 4Gen function or should I stick with a 3Gen alternative? I’m looking at the Adata XPG SX2800 Pro 1TB & a USB 3.1 NVMe PCIe 2.M enclosure. I would be using it for music production to access/read & write audio samples & possibly doing some video editing too. Any advice would be much appreciated.

As far I am aware this will only owrk with an AMD x570 motherboard AMD 3xxxx CPU as these are the chipsets that support PCI Express 4 bus

I bought the PCI e 3.0 version a few weeks back when it was reduced & agree if you do not have x570 motherboard then you may as well get the PCIe 3.0 version. However if I had the choice now I would have purhased this at this price as I do have the x570 board & AMD 3600 CPU. Agree the speed in normal day to day operations would be difficult to appreciate but I do undertake back up & restores monthly & regular anti-virus scans - in these situations you do appreciate the speed. Anyway its great when you have the use of cutting end tech for those enjoy such things.
