- The Sabrent 4TB Rocket Q4 NVMe PCIe SSD starts at $750.
Sabrent rolled out the 4TB Rocket Q4 NVMe PCIe SSD without much fanfare. The SSD is twice the size of the previously largest SSD which maxed out at 2TB. As pointed out by PC Gamer, Sabrent listed the new SSD on Amazon without a formal announcement. The SSD costs $750 on Amazon or $770 if you want an included heatsink.
TweakTown first spotted the large and speedy SSD online. The SSD has sequential read speeds up to 4,900MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 3,500MB/s. To reach those speeds, you'll have to use hardware that supports PCIe 4.0. Right now, the only chipsets that support it are the AMD X570 and B550.
While $750 is expensive for an SSD, it is mostly in line with similar products in terms of price per gigabyte. The 2TB model of the same SSD comes in at $320, which is about $0.16 per gigabyte. The 4TB variant is about $0.19 per gigabyte, which is slightly more but within a reasonable margin. You can see how Sabrent's new SSD stacks up against our Best SSD collection.
This fast SSD supports PCIe 4.0 and hits blazing fast read and write speeds. It's also the largest PCIE 4.0 SSD on the market.
