Sabrent make a lot of high-end products, so we’re pretty excited to get their latest PCIe Gen5 drive in for review. The Sabrent Rocket 5 is built for extreme performance and massive capacities, with a 4TB and 8TB model in the range, but today, we’re starting with something more “modest” and testing the 2TB version. Promising transfer speeds of up to 14 GB/s this has the hardware to be one of the absolute fastest drives we’ve ever tested, and most certainly one of the fastest on the market right now.

It comes with a wealth of features, such as the DirectStorage optimised firmware, the latest Phison E26 controller, and support for the latest Gen5 systems including the PlayStation 5, LPDDR4 DRAM, and Micron 232L TLC memory, allowing it to deliver read speeds of up to 14000 MB/s and up to 12000 MB/s write. Finally, all of this is backed up with a 5-year warranty.


  • Our Fastest SSD Ever: Take your storage performance to the next level with the Sabrent Rocket 5, the natural successor to our award-winning Rocket 4 Plus and gaming-inspired Rocket 4 Plus-G. This fresh hardware lets you reach all-new heights.
  • Never Get Left Behind: Enjoy transfers at up to an astounding 14 GB/s, making the best use of PCIe 5.0 bandwidth. The DirectStorage-optimized firmware also makes sure you’re always at the top of your game. It’s lightning fast to match your reflexes.
  • Business Or Pleasure: Improve your workflow and increase your productivity with the fastest transfer speeds imaginable. The backward-compatible Rocket 5 is optimally balanced for content creation, high-end applications, and more. Bring the power.
  • Stylishly Cool Design: Get the drive on its own or with a custom heatsink. You can supply your own heatsink or invest in our separate high-end cooling solution, which uses top-grade materials and dual heatpipes for maximum thermal dissipation.

What Sabrent Had to Say

“Here to deliver! You’re ready for something new. We’re here to deliver. Our freshest, super-fast SSD, the Rocket 5, is finally here. The popular Rocket 4 Plus and gaming-inspired Rocket 4 Plus-G pushed the limits of what had once been possible. Now you can transcend with full PCIe 5.0 bandwidth, enjoying transfer speeds of up to 14 GB/s to supercharge your workflow. Cutting-edge games, high-end applications, and large-project file operations will never be the same again. Enhance your desktop experience with a carefully designed, DirectStorage-optimized storage solution made with your valuable time in mind. All this speed requires careful balance and control. We made sure to include an aesthetically pleasing, highly functional heatsink (sold separately) that will make sure your drive never throttles. The combination of top-grade, thermally-conductive materials and an efficient dual-heatpipe design help maintain the Rocket 5 within an ideal temperature zone. The good looks and rugged durability are pleasant side effects. For work or for play, we want you to have the fastest and most stable SSD possible. We’ve engineered the Rocket 5 to be exceptional in older systems, too, so you can enjoy top-tier performance, starting today.” – Sabrent
