WD Black AN1500 2TB & Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 2TB

WD Black AN1500 2TB

WD Black has been the enthusiast and gaming brand for WD for the last decade. More recently, WD has lit a fire under the brand, releasing new products to the portfolio, namely the SN850, which out of nowhere, no hype involved, became the best drive you can buy without question.

Another part of that portfolio release was the AN1500 alongside the D50 Game Dock. The AN1500 is your traditional AIC (Add-in Card) sporting a PCIe 3.0 x8 interface offering increased throughput up to 6500 MB/s read and 4100 MB/s write with several capacity options including both 1TB and 2TB, along with a 4TB part at the high-end.

Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 2TB

Naturally, enthusiasts are all over this drive, but Sabrent’s latest and greatest deserves a close look from prosumers and professionals as well. If you are processing write-intensive data by the terabytes, then the Rocket 4 Plus is the drive for you. It offers unparalleled write performance, class-leading endurance, and will be available in capacities of up to 4TB.

Speaking of capacity, we have for your viewing pleasure the capacity point that we consider the current sweet spot for enthusiasts/gamers – 2TB. We will have a 1TB Rocket Plus review coming soon. Also, this review marks the debut of our next Gen SSD test system based on AMD’s 5900X CPU and our Gen4 only chart.

9/28/20 Tech News: Sabrent Rocket Q4 NVMe 2TB SSD & More

Continuing along, the Rocket Q4 chewed through AS SSD like it was no big deal, and when unleashed on ATTO, the Rocket Q4 served up truly elite performances. Next and probably the most impressive for a QLC SSD, the Rocket Q4 delivered over 800 MB/s when writing 100GB of data. Rounding things out, the Rocket Q4 served up excellent user experience, as demonstrated by our PCMark 1o Quick System Disk test.
