Not content with a record-breaking read speed of over 12,000 MB/s for its Rocket X5 PCIe Gen 5 SSD Sabrent has announced a new partnership to push the envelope even further. Sabrent and Phison are now working together to develop an SSD with read speeds up to 14,000 MB/s. Such a collaboration is sure to yield impressive results with Phison’s well-known expertise in developing controller technology and Sabrent’s established presence in the storage medium industry. The announcement comes as Sabrent only just revealed CrystalDiskMark scores for its latest Rocket X5 1 TB SSD that hit over 12,398/11,844 MB/s read/write speeds.

“In the last few months, we have seen a wealth of new systems that all support Gen 5 SSD capabilities. A few companies have even released Gen 5 SSDs rating in the 10,000 MB/s range. At Sabrent, we have been working very hard to bring this new product to market while working extremely closely with Phison to develop our new line of Gen 5 SSDs to push the boundaries to 14,000 MB/s. There have been many challenges to overcome with these new products to meet our strict requirements for new drives to enter our lineup of high-quality products. We have been working to make the best Gen 5 SSD possible to improve system performance and user experience. Here we have our new Sabrent Rocket X5 Gen 5 SSD being tested to our specifications.

We will showcase examples of what we have come up with to demonstrate our commitment to bringing the highest quality and top performers to the marketplace. There is no doubt that many have already seen the Tech Demo sample results that were sent out by Phison. We aim to improve that and increase the performance as high as possible. At this stage, we have passed 12,000 MB/s with the technology available. Below we’d like to show a sample of what we are able to achieve with the Technology Demo we present to you today.

With our CrystalDiskMark testing runs, we have broken records that top the charts. Over 12,000 MB/s in both Sequential Read and almost 12,000 MB/s Sequential Writes numbers to drool over. Technology is limiting us at this point to reaching the 14,000 MB/s goal, but we suspect that will come at a later point.

The new Rocket X5 is still in the tuning process, and we expect performance to improve even better. This still needs to be a finished and finalized product, but we are moving forward with the technology we have at hand now. To name a few items, many things can change, including the name and label. As we work with Phison very closely, new tech is on the way, and Phison assists us in pushing what we have now to achieve groundbreaking results.

Stay tuned to Sabrent for news on our other top-performing products as we approach the release. Our Test Lab is very busy these days with many new groundbreaking products we will release soon.”

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
