    Phoronix: Sabrent Rocket 4.0 NVMe Gen4 Linux Benchmarks Against Other SATA/NVMe SSDs

    When it comes to PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs, the drives we have been using are the Corsair Force MP600 that have been working out great for pairing with the newest AMD Ryzen systems. But a Black Friday deal had the Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVMe 4.0 Gen4 PCIe M.2 SSD on sale, so I decided to pick one up to see how it was performing on Ubuntu Linux. Here are benchmarks of the Sabrent Gen4 NVMe SSD, which in the 1TB capacity can be found for $150~170 USD.

      Oh is Sabrent supporting firmware updates on non-Windows operating systems now? Last I checked they'll tell you they don't support Linux.

      I get this is sponsored content, but it's a disservice to tell users there's no compatibility issues when in reality they'll need Windows if they run into a firmware bug that has a fix.

        I think he was referring to the detection, boot and install compatibility, which was an issue for some NVMe drives used previously.

        I don't think it was sponsored. Michael bought the Sabrent on the open market just like you and me. Did you read the review?

          Right, but there's more to compatibility than that, which is why I am saying the omission of firmware update support hurts the review. Did you read my post?

          Yes I did read the review, and the first page reads like an advertisement for the product.

            FWIW, I have a PCI-e 3.0 Sabrent Rocket (512 GB) and there are no firmware updates available for it, nor does it seem to have any issue.

              Awesome. You read the review and I read your post. The world is back in balance.

                Phison PS5016-E16 controller and Toshiba BiCS4 96-layer TLC NAND. Looks great, but if I can't update the firmware on that thing, it ain't happening. These hardware vendors need to grow the F up. It's not a windows world anymore.

                  Can't the NVME cli tools be used to update FW on NVMe drives now? I swear I've done it at least once.

                    In the future please include journal iops, parallel iops, non-txn random and linear write results by running commands from lines 63-72 of this documents (run both sync and fsync variants, take lower number as test result; fio is destructive test) which would show how this SSD would perform under ceph-osd. More details is here (use Google Translate).

                    Also I need to point out that NVME SSD based on Toshiba NAND for some reason doesn't work on NanoPC-T4 (more info is here) or possibly on all RK3399-based boards.
