Details on Sabrent’s new Rocket 2230 SSD

The Rocket 2230 is available in sizes up to 1TB in a single-sided form factor, so it’s compatible with all your devices and still offers plenty of space. Performance has also improved, with the Rocket 2230 employing a new Gen4 NVMe SSD controller capable of speeds up to 5GBps and pushing up to 800,000 IOPS. Flash memory is also designed to run fast and efficiently so your devices don’t overheat.

The Rocket 2230 fits just about anywhere. Need to upgrade your Steam Deck, Microsoft Surface, or other device where space is at a premium? Sabrent has you all covered with this brand new SSD designed to make your life easier. It works on any type of slot, so it will always come in handy. It may also be the right fit for your HTPC or smaller system.

Bigger than it looks

Don’t let the small size fool you: the Rocket 2230 is a very fast unit. It delivers NVMe Gen4 performance in a tiny form factor. It reaches 5GBps and pushes up to 800K IOPS with great responsiveness. It is also backwards compatible with PCIe Gen3 and Gen2 slots with low bandwidth but excellent latency.

Many 2230 drives have limited capacity, which makes life more difficult, especially when building a large collection of games. Many devices have limited internal storage space, forcing you to pay a premium or rely on microSD cards. Now you can store anything you want in one drive since the Rocket 2230 is available in capacities up to 1TB.

State of the art hardware

Il Rocket 2230 features new PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD controller with outstanding 3D TLC. Often you’re forced to compromise with the 2230 drives, settling for integrated controllers and/or QLC for capacity. This new Gen4 controller offers desktop gaming performance combined with efficient flash for an optimal experience. Without DRAM and with HMB support, it does not overheat the device.

In addition, Steam Deck SSDs (here for more info) were tested in Sabrent Labs to verify the performance users can expect. Testing of what comes pre-installed within Steam Deck has highlighted slow SSD drives, which can lead to poor gaming performance. Several purchased Steam Decks with different SSD capacities were tested. Finally, KDiskMark was tested in the lab on the desktop with the available Steam Decks. KDiskMark, which is very similar to CrystalDiskMark, has achieved disappointing results, to say the least. However, after installing the new 1TB Sabrent 2230 SSD, I immediately saw a dramatic increase in performance. The performance boost has made the Steam Deck much more responsive, game load times faster, and the overall gaming experience has improved. With faster loading times for levels and game elements.
