How does a PCIE 4.0 drive perform on a PCIE 3.0 slot? Same as the PCIE 3.0 equivalent drive or a little faster? I understand that the 4.0 won't reach maximum speeds on 3.0.

Just a heads up: These come set to 512 byte emulation, not advanced 4kn sector.

For 99.9% of all use cases, you probably won't notice a difference, but if you're doing a fresh installation as an OS drive on Windows 10, I'd recommend taking the extra time to set these to 4kn. Sabrent provides a tool to do this.
Was thinking of doing a clean install of Win10, thanks for the tip!

Quote from EfficientPocket764
:
These are sequential speeds and not really noticeable in normal use unless you're constantly moving around large files. Even then, these speeds only last until the cache runs out then you're going to be limited to whatever the TLC/QLC flash can write. Higher capacities can write faster and have more buffer but you'll always run out, unlike SLC and some very fast MLC drives that can sustain that speed the whole time.

Honestly unless youre doing very disk intensive work like running multiple VMs and databases or editing very large files, you're not going to notice any difference. Get the drive with the capacity and reliability you need.
I noticed a huge difference on my 2015 MacBook Air.

Plus most say that in actual use pcie 4 is not nearly that much faster. If it was, i'd be tempted, but also many say only trust samsung or intel for reliability and then ye another issue is I think all pcie 4 ones come with heatsinks and my mobo already has heatsinks and so I'd be unsure what to even do, especially since this is myt first time building.
You are basically correct , no reason to get gen4 unless you literally have money to burn. Otherwise it would be better spent on more powerful gfx or cpu

PCIe 4.0 is *significantly* faster than Pcie 3.0 in every single perceivable way.

Already filled my WD Black 3/4 and was about to buy another one while it's in stock. Right on time for a PCIE4 thanks.

There's only a handful of backup applications that work well with SSD cloning of 4kn drives.

I vaguely recall using EaseUS to get my 512e drive cloned to my 4kn Sabrent, but it could have been Macrium Reflect (as much as I dislike it for its antiquated licensing model).
I was using macrium reflect, it was a nightmare. Cloned from 4kn to 4kn sabrent

This is a great deal for someone who wants a PCIE 4.0 drive right now. Haven't really seen 1tb 4.0 m.2s under 200. However this uses the phison e16 controller which isn't utilizing the full 4.0 bandwidth. So if you can wait for the new phison e18 and e19t controllers due out soon, it would be much better. Plus there would be much more competition.

The Gen 4 Sabrent is 5000MB/s read:and 4400MB/s write, but you need PCIe gen 4 to take advantage of that speed.
What's a good way to determine if your mobo is gen 4 compatible? When I check the specs on mine in my Gigabyte Aero it just says it has two PCIe M.2 slots.

And if it's not compatible will you just effectively just be throttled to run at gen 3 speeds, like when you buy RAM that is too fast for your mobo? Or will there actually be hardware conflicts?

I don't think EfficientPocket764 meant you won't notice any difference by upgrading to one of these from something older. I think he meant you wouldn't notice much difference between these (or any other half-decent PCIe SSDs) for average use.

I have the pci4 version of this drive and it rips. I swear I installed windows in under 3 minutes with it. Smoking fast! Love these drives and Sabrent actually picks up the phone when you have questions.

SanDisk and Samsung are the gold standards of flash storage. Nothing wrong with either of them. This is some crap brand, which rebrands grade B binned flash storage, has crappy customer support and probably doesn't honor the warranty unless if you go through an impossible to achieve process.
Im sorry but you are talking out of the side of your face. I own the pci4 1tb. Its an excellent product. They also answer the phone and speak English. Don't believe me though, pick up a phone and call them. I just grabbed another at this price. Thumbs up and repped OP.

You will run at the pci3 speeds. Their documentation will tell you that as well.
