Right now the fastest SSDs on the market are those using the PCIe 4.0 interface. You can nearly double the speeds of last-generation PCIe 3.0 drives, and right now during Prime Day, you can score 20% off the Sabrent Rocket PCIe 4.0 1TB drive – but not on Amazon. 

Right now, this Sabrent Gen4 drive is just $159 at Newegg (opens in new tab) with code 2FTSTECH269. That's a sweet $40 right off the sale price. 

With rated sequential read and write speeds of 5,000 MB/s and 4,400 MB/s, respectively, along with a rated endurance of 1,800TBW, the Sabrent Rocket Gen4 will both last a long time and will be an incredibly fast drive. Plus, if you're a PC gamer who wants their system to be totally future-proof, it's only a matter of time before the PCIe 4.0 SSDs in the PS5 and Xbox Series X start lifting the storage speed requirements of next-generation PC games. 

So, now is the perfect time to future-proof the storage in your system.
