Sabrent Preparing 64 TB PCIe 4.0 RocketQ Battleship SSD

Sabrent first teased their upcoming RocketQ Battleship SSD offering 8x 8 TB RocketQ M.2 NVMe SSDs paired with the Highpoint SSD7540 8-port PCIe 4.0 x16 NVMe RAID controller in January. This combination offers 64 TB of NVMe storage with speeds of up to 28 GB/s, the product appears to be nearing release after HighPoint listed the SSD on their website. The RocketQ Battleship has been listed on HighPoint Technologies NVMe AIC Drive Solutions page as coming soon. The RocketQ Battleship won't come cheap with the individual 8 TB RocketQ drives costing 1299 USD each, we would expect the product to retail for north of 10,000 USD if it ever gets a public release.

That controller board alone is $1k ... wish they made cheap ones, how expensive can it be? it's just a bridge chip + the physical slots?

When you're the only one making a certain thing you can charge whatever you want.

"F U, pay me, where else you gonna go sucker?"


I used to work for a company that converted legal documents to images and what they charge for software is crazy.
