ASUS RoG prepping to launch PCI-E SSD in May

First seen at this year’s CES in Las Vegas, the ASUS RoG Raidr Express PCI-E Solid-State Drive is now well underway to make its official market debut which is slated later this month.

Just to give you a bit of background about this storage device, the RoG Raidr Express uses PCI Express 2.0 x4 interface to fully maximize the drive’s incredible read/write speed which, according to the RoG Team, tops at 830Mbps (Read) and 810Mbps (Write).

To achieve such feat, ASUS used multiple solid-state drives which are then configured in RAID 0. But that’s not all, as these drives are reported to utilize dual LSI Sandforce SD-2281 controllers which allows it to handle up to 100,000 IOPS.

In terms of compatibility, ASUS confirms that the Raidr Express will be fully compatible with all major chipsets and OS. According to DigiTimes, it will also “supports both legacy and UEFI BIOS systems”.

As of the time of writing, ASUS has yet to confirm the exact launch date of the RoG Raidr Express, as well as the pricing. From what we know so far, it’ll be offered in 120GB and 240GB capacity, but we’re not sure if the company will release it in other sizes.
