This week ASUS has launched their new ASUS RAIDR Express PCI-e solid state disk (SSD) which is actually has two separate SSDs on the same PCB, connected in RAID0 for maximum performance. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the ASUS RAIDR Express PCI-e SSD project and see it in action.
The new ASUS RAIDR Express PCI-e solid state disk offers a 240GB capacity, sequential 830MB/s read and 810MB/s write speeds, and comes fitted with double-sided metal shielding and an incredible 620,000 hours mean time between failure (MTBF).
“RAIDR Express isn’t like other SSDs. It’s the world’s first and only PCIe-based SSD with DuoMode BIOS support. With two BIOS chips onboard, RAIDR Express includes a hardware switch that lets users easily alternate between legacy and UEFI modes, ensuring the best compatibility with PCs old and new.
In legacy mode, the RAIDR Express can be used on older motherboards — those with a traditional (non-UEFI) BIOS. By switching to UEFI mode, users can significantly boost PC startup times. With the flexibility of choosing which mode is best, users can enjoy the benefits of both.”
