Made for real speed demons, the Asus ROG RAIDR Express PCI-E SSD brings your gaming experience to a brand-new level with really, really fast disk performance. Built on the latest Toshiba 19nm 16k page NAND flash, and powered by dual LSI SandForce SF-2281 controllers, it delivers sequential read/write speed 830/810MBps and up to 100,000 4K read/write IOPS, allowing lightning fast app launches and ultra smooth system responsiveness. The ROG RAMDisk further pushes the envelope with over 12,000MBps by using the computer RAM as a high speed virtual drive.
The ASUS ROG RAIDR Express comes with user-friendly DuoMode that contains two BIOS chipset to, for the first time in the world, support both legacy and UEFI motherboard. An array of exclusive ROG features, like ROG SSD TweakIt, HybridDisk, Secure Erase and ROG CrystalDiskMark maintains the high speed you expect, while extending the drive’s life. This SSD is equipped with professional-looking double-sided metal shielding for better protection and heat dissipation. And paired with aggressive ROG logo and red color accent, the ASUS ROG RAIDR Express is fantastic for your gaming power house, where the power is on or off.
DuoMode - First legacy and UEFI BIOS-compatible PCIe SSD RAIDR Express is the world’s first and only PCIe-based SSD that features two BIOS chips and an onboard hardware flip switch, letting you alternate between legacy and UEFI modes, ensuring the best compatibility. In legacy mode, the RAIDR Express can be used on older motherboards — those with traditional (non-UEFI) BIOS. Flip to UEFI mode, and you can significantly boost the startup time of your PC. You get the flexibility of choosing which mode is right for you, and make the best of both.
Driver-free design with complete TRIM support With an Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI), RAIDR Express doesn’t require any drivers – so you can experience the incredible speed benefits from the moment you plug it in. RAIDR Express also features support for TRIM command from within the operating system – support for which few other PCIe-based SSDs can provide. This keeps RAIDR Express running at top speed while extending the drive’s life.
RAMDisk- Double up on speed with RAM and SSD This brilliant feature allows you to use up to 80% of your computer’s available memory as a high-speed virtual drive to accelerate the loading of favorite apps and games – to over 12,000MBps in our tests! ROG RAMDisk uses what are known as ‘junction points’, so there’s no need to re-install your software. Just choose an application, and RAMDisk will ensure that your PC will directly access its files and data using the extreme speed of the computer’s own RAM. But that’s just one great feature of RAMDisk. Better still, RAMDisk extends the life of your SSD because it reduces unnecessary read-write cycles. RAMDisk even backs itself up to the main system drive when you shut down your PC, and restores itself automatically the next time you power up. It’s ready to roll as soon as you are — it’s all speed and no hassle!
SSD TweakIt - Take control for faster and longer-lasting storage SSD TweakIt is designed to provide the easiest way to get top-notch performance and ultra-long durability. It auto-relocates repetitive write activities to RAMDisk for even faster browsing, while keeping RAIDR Express at peak performance for much longer. You can also apply a preset profile that automatically refines the processor (CPU) settings to achieve a speed boost of up to 5%.
Secure Erase One simple boot from the included utility disc totally refreshes RAIDR Express to regain its original performance – like it just came out of the box the day you bought it. This is done by securely and completely removing all data from RAIDR Express in Linux, so you can also refresh your RAIDR Express even it’s the system drive. Now, you don’t need to worry about the performance degradation due to accumulated data and frequent writing.
ROG HybriDisk - Enjoy both SSD speed and HDD space ROG HybriDisk supercharges you with hybrid storage powered by SSD caching, so you can make your hard disk drive (HDD) go faster than SATA! It works with your HDD (up to 4TB), so you can enjoy data transfers that effectively smash SATA-based SSD speed limits (600MBps). You can now enjoy hard drive capacities with SSD speeds – the best of both worlds.
