    Where can you buy VROC keys? I haven't see them anywhere for sale,does Intel even sale these "mythical" keys yet?
     
  3. Asus gimmicks never work as well as they should, and buying a key from intel.......screw that noise. High point, Broadcom, and several others offer nvme raid cards. I know the asus gimmick looks pretty, but they always suck. Have seen it time and time again. I myself have fallen victim to it. I had an asus dual socket 1207 board for those gimmicky quadfather setups........that thing was never right. Asus replaced the board 4 times before they admitted it was just a bad design. Dont do it.......get a real raid card. You will be glad you did.

    I do not see any chip, to me looks like an adapter to get 4 lines to each nvme unit.

    Maybe is the bios of the motherboard that has to support it and you can get it for free or by keys?

    Asking money to activate a raid is ridiculos, is just the evolution of the old ich9R and ich10R raid setup.

    Is there anything that would prevent this from working in other systems? Or even non-Asus boards? $50 for 4x M.2 slots is a decent price if it is platform agnostic. I do understand there could be some complication using this card in many lesser mobos, since many of the x16 slots don't have x16 lanes (which a card like this needs) but if you have all the lanes, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Since most boards don't support RAID with NVMe, you could just do software RAID.

    As usual Amd is discriminated against. Debaters video clearly shows this works best with an Amd system. YouTube haveturnedinto sales men not reporters.

    I kinda love that daughterboards are becoming a thing again...
     

  11. they sure look like the same ones. curious. even more curious that the board he used is definitely not approved for use with it if you go by what asus says.
