ASUS unveil their Raidr PCI Express-based SSD capable of 830MB/sec

ASUS' Raidr PCI Express SSD is capable of 830MB/sec

| Storage News | Posted: Apr 18, 2013 9:11 am

ASUS are ready to launch their first storage product in the form of the Asus Raidr storage card under their Republic of Gamer brand of products. What makes the ASUS Raidr device stand out from the crowd is its reliance on the PCIe 2.0 x2 port it'll use in your system, oh and those blistering read/write speeds.

We're looking at dual LSI SandForce SD-2281 controllers using Toshiba's 19nm 16k page size MLC sync-NAND flash. Sequential read and writes are impressive, with the 240GB drive capable of 830MB/sec read, and 810MB/sec write. The 120GB is slightly slower, with 765MB/sec and 775MB/sec for read and write, respectively. ASUS' Raidr PCIe card is capable of 100,000 IOPS, it of course supports TRIM and has a total power consumption of around 16W.

The drive runs a kind of internal RAID0, and the circuit board is covered by a protective metal shell with the usual red and black ROG theme. We should hear more about the ASUS Raidr the closer we get to Computex, which is only a little over six weeks away.
