So, you want more even more capacity, better sequential performance and higher maximum random performance than RST RAID can give you? It's easy to accomplish with Intel VROC Direct to CPU RAID and a VROC capable M.2 Quad Card like the ASRock Ultra Quad M.2 Card. Read our Review HERE. In the consumer space you are limited to using Intel X299 platforms for VROC. Your motherboard must also be capable of bifurcating a 16-lane PCIe slot into 4x4 lanes. You can do it with either RAID 0 boot volumes or RAID 0 secondary volumes.

We aren't going to bother with a boot volume for this review because we just don't have the time to do so before product launch. If you intend to create a bootable VROC RAID volume, you will need to inject the latest RSTe driver into your Windows install. To create a secondary Intel 800P VROC volume like we did here, you only need to be sure your PCIe 16x slot with the Ultra Quad M.2 Card is set to 4x4 in the system BIOS, and that you have installed the latest Intel Rapid Storage Technology enterprise (RSTe) driver and utility. We stayed with the default 128 KB stripes because we have determined it to be the best overall performing stripe size.

One Million 4K random IOPS. VROC RAID is not bandwidth limited like RST RAID.
