Upgrade your RAID
With Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (VROC), unused CPU PCle® lanes can be assigned to storage, allowing you to create a bootable RAID array with multiple M.2 SSDs. Unlike motherboard PCH-based RAID, VROC isn't confined by the 32 Gbps DMI bottleneck, so multiple drives can be teamed to provide incredible throughput.
4X the bandwidth
Hyper M.2 x16 Card is designed specifically for VROC and features four M.2 slots, providing up to 128 Gbps of bandwidth per card.
Design for unthrottled transfer speed
The card is armed with a large heatsink and active fan to ensure drives are kept cool. An insane number of drives can run in parallel across multiple VROC cards to deliver staggering throughput and massive capacity for system drives, scratch disks, and anything else you want to access at warp speed.
1Purchase a VROC key from Intel.
2Insert the VROC key into ASUS X299 motherboards.
3Fit your Hyper M.2 x 16 Card into an ASUS X299 motherboard, along with a compatible Intel Core™ i7* or i9 CPU
*Supported only by Intel's Core i7-78XX and i9-79XX Series CPUs.
** To create a bootable RAID, Intel VROC requires use of Intel SSDs.
