Many of us are relying on our built-in M.2 slot for RAID and that’s perfectly fine. For those who require supremely high transfer speeds or require data redundancy too, then Gigabyte has a solution for you – the newly announced AORUS RAID SSD 2TB AIC Expansion Card.
GIGABYTE AORUS RAID SSD 2TB AIC Expansion Card
The unit contains a Phison E12 RAID controller and 4x512GB NVMe M.2 SSDs which are able to deliver a maximum of 6.3GB/s sequential read and 6.0GB/s sequential write speed which outperforms traditional SSDs around 1.8 times faster.
Sporting a single blower design with a dual thermal pad setup, it has an active cooling design through its large internal cooling fins with the built-in M.2 SSDs having heatsinks to dissipate heat efficiently. 9 temperature sensors are used to monitor the temperatures through AORUS’s Storage Manager and fan speeds can be adjusted as well.
The highlighted feature of this card is the support for OS Installation that enables users to enjoy the rated transfer speeds immediately. Not only that, configuration from RAID 0 to RAID 1 or RAID 10 helps users to achieve the best balance between performance and data redundancy.
