    It's finally happened! ASUS took a long overdue plunge into the ocean of enthusiast storage, by unveiling the Republic of Gamers (ROG) RAIDR, a PCI-Express SSD that uses a number of mSATA SSD sub-units in an internal RAID 0 configuration that's abstract to the host. As it goes with every other ROG product, the RAIDR is dressed in secsi red+black, and uses a conventional full-height add-on card design that's completely covered by an EMI shield. The card connects to its host over PCI-Express 2.0 x4, and probably packs four mSATA 6 Gb/s sub-units, which make up various capacities.

    ASUS ROG RAIDER PCI-Expressseen as a PCI Express 4 and is just as great as well-known REVO DRIVE3., Maybe MAX IPOS REVODRIVE X2 ... I've been using REVODRIVE3 240GB and I can say that, given the base ROG series a very good solution for geameing. Very fast load on Iternet maps ....: D. 1 to 2 Gb / s max loadeeng ...:)
