Raid 5 and z490 chipset

I am looking to build a new system.  I would like to know if the z490 chipset supports VROC for m.2 drives in a raid 5 configuration.  Is this possible or does only the x299 chipset support this?

Thanks.

Sorry, VROC is not supported with the Z490 chipset. See https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000030814/memory-and-storage/ssd-software.h... for more information.

Thanks for the update. Would intel RST be able to make a bootable raid 5 array using m.2 drives if the motherboard supports it. such as this model from asus?

According to the latest brief (here: Intel RAID Solutions for Client and Enterprise), Intel RST has support for (a) bootable RAID 0/1/5/10 arrays and (b) up to 4 CPU-attached NVMe SSDs. Putting the two capabilities together would indicate that, yes, you can put together a RAID5 array containing M.2 NVMe SSDs.

In the case of this particular board, I see support for three M.2 NVMe SSDs, which is a sufficient number of drives for the implementation of a RAID5 array. 

Hope this helps,
