and if so from when ? Is there a schedule when new models will be added? Or is VROC almost history again?

 

so less information about VROC ...

 

I want to create a bootable Raid 0 on a

Asus Rampage VI Apex with Hyper M.2 X 16 Card and Intel Core i9-9900X

with 4x Samsung SSD 970 EVO 2TB

 

will that be possible or will I be forced to use the slower Intel M.2 SSD´s ?

Hello JSchm18,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel® Technical Support.

 

As we understand, you need assistance with your Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (Intel® VROC) with your Intel® X299 Chipset. If we infer correctly, please take into consideration the information below:

• Based on the Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (Intel® VROC) support on X299 (

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000026106/memory-and-storage/ssd-software.h...

) article:

-Does Intel VROC support third-party SSDs on the X299 platform?

No. Intel VROC on X299 platforms supports Intel® SSDs only. For a full list of supported Intel SSDs, please see the Intel® VROC Configuration List (

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000030310/memory-and-storage/ssd-software.h...

).

-What is the Intel VROC SKU supported on X299?

The Intel VROC SKU supported on X299 is:

Intel VROC-Intel SSD only SKU (VROCISSDMOD): RAID 0/1/5/10 support on Intel SSDs only.

• To answer your questions:

-To create a bootable NVMe RAID array you need VROC and as mentioned before your motherboard only support the usage of the Intel SSD only SKU (VROCISSDMOD) with Intel SSD.

-The list of supported hardware is always growing but we cannot provide you with a release date or a confirmation if this drive is going to be supported in the future.

We hope you find this information helpful. If you need further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us again.

 

Best regards,
