With the all the Cofee lake news coming from the Blue camp, the Red’s have announced something pretty significant today. AMD’s HEDT platform, X399, is getting free NVMe support. AMD had promised this feature at launch and now they have delivered. This new addition comes in the form of a driver update called RAIDXpert2. Do keep in mind, however, that the driver is still in the beta phase, which means that it may still contain bugs and other “abnormalities.”


While we all know that RAID (redundant array of independent disks) is all about increasing speed and/or reliability, until now, NVMe drives were not capable of RAID on the X399 platform, instead you only had SATA RAID. The latest and greatest SSDs are all coming out as NVMe based drives, and now you can put them in RAID 0, 1, or 10 without paying a dime (well you have to buy the drives).
