Asus ROG RAIDR PCIe x2 SSD pictures and specs

Asus showed-off its first SSD called Raidr under ROG series so it’s made specifically keeping gamers and enthusiasts in mind. When we say that, it obviously means higher-than-consumer-grade performance level. The drive is set to be released sometime in May, but the pricing is still unknown.

According to the marketing readouts, Raidr can perform sequential read and write speeds up to 830 MB/s and 810 MB/s and can do up to 100,000 IOPS for 4K Read/Write operations. There are also certain exclusive features from Asus: RAMDisk, SSDTweakIt, ROG HybriDisk, ROG themed CrystalDiskMark benchmarking software, secure erase (thank you!) and firmware updater tool with Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 software.

Ramdisk

The software part is what I am really interested to see, especially Ramdisk and Hybrid Disk.
