At CES 2013 earlier this year, we met up with ASUS to discuss some upcoming new products as always. One of the products was presented to us, in an rather vague fashion as you may have seen in the video coverage. That product was the new ASUS ROG RAIDR Express PCI Express SSD and it's finally coming to market.
The RAIDR features a switch on the card itself that allows one to make it compatible with a traditional or UEFI BIOS with just the flick of a switch. And in terms of longevity, the RAIDR seems to take after enterprise level products with a 620,000 MTBF which is roughly 70 years. Since enthusiasts upgrade constantly, we'll probably be seeing this third, fourth and fifth hand in the near future.
Pricing of the ASUS ROG RAIDR has not yet been determined nor has availability been released. But it is one step closer to becoming a real contender for your wallet when it does eventually launch. In the meantime you can check out the video below and pull up the full press release at the link right below that.
