At the same time as the official launch of the 8-core fever processor Ryzen ThreadRipper 1900X, AMD also announced good news that the ThreadRipper platform will be updated to join the NVMe RAID boot function.
On the ThreadRipper processor and X399 motherboard platform, users can use NVMe SSD hard disks to build a soft RAID array, but it is a great pity that the operating system cannot be installed and booted in it.
Especially considering that the ThreadRipper platform supports 60 PCI-E 3.0 lanes on a single processor, which is extremely scalable and can connect up to seven peripherals, including multiple SSDs.
AMD announced today that it will release a new version of the driver on September 25, which supports the boot function of NVMe RAID arrays on the ThreadRipper platform, including three modes of RAID 0/1/10, and can add up to 10 hard drives to the array!
ThreadRipper 1950X/1920X/1900X can enjoy this benefit, but the motherboard BIOS also needs an upgrade.
AMD also confirmed that mainstream Ryzen and X370/B350 motherboards will not support the NVMe RAID boot function, which is a unique benefit for enthusiasts.
Just a few days ago, AMD also updated the X399/X370/B350/A320 chipset driver, supports RAIDXpert array mode, and can operate or remotely manage the disk through a browser.
