The ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 Gen 4 Expansion Card supports up to 4 NVMe M.2 devices of up to 256 through a PCI-E 4.0 X16, PCI-E X8 and X16 interface. It feaures a two-phase power solution with up to 14-watt output to support the latest NVMe drives, large heatsinks and active fan that reduces M.2 temperatures, and is compatible with AMD TRX40/X570 PCI-E 4.0 for NVMe RAID, supports Intel platform RAIN-on-CPU functions, and supports other motherboards via PCI-E bifurcation in BIOS settings.
RAID on CPU
The ASUS Hyper M.2 x16 Gen 4 Card is compatible with the Intel® X299, Z390, Z370 and future platforms’ RAID-on-CPU function, and supports PCIe 4.0 NVMe RAID on the AMD TRX40 and X570 platforms. Unused CPU PCle lanes can be assigned to storage, allowing you to create a bootable RAID array with up to four M.2 SSDs.
M.2 SSD support dependent on CPU and motherboard design. Please check the specifications and user manual of your motherboard. Update to the latest BIOS and set up PCIe bifurcation settings before using the NVMe RAID function.
One card, 8X the bandwidth
The ASUS Hyper M.2 x16 Gen 4 Card uses PCIe 4.0, which doubles the bandwidth per lane compared to PCIe 3.0. With four M.2 slots, it offers up to 256 Gbps of bandwidth per card, 8X the bandwidth of a single PCIe 3.0 drive.
Design for unthrottled transfer speeds
The ASUS Hyper M.2 x16 Gen 4 Card has four M.2 slots — supporting both PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 — that allow you to expand your system with high-performance SSD storage. Designed for the latest generation of NVMe drives, the card features an upgraded power supply that provides up to 14W of power per drive, as well as a large heatsink and active fan to ensure that drives stay cool for optimum performance.
