Asus previews its Hyper Express drive

Written by Slobodan Simic

Made in partnership with Kingston

ASUS has shown off an early design of a new SATA Express enclosure that will soon come to market, called the ASUS Hyper Express drive. Made in partnership with Kingston, the Hyper Express drive is an SATA Express interface enclosure which features host-agnostic controller with RAID 0 array of SSDs.

As noted by Legitreviews, the ASUS Hyper Express SATA Express enclosure features a RAID 0 controller with two SSDs, in the sample case, mSATA drives. The Asus Hyper Express will apparently be available with either two mSATA or two M.2 SSDs packed in a smaller 2.5-inch enclosure or two 2.5-inch SATA SSDs packed in a 3.5-inch housing.

Legitreviews had a chance to play with the pre-production sample of the new ASUS Hyper Express showing that it managed to get quite close to Asus' performance claims of up to 745/809 MB/s when drive got 704MB/s sequential read and 746MB/s sequential write in the CrystalDiskMark 3.0.3.

Legitreviews reports that Asus Hyper Express are expected in retail within next two months and probably be available with and without actual SSDs in it, offering some choice to buyers.
