AMD Threadrippper NVMe RAID Drivers Might Take A While Longer
AMD Threadripper NVMe RAID drivers were supposed to come out on September 25th according to the official announcement but that date has passed and AMD did not deliver. Getting to the bottom of things, it seems that AMD will need to more time in order to deliver the updates to motherboard partners and have them update the drivers.
The company is still excited about introducing NVMe RAID to the AMD Threadripper platform but the company needs a new driver, UEFI, RAID management application and installer in order to get things up and running. This will no doubt take some time. You should get an update from your motherboard manufacturer soon. So stay tuned for more information.
If you are thinking about buying the cheaper AMD Threadripper 1900X and are wondering whether to go with Threadripper or AMD Ryzen 7 then you can click here to find out more information regarding just that. According to AMD:
Support for this requires a new driver, BIOS, management console, and an installer and we are working with partners to complete for roll out. AMD is committed to software quality, and we have been testing its deployment and have decided to postpone the release by a few days to enhance the install experience.
A review of the Intel Core i9 7980XE was just leaked recently and the benchmarks reveal that the upcoming chip has better performance as compared to AMD Threadripper, but you will be paying a pretty penny for the additional performance and it is up to you to decide whether or not you find that additional performance worth it.
AMD has had a huge impact on the CPU market and we can see how Intel is now taking things more seriously.
Let us know what you think about AMD Threadripper NVMe RAID Drivers being delayed and whether or not you had been waiting for the update to come out.
