Latest BIOS Update For MSI Motherboards Brings Support For CPU-Attached RAID

MSI is one of the leading motherboard manufacturers in the industry and now the company has introduced support for the CPU-Attached RAID to its select MSI motherboards with a new BIOS update.

For those who don’t know, the CPU-Attached RAID provides better read and write speeds compared to the PCH and it is quite evident in the benchmarks revealed by MSI showcasing a significant bump in read and write speeds with the CPU-Attached RAID compared to the PCH.

Not only that, MSI has also created M.2 Genie, “a brilliant feature to make setting up RAID 0 for M.2 much easier and less time consuming with fewer steps to connect the M.2 devices and enjoy higher speed.”

However, before you can take advantage of the higher read and write speeds with the CPU-Attached raid make sure you have updated the BIOS.

Also, this BIOS update or the CPU-Attached RAID is available for select MSI motherboards including Intel Z370 Express and Intel X299 Express. The following are the supported MSI motherboards for the CPU-Attached RAID.

Speaking of MSI, Intel Core i9-8950HK has popped up online for an unreleased MSI laptop. The leak comes from 3DMark who tested out the yet to be released MSI laptop with dual GTX 1080 along with Intel Core i9 mobile processor.

According to the leak, the processor has 6 cores with 12 threads and the processor itself will be unlocked meaning users will be able to overclock the i9.

The processor will have a base clock of 2.9 GHz and 3.9 GHz with the turbo. While it is just a leak but, it seems that laptop manufacturers have their hands on the chip to manufacture their laptops.
