Remember the days when storage was anything but portable? If we wanted to take storage with us, it meant the difficult decision between heaving a big enclosure or a tiny thumb drive with limited capacity.
Luckily, that’s not a choice we need to worry about these days with modern tech and good design.
Asus has recently revealed their new ROG Strix Arion M.2 SSD enclosure will enable users to bring those NVMe speeds anywhere they want with them.
What is the Asus ROG Strix Arion M.2 SSD Enclosure?
The Asus Arion M.2 enclosure is a USB device that works with all PCIe 3.0 M.2 SSDs up to the 2280 form. It offers a screwdriver-free installation which makes it simple enough to add an M.2 SSD to your computer setup without any hassle.
After installing this driver, you’ll find that the enclosure has USB 3.2 Gen 2 speeds up to 10gbps, delivered through a USB Type-C cable.
If you’re looking for fast read/write speeds, this could prove very handy. While many fast flash drives are still below the 500MB/s rate, this product could read highs of 1,250MB/s.
Asus built this design with an aluminum enclosure and integrated thermal pads that allow for even heat dissipation. They are also offering a protective holder that will help make its portability safe and secure.
For the design-oriented among us, you might be pleased to hear that you will be able to illuminate that ROG logo up to match with the rest of your Asus hardware, through the use of Asus’s Aura Sync.
With a convenient design and the performance to match, this is sure to be a handy piece of kit for anyone who needs to take storage with them.
Where can I get one?
We’re currently not sure when the Asus Arion will be available for purchase and the same goes for the cost. They haven’t yet made these announcements, but we will be keeping our eyes peeled for any details and update you when they come in.
Does this sound like something you’d like to get your hands on? Have you struggled to find good storage solutions like this in the past?
