I’m looking to add more M.2 SSDs to my Asrock X399 Taichi. I do not need Raid, just 4 extra individual drives. One could get 4 adapter cards but that would take up 4 slots. 1 16x slot would be much easier for me.
There are three cards potentially suitable:
Delock PCIe x16 IOI – 4 x M.2 Key M Nvme – Bifurcation
The cheapest one is the Asrock, but that is advertised as a Raid card. It’s also quite large. The compact non-Raid Delock card is more expensive.
Is the Asrock capable of what I need, or do I have to get the Delock? What advantage/disadvantage would the Asus have vs the Asrock?
Please advise, thank you!
