AMD Will Enable NVMe RAID On X399 ThreadRipper Platform

One of the shortcomings of AMD's X399 ThreadRipper HEDT platform was that it lacked NVMe RAID support. You did have the ability to build soft-RAID arrays using NVMe drives, you were not able to boot from them. It looks like AMD will be remedying this by adding support for NVMe RAID through a software update, which is scheduled for September 25th.

AMD’s HEDT X399 Platform Lacks NVMe RAID Boot Support

Well all this hype around AMD's ThreadRipper processors and X399 platform it seems one major issue has been reported. ThreadRipper processors of course feature full 64-lane PCI-Express gen 3.0 root complexes, which allow you to run two graphics cards at full x16 bandwidth and drop in other devices like PCI-Express NVMe SSDs. It looks like if you plan on striping these NVMe SSDs in RAID and booting from them it will not be possible, the platform lacks NVMe RAID booting support.
