Asus is entering the SSD market. The company teased the Rog Strix SQ7 NVME SSD on its Taiwanese Facebook page.
Based on the sticker, it is an m.2 pcie 4.0 nvme-ssd with the standard 2280 length and 1 TB of storage capacity. It is the first time that Asus releases an SSD. At the moment they do have SSD enclosures, with or without a Phison SSD, in their range. It is not known whether this new SSD is also a collaboration with Phison.
The company is following the lead of competitors Gigabyte and MSI, who have also introduced their own SSDs (both with Phison controllers) in recent years. The SSDs from these companies were generally well received.
Price and release date have not yet been announced. Asus is holding its ‘Boundless’ event on May 17, so we’ll probably hear more then.
