You can create any NVMe soft raid with disk utility and it will double the transfar rate of the raid if you use two NVMes..I don't think so, does Apple have drivers for the Intel Raid (which is supported by the bios). I know Windows and Linux supports it.
And making it bootable is another thing
I have no use for a fast disk that I can't boot.You can create any NVMe soft raid with disk utility and it will double the transfar rate of the raid if you use two NVMes..
Don’t understand where are the problems you see. Guess your way of thinking is by far to complex and complicated ...
Well, please let me know once you found a solution..I have no use for a fast disk that I can't boot.
Create a RAID (or encrypted disk) with Disk Utility, but AFAIK, you can't boot a Core Storage based disk (not the way a real mac boot loader can..
So that leaves two possibility:
1- Find Intel RAID mac drivers
2- Implement a boot loader supporting Core Storage.
The later would be better, I could encrypt my disk once again...
iMac Pro uses a new T2 chip which has a NVME controller and other things like image processor. I wouldn't recommend RAID0 even on SSD, there's twice the chance of failures. Most likely the T2 chip has some type of hardware error correction. You're not really going to feel the difference between 2.5GB/sec and 3.5GB/sec unless you're doing some major file transfers.The real iMac Pro have some insane SSD speed (3.5GB/s read and write), iFixit tear down showed that for the 1TB option, they were using two 512GB SSD in RAID0.
If we could duplicate that setup that would be awesome
