ASUS is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of motherboards and one of the largest manufacturers of computer equipment in general. It produces just about anything you can imagine, from mouse pads to giant widescreen displays. However, their portfolio still has some gaps. One of them is solid state drives. In the near future, ASUS will close this gap.
ASUS Taiwan office published on its Facebook page* a promotional poster that the company will soon release its first NVMe SSD. It will be called ROG Strix SQ7.
Unfortunately, the manufacturer did not provide any detailed information about the drive. It is only known that it is made in M.2 2280 format, supports PCIe 4.0 x4 interface and has a capacity of 1 TB. The presence of a thin graphene heatsink theoretically allows you to use the ROG Strix SQ7 SSD with the PlayStation 5 game console.
The company does not specify this, but it is very likely that the announcement of the new product will come as part of ASUS’ Boundless event scheduled for May 17 or during the Computex 2022 trade show, which starts on May 24.
