System: ASUS ROG Strix Z690-I, i9-12900K, 2x Samsung 980 PRO M.2. Windows 11.
The MB should support M.2 gen 4 PCIe.
However, when setting up storage system in RAID 0 (via RST), I do not get more than ~7000/7000 read/write. This is the same as AHCI configuration with the two 980 PRO individually.

Windows drivers should be installed correctly, I guess.

The guide to setup the RAID is directly from the MB manual which link to this: https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/13MANUAL/RAID_Configuration_Guide_V2-EN.pdf

Any ideas?

No.

Done exactly right, a RAID 0 may, I repeat may, show great benchmark numbers.
In actual user facing benefit? Nada.

Here's a couple of older tests with RAID 0 and solid state drives.

tl-dr....No actual benefit at all.

What you DO get is increased complexity and fail potential.
Well okay, thanks. I will listen to you and delete the Raid volume instant :)

As with many things, what sounds like a good idea is not actually a good idea.
In the consumer space, RAID 0 is one of those things.
I just remember on my laptop 10 years ago it felt pretty efficient. I guess this effect has diluted out nowadays?

FWIW - If you haven't figured it out yet - my guess is that one of your M.2 slots goes to your CPU, and the other slot has to go through your Northbridge.
