Pro overclokker der8auer had a video up yesterday, that showed him running eight NVME drives running in RAID on a Threadripper motherboard. Since then the video has been made private.

AMD has stated that NVME RAID support would come 25th of this month, but nowhere to be seen on the official site 

Update from Hardocp:

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] “I just wanted to do a quick follow up on NVME RAID status from AMD. I know that during our Threadripper 1900X presentation we had noted September 25th as possible availability timeframe. AMD is still very excited about bringing FREE NVMe RAID support to the Threadripper platform with no strings attached,” AMD told HardOCP. Why the delay? AMD said that support for NVMe RAID requires a new driver, BIOS, management console, and installer, and that it is currently working with board partners to get all those things in order. AMD also hinted that RAID support might be a bit buggy at the moment, noting that it is “committed to software quality.” “We have been  testing its deployment and have decided to postpone the release by a few days to enhance the install experience,” AMD added.
