    "Free to buy" is more appropriate to "Free to play". You buy all the Intel based stuff, then comes the DLC costs for RAID to play!

    I would pay nothing extra because if I pay a lot of money I expect to have fully functioning hardware not being placed into a pay before you play setup. Intel is trying out the same tactics the game industry does. This is very under handed and I hope people let Intel know they are pissed off about the way Intel is handling the x299 release.

    Other companies are going to watch very closely and if Intel gets away with all of this crap the industry as a whole will start using the same tactics. In the gaming industry way back all it took was for one game company to do it and get away with it then the rest followed suite. It is also pretty shitty Intel forces you to use 100% Intel SSD if you want to use that pay to play raid. I thought there were laws to protect consumers from this crap.

    To summarize this is a crap move on Intel's part they have been showing that they care very little for their customers and figure they can keep screwing us over and we won't push back. Well this long time Intel user is going to push back with my wallet and buy Threadripper this time around and I advise other to do the same. Maybe Intel will stop doing this if they lose enough market share because of low sales.

    their share holders like to make money and if the money train slows or stops you can bet they will force changes and maybe the crappy top management will be looking for work. Is get 5-15FPS extra rea,,y worth getting borked in the butt hole.

    Why don't you explain why Intel M.2s are required (hardware differences) for a bootable VROC and that Samsung works if you don't need bootability. Also, you should explain why the dongle is needed for RAID 5/10 (licensing fees)? Its easy to laugh, but I expect tech details from you guys.

    Try 2 VROC cards (Asus Hyper M.2 X16) on a i9-7900 Asus Prime X299 Deluxe MB. One bootable (requires Intel M.2 SSds because of hardware design) VROC in RAID 0 for the OS. One non-bootable (Samsung 960 Pros work in not bootable) VROC in RAID 10 (dongle required for licensing fee) for data. This leaves two M.2 slots on the MB with heatsink and fans. <30 sec boots anyone?
