If you want to lump their software RAID into fake RAID will you call most of Intel's RAID fake too? You should along with Microsoft's software RAID, Linux software RAID and so on.
I haven't run into true hardware RAID cards for over a decade now.
I am posting this so you don't fall victim to ASUS's false specifications. I purchased an ASUS TUF X470-PLUS GAMING Motherboard for my new PC build because ASUS claims it has RAID 10 which is a lie! I intended to install my O.S. on the RAID 10 which it would boot from. What it has is ASUS will offer you a useless piece of garbage software FAKE RAID that your O.S. can't see the RAID array. ASUS support has complete idiots that it took 6 different phone calls to tell me it's a software RAID. My 2 previous computer builds had ASUS motherboards with hardware RAID. It looks like ASUS has cheeped out by offering a FAKE RAID that is not on the motherboard.
