S/PDIF is an interface used to transmit digital audio with high fidelity.

Storage

1.Supports RAID 1
Asus Maximus V Extreme
MSI B250M Gaming Pro

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 1 mirrors the data across the drives. This gives you greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another.

2.Supports RAID 5
Asus Maximus V Extreme
MSI B250M Gaming Pro

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 5 stripes the data across the drives, giving increased performance compared to a single disk. It also provides greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another due to the use of parity.

3.Supports RAID 0
Asus Maximus V Extreme
MSI B250M Gaming Pro

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 0 stripes the data across the drives, giving increased performance and capacity compared to a single drive. The drawback is that if one drive fails, you lose the data on all drives.

4.Supports RAID 10 (1+0)
Asus Maximus V Extreme
MSI B250M Gaming Pro

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 10 (1+0) stripes and mirrors the data across the drives. It gives increased capacity and performance compared to a single disk. It also provides greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another.

5.Supports RAID 0+1
Asus Maximus V Extreme
MSI B250M Gaming Pro

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 0+1 stripes and mirrors the data across the drives. This gives increased capacity and performance compared to a single disk. It also provides greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another.
