Silicon Image, a developer of semiconductors, and ASUSTeK Computer, a provider of motherboards, have introduced seven new ASUS P5Q series channel motherboards.
The motherboards are incorporated with Silicon Image’s SteelVine SiI5723 SATA storage processor and the new ASUS Drive Xpert, a management utility software jointly developed by Silicon Image and ASUS.
The ASUS motherboards support storage with Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) modes enabled by the Silicon Image SteelVine storage processor.

The joint development of the ASUS Drive Xpert continues the successful collaboration between Silicon Image and ASUS.
