Intel Optane Memory
The Intel Optane Memory – the first all-new class of memory in 25 years. Intel Optane memory creates a bridge between the DRAM and storage to deliver an intelligent, amazingly responsive computing experience. Intel Optane Memory uses the latest Intel Rapid Storage Technology developed for 7th Generation Intel Core Processor based platforms. The Intel Optane Memory Module is architected with the high performance controller interface – Non Volatile Memory Express * (NVMe*) – delivering outstanding performance, low latency and quality of service.
Intelligent System Accelerator
Intel Optane memory is a smart and adaptable system accelerator that adjusts to your computing tasks making everything you do faster, smoother, easier. Its intelligent software automatically learns your computing behaviors to accelerate frequent tasks and customize your computer experience.
5x faster launching of the web browser
67% faster launching of computer games
5.8x faster launching of emails
Up to 65% of improvement in the loading speed in games
Intel Optane Memory delivers great responsiveness for your PC so you can start up quickly, search and find files up to 4x faster and save large files with virtually no lag.
Accelerated High-Capacity Storage
A high-capacity storage device, such as a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) coupled with Intel Optane memory offers the best of both worlds: high speed acceleration and affordable, large storage capacity. Consequently, Intel Optane Memory coupled with a HDD can result to similar or even better performance results in comparison to a Solid State Drive (SSD):
- 28% faster overall system performance
- 14x increased system performance for hard drive access
- 2x improvement in everyday task responsiveness
Intel Optane Memory with the innovative 3D-XPoint flash technology is offered in the form factor M.2 2280mm, a PCIe NVMe 3.0 x2 interface and available capacities of 16GB, 32GB and soon to be released 64GB. The documented figures in the table represent Intel’s obtained test results from the JESD218 test procedure, which were performed in accordance to the rules and regulations. The read and write values represent the performance result in a client workload state.
