Intel’s Optane SSD 900P featuring 3D XPoint memory have an edge over SSDs based on NAND flash when it comes to performance and promise to excel them in endurance. Meanwhile the Optane SSD 900P lineup is criticized for relatively low capacities — only 240 GB and 480 GB models are available now, which is not enough for hosting large virtual machines.

Intel's rollout of Optane products, based on 3D XPoint memory, continues. Today is the release of the 750GB Optane SSD DC P4800X, a larger capacity version of the model launched earlier this year. Now Intel's flagship enterprise SSD family has a more useful capacity while offering the same chart-topping performance as the 375GB model that launched earlier this spring.
The Intel Optane SSD 900P brings 3D XPoint memory to a consumer SSD with capacities large enough for general-purpose storage use instead of just caching. The result is a drive that breaks almost every performance record and is clearly the fastest consumer SSD. The prices are steep, but far more affordable than the enterprise drive the 900p is derived from.
As you read this, Intel is publicly discussing the first desktop SSD to utilize 3D XPoint memory technology. The Intel Optane SSD 900P isn't just a high-performance NVMe SSD. It uses the first new memory in thirty years and is blisteringly fast.
A few months ago, Intel launched Optane, the first new memory technology to hit the PC market since Toshiba released commercial flash memory over three decades ago. Intel claims this new storage medium will be more durable than flash,...Show More Summary

You've probably heard the term "optane memory" being thrown around in recent months. It's the first time that 3D Xpoint memory has been used for consumer products, but unlike its big daddy predecessor, it's far more affordable. Now thanks to Mwave, you can win yourself a bundle. More »
Intel's "Optane" memory could be the future of computing. This is why. Whether you're using a laptop or a desktop PC, it's no secret that old mechanical hard drives (HDD) are sloooooooow, at least when compared to solid state drives (SSD). Show More Summary
Now that the Intel Optane Memory M.2 SSDs are readily available on the open market, anyone with an electron microscope and the skills to use it can begin to probe the secrets of 3D XPoint memory that Intel and Micron have been keeping tightly under wraps since announcing the new technology in August 2015.

Last week, we took a look at Intel's first product based on their 3D XPoint non-volatile memory technology: the Optane SSD DC P4800X, a record-breaking flagship enterprise SSD. Today Intel launches the first consumer product under the Optane brand: the Intel Optane Memory, a far smaller device with a price that is 20 times cheaper. Show More Summary
It isn’t only the processor that makes a really cheap computer slow. Or the memory or the video card (or lack of video card). The primary reason your cheap laptop loudly chugs along at glacial speeds is because of the hard drive. Cheap laptops use cheap hard disk drives, which are much slower than the solid state… Read more...
One day 3D XPoint could change the world. But not like this it won't.
