Intel® Optane™ technology is revolutionizing the world of memory and storage. It provides an unparalleled combination of high throughput, low latency, high quality of service, high endurance and also much faster read and write speeds than even the fastest SSD can match, without RAM’s constant power requirement.
A unique combination of 3D XPoint™ memory media, Intel Memory and Storage Controllers, Intel Interconnect IP and Intel® software, Optane delivers a revolutionary leap forward in decreasing latency and accelerating systems for workloads demanding large capacity and fast storage. Intel® Optane™ memory changes everything, it is a smart, adaptable system accelerator for PCs with a 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and a hard disk drive, providing provides uncompromising system responsiveness for large capacity storage drives, making everything you do fast, smooth and easy. Intel® Optane™ Solid State Drives are built purely for consumers and add workstation class performance and industry-leading endurance to your computing system. They set the precedent for high-performance desktops and workstations, empowering professional users, creators, and enthusiasts to do more. Intel® Optane™ technology for data centre solutions accelerate applications for fast caching and storage, reduce transaction costs for latency-sensitive workloads and increase scale per server, allowing data centres to deploy bigger and more affordable datasets to gain new insights from large memory pools.
Using Intel® Optane™ technology, retailers might more quickly identify fraud detection patterns, financial institutions may speed trading, and healthcare researchers could work with even larger data sets in real-time. It can optimize PC experiences from interactive social media to immersive gaming for home users. The University of Pisa uses Intel® Optane™ SSDs as memory and they have been able to reduce MRI exam times from forty minutes to two!
