Intel® Optane™ technology changes the face of computing with an unparalleled combination of speed, endurance and density. This new premium class of non-volatile memory gives users fast access to large sets of data, unleashing amazing new experiences for those who demand high performance, while maintaining high capacities.1
When it comes to memory performance, low latency is the key. Where other memory latency is measured in tens of microseconds, Intel® Optane™ technology is measured in tens of nanoseconds.
To make Intel® Optane™ technology economical, we packed lots of capacity into a tiny footprint. This includes slicing submicroscopic layers of materials into columns, each containing a memory cell and selector, and then connecting them with an innovative cross point structure of perpendicular wires.
Non-volatile memory (NVM) is the next era of computer memory, capable of retrieving stored data even after a power outage. Eliminate the moving parts of a traditional hard drive with Intel® Optane™ technology, the non-volatile memory that provides unparalleled performance, Intel quality and reliability, and power efficiency to optimize your experience across a variety of computing devices.
Intel® Optane™ memory is a new revolutionary technology that affordably accelerates your system, delivering high speed and responsiveness without compromising system storage capacity. Combined with a large-storage drive, this solution delivers high speed and capacity. Intel® Optane™ memory and a 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processor2 deliver a snappy PC experience with short boot times, fast application launches, extraordinary gaming and responsive browsing.
See 3D XPoint™ technology unveiled with a brief history of memory technology from the 1960s to now, and how this next breakthrough combines memory and storage in one non-volatile device that is more economical than DRAM and faster than NAND.
Using Moore’s Law as a guide, Intel strives to outdo current technology by supporting end-to-end solutions and designing system architecture that meets impending needs while exceeding current ones. See how innovations in Intel® SSDs are leading to a future of endless possibilities.
By stacking layers of data storage cells vertically, 3D NAND technology creates denser storage than traditional two-dimensional memory. Increasing the storage capacity brings significant cost savings, lower-power usage, reliability, speed, and overall performance.
Discover the Intel® Solid State Drive (Intel® SSD), and options for the data center, professionals, and consumers. Unlike hard disk drives, Intel SSDs feature flash memory with no moving parts for leading performance, ruggedness, and high levels of reliability.
Technology claims are based on comparisons of latency, density and write cycling metrics amongst memory technologies recorded on published specifications of in-market memory products against internal Intel specifications.
Intel® Optane™ Memory and its logo denote a platform feature made up of individual components and not solely a single small factor solid state drive or a memory media. A system that is Intel® Optane™ memory ready includes: an 7th Gen Intel® Core™ or Xeon® E3 v6 processor1, an Intel® 200 series2 or 100/C230 series3 (HM175, QM175, or CM238) chipset, M.2 type 2280-S1-B-M or 2242-S1-B-M connector on a PCH Remapped PCIe* Controller and Lanes in a x2 or x4 configuration with B-M keys that meet NVMe Spec 1.1 and System BIOS that supports the RST 15.5 driver.
