Early last week, Intel revealed its Optane SSD DC P4800X featuring 3D Xpoint memory technology. The Optane SSD DC P4800X is an enterprise-class product, targeted at data centers and mission-critical applications where reliable, ultra-low-latency access to large amounts of data is paramount. Today, Intel is introducing another new product featuring 3D Xpoint memory, but this is one quite literally at the other end of the spectrum. The Intel Optane Memory devices we’ll be discussing here looks like other current generation 80mm M.2 “gumstick” type solid state drives. However, Intel Optane Memory... Read more...
When Intel and Micron jointly announced 3D Xpoint memory technology a couple of years back, the two companies made some bold claims. 3D Xpoint is being positioned as a revolutionary non-volatile memory tier that can offer orders of magnitude better performance and endurance than traditional NAND flash memory, with much higher density than DRAM. Our original coverage of the 3D Xpoint announcement is available here if you’d like a quick refresher.Today we have some news regarding the first product that Intel will ship leveraging 3D Xpoint memory technology, the brand new Intel Optane SSD DC...

If there's one downside to following the rapid progression of technology, it's that we're often stuck waiting for the next best thing to arrive. That couldn't be any more true than it is with memory and storage technologies. The number of times we've talked about "breakthroughs" in memory are too numerous to count, so when we first wrote about Intel and Micron's joint 3D XPoint memory two summers ago, we knew we'd be in for a bit of a wait. 3D XPoint (now called Optane) is soon reaching market availability, but we are still in for a long wait on Intel and Micron's promises made two years ago...

Intel hopes that its 3D XPoint technology that it developed in conjunction with Micron will lead to a new generation of ultra-fast SSDs. The new memory technology, which is being marketed under the Optane brand name, is claimed to eventually be 1000 times faster and 1000 times more reliable than traditional NAND. That’s a pretty tall order to fill, but we have it on good authority that Intel can actually deliver on its promise. After giving us an amazing demo of Optane SSDs at IDF San Francisco last year, Intel was back at again this week at IDF in Shenzhen, China. Rob Crooke, Intel SVP and GM... Read more...
After a Rube Goldberg machine did its thing and launched a few drones into the air above the crowd at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich took the stage to kick off the Intel Developers Forum with an opening keynote address."I", "D", "F" Bubble-Drones Hovering Over The CrowdDuring his keynote, Krzanich outlined three assumptions Intel is making about the future of computing. The three assumptions include the “sensification” of computing, which is a fancy way of saying computers will continue to use the senses sight, sound, and touch. The second assumption is that more...
