Samsung finally has a launch vehicle for its high-performance Z-NAND memory. Z-NAND, which is a supercharged variant of existing 3D NAND technology, is widely viewed as Samsung's credible alternative to Intel's 3D XPoint Optane memory technology (see our recent reviews). The company today launched the SZ985... Read more...
When we reviewed Intel's Optane SSD 900P series back in mid-November, we came away wholly impressed with the storage device. Based on Intel 3D Xpoint memory technology, the Optane SSD 900P series delivers incredible overall performance compared to NAND-based NVMe solid state drive rivals. One of the biggest... Read more...
Intel is really cranking up the heat when it comes to products based on its 3D Xpoint memory technology. The commercial name of this tech, however, is Optane, and we've seen retail releases in the form of the Optane SSD DC P4800X enterprise drive, which is available in a 375GB capacity, and the Optane SSD 900P...

We have been hearing a lot about 3D XPoint memory (now called Optane) over the past couple of years, and more recently we have seen some related products emerge, including a PCIe-based solid state drive for enterprise clients, the Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X. Intel today is following that up with the Optane SSD... Read more...
The PCI standards group PCI-SIG (Special Interest Group) comprised of AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, and other technology bigwigs announced it has finalized the specifications for the PCI Express 4.0 standard. It has previously announced in June at the group's DevCon event that the spec was feature complete and undergoing... Read more...
Remember the name Crossbar, in case you are not already familiar with the firm. Founded in 2010, Crossbar has designed a ReRAM (resistive random-access memory) solution that could give Intel and its 3D XPoint technology developed in collaboration with Micron a run for their money. Crossbar's implementation is... Read more...
There is a big push for solid state drive (SSDs) to transform the data center storage market, and Intel is banking on a new form-factor to help spur that transition. The company has announced its new Ruler SSD form-factor, which completely ditches legacy 2.5- and 3.5-inch formats. These long and skinny SSDs are... Read more...
AMD is looking to take the enthusiast gaming PC market by storm with its upcoming Ryzen Threadripper family, and Dell is apparently more than happy to embrace the new many-core processors. Today at E3, Dell announced the new Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition, which as its name implies, is backed by AMDs... Read more...
Enthusiast system builders have a lot to be excited about this summer. New high-end CPUs and GPUs are on the horizon and it doesn't even matter where your allegiance liesIntel, AMD, and NVIDIA have all announced some exciting new products. For Intel, the big news is its Core i9 line of processors. In preparation for... Read more...
Weve heard rumors regarding Intels upcoming Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X processors for the past few months, but today it's finally time for the official roll-out of these new flagship Intel CPUs. We were no doubt impressed by the initial specs that leaked (especially over the past week), but the final product may... Read more...
Intel Optane Memory is designed to accelerate the storage subsystem on compatible machines, to improve transfer speeds and reduce latency. It is among the first products to leverage 3D XPoint memory technology that was co-developed by Intel and Micron. 3D XPoint offers many of the same... Read more...
When Intel unveiled its Optane memory solution this week, it seemed like an ideal performance pick-me-up for low-end rigs. Its goal is to cache all of your important bits so as to make the PC more responsive, and quicker in general. The fact that Intel itself promotes the current Optane solution at those using...

Intel on Monday announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to purchase Mobileye, an Israeli technology company that develops vision-based advanced driver assistance systems providing warnings for collision prevention and mitigation. Combined with Intel's high performance computing solutions and expertise in... Read more...
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 memoryand storage technologies. The number of times we've talked about "breakthroughs" in memory are too numerous to count, so... Read more...
Intel is releasing a new line of "Next Unit of Computing" (NUC) devices built around its newly launched desktop Kaby Lake processor family unveiled at CES. While not a monumental leap over Skylake, Intel's Kaby Lake architecture brings with it a handful of architecture improvements and better integrated graphics, both... Read more...
If you notice that solid state drives are getting more expensive, blame smartphones, at least in part. Smartphone makers are drying up the supply of NAND flash memory chips and to make matters worse, the transition from 2D NAND to 3D NAND manufacturing is putting added strain on how the overall output of chips. There... Read more...
Intel has been relatively quiet on the solid state drive (SSD) front lately, though the company has likely been devoting a lot time and resources to its upcoming 3D XPoint storage architecture. However today, the company has unleashed a flood of new SSD products that cover a broad spectrum of usage... Read more...
One week ago, Intel took the drastic step of laying off 12,000 employees, representing 11 percent of the companys workforce by mid-2017.
