Peering into its crystal ball, Intel sees a future in which innovative storage products play a massive roll, both on the consumer side and especially within the enterprise and data center sectors. Related to that, Intel today outlined its Optane roadmap, including a new "Barlow Pass" Optane DC persistent memory for its Ice Lake and Cooper Lake CPUs. "The world is generating data at an accelerating rate, and businesses are increasingly becoming overwhelmed with how to efficiently process it. Harvesting value from all this data will be critical in separating the winners from losers. It will require cutting-edge innovation in the memory-and-storage hierarchy, which is what we are driving at Intel,"... Read more...
Intel has made an impressive showing in the SSD market with its Optane family, which is based on 3D XPoint memory technology. Intel makes available Optane Memory -- available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities -- that is used to cache frequently accessed data in your operating system along with Optane SSDs, which are available for consumer, enthusiast, and enterprise applications. The 3D XPoint technology that forms the basis of Optane was co-developed by Intel and Micron, and the pair have announced that a second-generation of the non-volatile, low-latency memory is currently in development. Both companies have estimated that development on second-gen 3D XPoint will be completed during the first... Read more...
Intel is on a mission re-imagine the memory and storage hierarchy, and it's attempting to do that with its 3D XPoint technology, which we have seen manifest in various Optane Memory products. Now we can add one more to the list—Intel is bringing its 3D XPoint technology to server DIMMs with the introduction of Optane DC, a type of persistent memory that will take residence in data centers. "Intel Optane DC persistent memory represents a new class of memory and storage technology architected specifically for data center usage. One that we believe fundamentally breaks through some of the constricting methods for using data that have governed computing for more than 50 years," Intel said.... Read more...
