Intel announced its Optane Memory H10 back during the Consumer Electronics Show, early this year. Just in case you missed the initial announcement, the company's Optane Memory H10 is a new class of products from Intel that combines 3D Xpoint memory technology and QLC (quad-level cell) 3D NAND flash on a single M.2 device. The goal for the product is to offer the benefits of 3D Xpoint and Optane Memory in conjunction with the affordability and speed of a QLC-based NVMe SSD in a single device. Initially, these hybrid drives will find their way into utlrabooks or small form factor systems that may not have the accommodations for multiple drives. 3D Xpoint and NAND flash memory can both be used for...

Intel today is providing hard specs for what it is calling next-generation of Optane memory that has been specifically optimized for thin and light notebooks. Enter Optane Memory H10, which is a new PCIe 3.0x4 NVMe-based 2-in-1 storage “gum stick” that combines Intel’s ultra-fast Optane memory with the company’s QLC 3D NAND. By combining the best of both worlds into a single M.2 single-sided form-factor, customers will be able to take advantage of faster system responsiveness as afforded by Optane Memory caching, while leveraging the value-driven dynamics and capaciousness of Intel’s QLC SSDs. The key breakthrough is to be able to fit all of these components... Read more...
Intel has been pushing its Optane memory solutions as speedy supplements to traditional storage, be it a mechanical hard drive or a solid state drive—on supported systems, an Optane memory stick can supercharge the primary storage scheme. That's still a use case scenario, though looking ahead, Intel announced another Optane product, the Optane Memory H10 with solid state storage. The new Optane Memory H10 is a storage drive in the M.2 form factor. It combines Intel's Optane memory with quad-level cell (QLC) 3D NAND flash memory into a single product. The concept is essentially the same as adding an Optane memory stick to a system to boost storage performance, except the H10 is basically... Read more...
