Intel has bumped up the capacity on its well-regarded Optane SSD 905P family. Intel's Optane SSDs for enthusiasts offer a compelling performance upgrade over run-of-the-mill SATA storage devices and can offer some significant advantages over NVMe SSD (in certain aspects), but they do come with an added cost. The company announced that its Optane 905P half height PCIe x4 add-in card (AIC) has jumped in maximum capacity from 960GB to 1.5TB. Likewise, the 2.5-inch U.2 version of the Optane 905P is also available in two larger SKUs: 960GB and 1.5TB. For those that don't need as much space, there are still 960GB AIC and 480GB/280GB U.2 SKUs available for customers. While Intel has announced... Read more...
Intel is upping the ante in the enthusiast storage space again, with a brand-new 3D Xpoint-based drive called the Optane SSD 905P. As its name implies, the Optane SSD 905P isn’t a major departure from the Optane SSD 900P that was released a few month back, but Intel was worked a bit of magic to improve performance in a few ways.

Intel just announced the availability of its Optane SSD 905P, which is in essence a higher performance version of the Optane SSD 900P we reviewed here not long ago. There are two SKUs being launched today, and they fall within Intel's Mansion Beach family of storage products. There will be a 960GB SKU priced at $1,299, while a smaller capacity 480GB SKU rings in at $599. The high-end Optane SSD 905P 960GB is available in a Half Height Half Length (HHHL) PCIe add-in form-factor. On the other hand, the Optane SSD 905P 480GB is only available in a 2.5-inch form-factor with U.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 interface. And as you might expect, both SSDs employ Intel 3D XPoint memory technology...
