Intel Optane storage was arguably way too in advance of its time, with 3D XPoint memory that was unbelievably speedy but considerably way too restricted in storage capacity. Now, at CES 2019, Intel may have solved this bugbear with its most up-to-date Optane Memory H10 module.
This seemingly usual M.two SSD generate pictured combines a small amount of Intel Optane memory with a massive dollop of QLC 3D NAND storage.
There are presently three versions of Intel’s Optane Memory H10: 16GB (Optane) + 256GB (QLC) 32GB (Optane) +512GB (QLC) and 32GB (Optane) + 1TB (QLC).
With this form of mash up, the Intel Optane Memory H10 module correctly offers you the finest of both equally worlds, with particularly speedy Optane memory possessing adequate capacity for far more than just your operating program.
Intel tells us that, in most OEM prebuilt devices and laptops, the Intel Optane Memory H10 will be preconfigured to search like a single gadget.
Builders, on the other hand, may see the unit as two distinctive storage drives but, when enabled, the Intel Optane Memory driver and Intel Fast Storage Technology Driver will combine the two drives and existing the Intel Optane Memory H10 as a single storage gadget in your Computer system.
We have have asked for for remark from Intel on regardless of whether the Optane Memory crafted within the generate can also be employed to pace up spinning difficult drives, and will update this story as quickly as we know far more.
