Intel demos 3D XPoint, showcases Optane’s 2GB/s performance

Intel demos 3D XPoint, showcases Optane’s 2GB/s performance This new memory, 3D XPoint (pronounced “crosspoint”) is a non-volatile memory that Intel is advertising as the first major memory breakthrough in 25 years.Early speculation was that 3D XPoint would be based or at least related-to phase change memory, but Intel has denied that this is the case without specifying the exact details of how Optane actually works.

Micron confirms GDDR5X now in mass production

Micron confirms GDDR5X now in mass production This announcement might seem a bit anticlimactic now that Nvidia has already stated that the GeForce GTX 1080 will use GDDR5X RAM, but Micron has announced that GDDR5X is now in mainstream production, months ahead of its originally expected schedule.One interesting thing about the GTX 1080 is that the RAM it uses is at the lower-end of the memory Micron said it could ship.

IBM researchers announce major breakthrough in phase change memory

IBM researchers announce major breakthrough in phase change memory One of the more promising technologies that’s been in development is phase-change memory, or PCM.That’s a significant achievement, given that previous work in the field was limited to a single bit of data per memory cell.

Seagate unveils the world’s largest SSD: 60TB

Seagate unveils the world’s largest SSD: 60TB The 60TB SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) SSD is intended for large-scale enterprise data centers that need maximum storage and compute performance.With just 17 of these drives, you can hit 1PB of storage; Seagate says it’s ideal for large local or cloud-based storage arrays, active archives, online video, and read-intensive environments.

First Intel Optane hardware could be coming to consumer desktops

First Intel Optane hardware could be coming to consumer desktops Ever since Intel announced its 3D XPoint storage (brand name: Optane), there’s been interest from the enthusiast market.Micron expects its version of 3D XPoint, dubbed QuantX, to sell for about half the price of DRAM, but 4-5x more than NAND flash.

Micron launches reconfigurable 5100 Series enterprise SSDs sporting 3D TLC NAND

Micron launches reconfigurable 5100 Series enterprise SSDs sporting 3D TLC NAND Typically, enterprise and many consumer drives are based on multi-level cell (MLC) NAND, which stores two bits of information per cell.What makes Micron’s drives different is that the company is using 3D NAND flash instead of traditional 2D (planar) NAND.
