Intel’s CEO lays out a comprehensive, cloud-based vision for the future

Intel’s CEO lays out a comprehensive, cloud-based vision for the future On Tuesday, CEO Brian Krzanich laid out his vision for the future of the CPU giant in a lengthy public memo.The data center points are fairly standard, too, though it’s not clear how serious Intel is about trying to expand this segment.

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.

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.

Intel releases specs for first Optane SSD, new drive should pack a wallop

Intel releases specs for first Optane SSD, new drive should pack a wallop Now, however, we have some idea how Optane will perform, at least in Intel’s initial data center SSD.One thing we do know, however, is that Optane can deliver excellent performance even with a queue depth of 1.

Intel Optane-branded solid-state drive for data centers spotted in leaked specs

Intel Optane-branded solid-state drive for data centers spotted in leaked specs The first Optane-branded product released by Intel may be a solid-state drive for data centers.That’s the big selling point of Optane products: The merging of the two DRAM and NAND technologies.

Intel’s Optane web page gives us more detail on the upcoming storage standard

Intel’s Optane web page gives us more detail on the upcoming storage standard Although a commercial launch date is still up in the air, this would suggest that we are edging closer to a release.Designed to have a small form-factor and be affordable, the Intel Optane Memory will come in 16GB and 32GB sizes.

Everspin unveils MRAM SSDs aimed at the storage accelerator market

Everspin unveils MRAM SSDs aimed at the storage accelerator market Intel and its 3D XPoint memory have dominated recent headlines on NAND flash alternatives, but they’ve never been the only game in town.In theory, as we’ve discussed before, MRAM could represent a so-called ‘Holy Grail’ — a non-volatile memory solution that is lower power than DRAM while offering improved performance.

Intel’s Optane DC 4800X blurs the line between RAM and solid state storage

Intel’s Optane DC 4800X blurs the line between RAM and solid state storage We’ve been hearing about Intel’s new Optane storage technology for quite some time, and the included support on Intel’s Seventh Generation Core processor line was all the confirmation we needed it was right around the corner.In a few words, Optane sits somewhere between RAM and a high-end SSD in terms of read, write, and latency.

Intel launches its first Optane SSD, the DC P4800X

Intel launches its first Optane SSD, the DC P4800X Roughly 18 months ago, Intel and Micron announced they had developed a new type of memory they dubbed 3DXPoint.Today, Intel is launching its first Optane SSD, the DC P4800X.

Intel’s Optane Memory hopes to give your aging hard disk a kick in the pants

Intel’s Optane Memory hopes to give your aging hard disk a kick in the pants While the consumer versions of the SSDs won’t be available until later this year, the chip maker has something to tide us over — Intel Optane Memory.Before Intel Optane, which is based on the 3D Xpoint technology, users had to decide between the two different types of storage device.

Intel launches Optane memory for PCs, promises cache acceleration, affordable price points

Intel launches Optane memory for PCs, promises cache acceleration, affordable price points Last week, Intel announced its new Optane drives meant for server and HPC configurations.An SSD cache drive is designed to cache the most commonly accessed data based on its analysis of the most common drive workloads and capabilities.

Close to the Metal Ep. 36: Whose Optane Memory is it anyway?

Close to the Metal Ep. 36: Whose Optane Memory is it anyway? 2 drive that acts as a caching source for your existing hard drive.At $44 for the 16GB Optane Memory, you’re almost at the cost of a 120GB SSD, which would seem to most system builders to be a preferable option.

Intel’s Optane memory sticks will require seventh-generation Core processors

Intel’s Optane memory sticks will require seventh-generation Core processors Now, it appears that Optane requires Intel Core processors specifically, making their requirements a bit more specific, as the Tech Report points out.More: Intel’s Optane Memory hopes to give your aging hard disk a kick in the pants The specific reference can be found on Intel’s own Optane site, which lists the CPUs and chipsets that will be required to utilize Optane memory.

Asus BIOS update adds Intel Optane support to 35 motherboards

Asus BIOS update adds Intel Optane support to 35 motherboards All of the boards are based on the 200 series chipset, with everything from the high-end Z270s, through H270 and B250 boards all now able to add an Intel Optane drive to their M.With only a few tens of gigabytes of space though, it isn’t designed to work like your average Solid State Drive (SSD) or hard drive, but as a caching drive for either of those storage form factors.

Intel's About To Shakeup Computing - Again

Intel's About To Shakeup Computing - Again A chip that’s many, many times faster than any SSD.For some time now, computers have basically had main types of storage: volatile (short-term) and non-volatile (long-term).

Intel’s cutting-edge Optane Memory may one day replace your RAM, but not today

Intel’s cutting-edge Optane Memory may one day replace your RAM, but not today Instead of shipping an Optane Memory drive for home use, the company is selling a cache drive available in 16GB of 32GB capacities.A drop-in Optane Memory cache drive would be an awesome solution for old PCs that already have a hard disk.

Intel Optane Review Roundup: Next-Generation Memory Standard Earns Lukewarm Reception

Intel Optane Review Roundup: Next-Generation Memory Standard Earns Lukewarm Reception After years of teasing and a major enterprise launch, Intel’s Optane memory is finally available for PCs and enthusiast systems.This isn’t a new feature from Intel; SRT has been supported on small SSD cache drives for at least five years, and Intel’s Optane drives appear to offer commensurate benefits to an SSD cache drive when used in an equivalent configuration.
