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.

Intel may be preparing aggressive rounds of job cuts

Intel may be preparing aggressive rounds of job cuts Earlier this month, we covered the relentless shrinking of the PC market and the departure of long-time Intel executives in Intel’s mobile segments.Much of that work has been done on Intel’s leading-edge research firm, Fab D1X, and might not be affected by the cuts.

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.
