Optane's 'black technology', decisive victory for future of data, will SSDs be upstaged?
If you want a good computer, if you want to use PS rendering, PR rendering, and access speed is fast enough when shooting large source files, then you need a large capacity SSD. drive, but capacity is so big that it's solid-state hard drive prices are growing exponentially, and it hurts me to see it.
You seem to be worried not only about rhythm of this society, but also about your computer:
Gamers Anxiety: jealous of friends who lick bag and eat chicken but can't take with them when faced with GTA 5 configuration and discouraged.
Designer concern: With Photoshop, I missed last save step and could go to work after work, but speed was desperate.
White Collar Anxiety: Seeing that my colleagues have already sorted out every case, I'm still waiting for Outlook to open.
So we can only endure such anxiety? Calm down! ! ! Intel Optane technology is also here ~ It is specifically designed to solve various problems with computer.
1. What is Optane
Most people's first reaction when it comes to Optane technology is: is it same as DDR3/DDR4 memory?
Actually, Optane technology is not what we usually think of as memory. It is equivalent to a hard disk cache. It is designed to single-sided M.2 2280 specifications, equipped with a 3DXPoint chip in a single-chip package, and manufactured using a 20nm process that is different from traditional NAND media, leading in density and power consumption.
Optane technology is currently available in two versions: one is 16G version for general users, which can run multiple common applications at same time; You can open multiple tabs in your browser at same time. . Another version is 32 GB for enthusiasts which can run multiple large scale games and multiple large data files.
Doubt: can it save memory and hard drive?
Answer: No, it cannot directly replace traditional memory, and must be used with a large capacity mechanical hard disk. For example: when it is connected with a large capacity hard disk, it can greatly reduce delay and speed up system, doing work that requires large volume and high speed of storage, and achieve a revolutionary leap. It's like SSD (system disk) + (data storage).
2. Technical Benefits of Optane
In terms of price, a 16G Optane + 1TB mechanical hard drive is only 1/5th price of a 1TB solid state hard drive, which is great value!
Doubt: If Optane technology is equivalent to high-speed SSD cache, will users buy SSDs directly?
Answer: buyers with purchasing power can directly add SSDs, but for consumers, Optane technology has an advantage that SSDs cannot replace: "cost low, low price Optane technology combined with mechanical hard drives has same performance as SSDs, but price is much cheaper than SSDs (the thought that price of SSDs has grown exponentially makes my heart flutter). The price of our 16G Optane + 1TB mechanical hard drive is only 1/5 of price of an SSD, but its performance is comparable to an SSD.Do you think it's more expensive?Effectively buy Optane technology~
3. Benefits of Optane
Optane technology reduces your cost and at same time can meet needs of users, so that users do not have to worry about latency, durability and performance loss. Tencent and HDD are combined into one drive, so it will not have any impact on system management and user habits, which greatly enhances usability and usability.
Doubt: do you have any personal experience?
Answer: Of course, let's look directly at set of test comparisons:
Optane Results comparing one high capacity hard drive with one hard drive:
*World of Tanks game loading test
Optane VS HDD: 61% reduction in time
* Photoshop Batch File Open Test
Optane VS HDD: 79% reduction in time
*Check Outlook Startup
Optane Technology VS HDD - 81%
Comparison results of two Optane and SSD+HDD drives:
* External file copy check
Optane VS SSD+HDD technology - time reduced by 1/3
*Outlook Mail Handling Test
Optane technology compared to SSD+HDD - 62% reduction in time

From benchmarks, we can see that Optane technology delivers unparalleled speed whether it's running from system or loading a game. And it has ability to intelligently learn user's daily operations, speed up user's habits, and speed up frequently used applications!
