Intel/Micron 3D XPoint is officially launching on 24th April (Courtesy of Anandtech - http://www.anandtech.com/show/11227/intel-launches-optane-memory-m2-cache-ssds-for-client-market) For now, the capacities are limited to 16GB and 32GB, with read and write speeds comparable to those of SSDs. Endurance is also for now lower than what was previously announced, but better than SSDs. The technology is just starting, and we can hope that things will improve in the future (end of the year and 2018) with the release of the next products. Anandtech article says that True DIMM-based 3D XPoint memory products are on the roadmap for next year. __________________________________________________________________________________ They are also launching a Datacenter SSD, the DC P4800X 375GB capacity, 2 000 MB/s writing, 2 400 MB/s reading, endurance 30 daily rewrites or 12.3 PB rewritten datas https://www.gamespot.com/articles/intel-announces-crazy-fast-1520-optane-dc-p4800x-s/1100-6448817/ http://www.newsfactor.com/news/Inte...-Drive-Tech/story.xhtml?story_id=0010003OTWQ5 (improving both fast caching and storage) More on how it works: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/foru.../74989-intels-optane-dc-p4800x-deep-dive.html Capacities of 750 GB and 1.5 TB announced for the end of the year.
