Intel® Optane™ technology is a premium non-volatile memory media that changes the face of computing with an unparalleled combination of speed, endurance and density – all at a competitive price.1
With Intel® Optane™ technology you can unleash the power of your processor instead of it working at a fraction of its power. Eliminating that bottleneck requires better storage memory that is fast, inexpensive, and non-volatile. Intel Optane technology has the potential to revolutionize big data, high-performance computing, virtualization, storage, cloud, gaming, and many other applications.
When it comes to memory performance, low latency is the key. Where other memory latency is measured in tens of microseconds, Intel® Optane™ technology is measured in tens of nanoseconds.
To make Intel® Optane™ technology economical, we packed lots of capacity into a tiny footprint. By slicing submicroscopic layers of materials into columns each containing a memory cell and selector, then connecting them with an innovative cross point structure of perpendicular wires.
Non-volatile memory (NVM) is the next era of computer memory, capable of retrieving stored data even after a power outage. Eliminate the moving parts of a traditional hard drive with Intel® Optane™ technology, the non-volatile memory that provides unparalleled performance, Intel quality and reliability, and power efficiency to optimize your experience across a variety of computing devices.
See 3D XPoint™ technology unveiled with a brief history of memory technology from the 1960s to now, and how this next breakthrough combines memory and storage in one non-volatile device that is more economical than DRAM and faster than NAND.
Using Moore’s Law as a guide, Intel strives to outdo current technology by supporting end-to-end solutions and designing system architecture that meets impending needs while exceeding current ones. See how innovations in Intel® SSDs are leading to a future of endless possibilities.
By stacking layers of data storage cells vertically, 3D NAND technology creates denser storage than traditional two-dimensional memory. Increasing the storage capacity brings significant cost savings, lower-power usage, reliability, speed, and overall performance.
Discover the Intel® Solid State Drive (Intel® SSD), and options for the data center, professionals, and consumers. Unlike hard disk drives, Intel SSDs feature flash memory with no moving parts for leading performance, ruggedness, and high levels of reliability.
Technology claims are based on comparisons of latency, density and write cycling metrics amongst memory technologies recorded on published specifications of in-market memory products against internal Intel specifications.
