Breakthrough Responsiveness. Intelligent Acceleration.

Key Benefits

  • Amazing Responsiveness

  • Intelligent System Acceleration

  • Affordable Speed with Large Storage

  • Trusted Reliability


Acceleration and responsiveness help you work, create, and play faster.

Intel® Optane™ memory is a smart technology that accelerates computers’responsiveness in 7th Gen or later Intel® Core™ processor family. Available in multiple capacity options in an M.2 form factor, Intel® Optane™ memory accelerates your mobile or desktop system—delivering amazing speed and responsiveness without compromising system storage capacity. Together, Intel® Optane™ memory and an Intel® Core™ processor accelerate your computer experience with short boot times, fast application launches, and extraordinary gaming and browsing. Now you can combine a high capacity storage device with Intel® Optane™ memory to keep up with your most demanding applications.

Amazing Responsiveness
Built on the revolutionary Intel® Optane™ media that offers the unique combination of high throughput and low latency, Intel® Optane™ memory optimizes your computer’s responsiveness. Pair Intel® Optane™ memory with your existing hard disk drive (HDD) or slower SATA storage device for an SSD-like response from your accelerated boot or data drive. Get more done at maximum speed from an accelerated HDD—boot, access storage, launch applications, fnd, and save large fles in a flash.

Intelligent System Acceleration
With the intelligent Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) driver working behind the scenes, Intel® Optane™ memory recognizes and remembers content needed for important and recurring tasks, providing faster access to your frequently used fles, applications, and games. Furthermore, as your computing habits change over time, Intel® Optane™ memory will adapt to enable a responsive accelerated experience for what you use most often.

Affordable Speed with Large Storage
Store all your large fles locally on a “mega storage” device and open them quickly. Intel® Optane™ memory delivers high-speed acceleration without compromising system storage capacity. A large capacity storage device coupled with Intel® Optane™ memory affordably delivers the best of both worlds.

Trusted Reliability
Created by Intel, one of the industry’s most trusted technology innovators, this new class of non-volatile memory is backed by over 30 years of memory expertise and global leadership in technology innovation and processor manufacturing. Consistently reliable Intel® Optane™ memory and a 5-year warranty minimizes down time, giving you more work and play time.
