Intel Says Their New SSD is The World's Most Responsive

It was claimed to be a whole new class of solid-state storage, offering blazing fast speeds and far superior reliability to the flash memory used in mainstream SSDs. Intel's Optane SSD DC P4800X range is aimed at enterprises and fit in PCI-Express/NVMe and U.2 slots.

When not used for that goal, the Optane SSD becomes a new tier in the memory structure, between extremely fast RAM and non-volatile storage.

For more information on the new Intel Optane P4800X storage jump over to the offiical Intel website for details by following the link below. Intel is boasting that the said storage product is highly responsive (about 8 to 40 times) under load as compared to its predecessor.

Paul Ryan: AHCA has to do more for older Americans
The GOP bill as now written offers a fixed tax credit for low- and middle-income Americans that rises based on the consumer's age. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said legislative revisions were possible to help the bill pass.

Also, the company's Optane SSD DC P4800X Series is built to drive new solutions with innovative applications such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, faster trading and deeper insights into medical scans. The devices are also expected to expand the reach of cloud computing solutions. Essentially an SSD memory on a PCIe card with a capacity of 375 GB, the one interesting aspect of which is that it can also function as a RAM as well. The former will act only as an SSD, though it would be possible to install a swapfile onto the drive in order to use it as high-speed RAM-like temporary storage or to configure it as a cache layer between DRAM and mass storage; the latter, meanwhile, will act only as pseudo-DRAM with no option to reconfigure it for storage or caching at a later date.

The solution works to integrate the drive into the memory subsystem and presents the SSD as DRAM to the OS and applications.

As for 3D XPoint, it is a non-volatile memory technology developed in collaboration between Intel and Micron back in mid-2015. All of those clearly make for breakthrough stuff that can shake up the entire computer storage segment. But, it is known to be based on some kind of change in bulk resistance to record data. Higher capacity models as well as U.2 form factor variants will follow later this year.
