Intel combines Optane with storage capacity of QLC 3D NAND
Combining the responsiveness of Intel Optane technology with the storage capacity of Intel Quad Level Cell (QLC) 3D NAND technology, the Intel Optane memory H10 with solid state storage makes the memory offering applicable to thin and light notebooks and space constrained desktop applications.
Intel Optane memory H10 with solid-state storage in an M.2 form factor is an example of Intel’s disruptive approach to memory and storage, says the company.
The Intel Optane memory H10 with solid state storage offers a higher level of performance not met by traditional Triple Level Cell (TLC) 3D NAND SSDs today, says Intel and it eliminates the need for a secondary storage device.
The combination of high-speed acceleration and large SSD storage capacity on a single drive will benefit everyday computer users, whether they use their systems to create, game or work. Compared to a standalone TLC 3D NAND SSD system, Intel Optane memory H10 with solid-state storage enables both faster access to frequently used applications and files and better responsiveness with background activity, explains the company.
8th Generation Intel Core U-series mobile platforms featuring Intel Optane memory H10 with solid state storage will allow OEMs to offer everyday users the ability to launch documents up to twice as fast while multi-tasking. They will also be able to launch games 60 per cent faster while multi-tasking and open media files up to 90 per cent faster while multi-tasking.
SSDs with Intel Optane memory are the fastest compared to NAND SSDs in the majority of common client use cases, reports Intel. Intel-based platforms with Intel Optane memory adapt to everyday computing activities to optimise the performance for the user’s most common tasks and frequently used applications. Intel Optane memory H10 with solid state storage offers up to 1Tbyte of total storage.
The Intel Optane memory H10 with solid-state storage will come in the following capacities, 16Gbyte (Intel Optane memory) + 256Gbyte (storage); 32Gbyte (Intel Optane memory) + 512Gbyte (storage); and 32Gbyte (Intel Optane memory) + 1Tbyte storage.
Dell, HP, ASUS and Acer will be among the first to offer the Intel Optane memory H10 with solid state storage.
