Intel Optane memory, which combines the speed of DRAM with the persistence of a solid-state drive (SSD), is now available in a form factor that works for ultra-slim notebooks, all-in-one PCs and mini-PCs.
Intel this week introduced the new part, the Intel Optane memory H10 with solid-state storage. This new product combines the responsiveness of low-latency Intel Optane memory with the storage capacity of high-density Intel Quad Level Cell (QLC) 3D NAND tech.
This combination eliminates the need for a secondary storage device. And to fit in tight spaces, the new Optane part comes in a single M.2 form factor with a standard PCIe with NVMe interface. It weighs less than 10 grams (about 1/3 oz.).
Intel Optane memory H10 with SSD
PCs based on 8th gen Core mobile platforms and equipped with Intel Optane memory H10 with SSD will be coming from OEMs starting this quarter, Intel says. Those suppliers include Acer, ASUS, Dell and HP.
Compared with older systems, PCs equipped with Intel Optane memory H10 with SSD will launch docs up to 2x faster, launch games 60% faster while multitasking, and open media files up to 90% faster while multitasking, according to Intel.
The new Intel Optane memory H10 with SSD is being offered in 3 configurations:
> 16GB Optane + 258GB storage
> 32GB Optane + 512GB storage
> 32GB Optane + 1TB storage
One important feature on the new components is Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST). Working behind the scenes, it enables Intel Optane memory H10 to first recognize and “remember” content needed for important and frequent tasks, then quickly accelerates them for use. This gives users faster access to their most frequently used data.
Also, Intel RST can adapt to changes in the user’s computing habits over time. This ensures that users’ most frequently accessed data and apps are accelerated and responsive.
To run Intel Optane memory H10 with SSD, a PC will need to be based on either an 8th or 9th gen Intel Core processor and run 64-bit Windows 10.
If your customers could benefit from a drive that combines the speed of DRAM with the capacity of SSD, and on a small form factor, then check out the Intel Optane memory H10.
