Super Fast Intel Optane SSDs To Work With AMD Powered PCs
The Intel Optane SSDs will not be limited to PCs that are powered by Intel chips. That is not the case. Intel does not want to limit the use of the Intel Optane SSDs and AMD powered PCs could be getting Intel Optane SSD compatibility as well. Why does Intel want to do this? Because the company wants the adoption of Intel Optane SSDs to be easier for PC makers.
Intel Optane SSDs are new to the market and they are faster than regular SSDs. These Intel Optane SSDs will allow PCs to run faster and will enable faster data transfers in servers. These new SSDs feature the new 3D XPoint technology which Intel claims is 10 times faster than flash storage or DRAM.
Intel and Facebook have been testing these new SSDs and both confirm that they are faster. One way of looking at it is that Intel Optane SSDs are backwards compatible just like when SSDs first came out and they were plugged into hard drive sockets.
While that continues, SSDs that support the NVMe protocol — a storage protocol based on PCI Express — are being slotted into faster PCI Express 3.0 slots.
Data storage requirements are increasing day after day and we need faster memory solutions to store and transfer data at a rapid pace. These new SSDs will play a huge role not only in servers but in gaming as well.
The gaming experience will be “amazingly fast.”
Faster storage and transfers mean faster OS booting and reduced waiting time during loading screens in-game. Loading screens break immersion so this SSD could be used to minimize that as much as possible.
Intel Optane SSDs will be available at the end of the year for servers and high-end PCs. What do you think about these new SSDs? Would you like to have one?
