Why Did Intel Even Make This? – Optane 800P SSD
   Linus Tech Tips
  Published: 3 months ago


We all know by now Optane is fast… But can Intel’s latest SSD FINALLY bring Optane into the home? Or is it just half-baked and overpriced?

Wouldnt the new Optane be good for Star Citizen. Running on the faster connection along with its incredible latency would make running a game like Star Citizen much smoother than it currently is.

I would like EVERYONE gives likes to my comment to He makes a video doing THIS!!!: I'd like you make a video making a [RAID O] on the ASUS' HYPER M.2 X16 CARD with [4 OPTANE 905P or 4 OPTANE 900P] so that we can see the new MAXIMUM speed today compared to the video that you did using 4Samsung 960, I'd really like to see that!!!! and I bet everyone in This channel TOO!!!!!!!.. AND is a good promotion and marketing to INTEL..INTEL can also support the cause and vice versa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [I feel really interested in watch Random 4k Read and write in CrystalDiskMark!!!! ]

The Thermaltake p90 is not a good table and a weird tower.

I guess Intel expects you to install you software on drive D

The key point is using the 800P as a boot drive and simultaneously it will boost your storage drive so in essence you will have a solid boot drive and also a huge storage drive turbo charger such as a 4TB hard drive. Is everyone just missing the point of this drive lol. its the best of both world.

If this comes in 250 and 500gb variants then this would be great. But not at 100gb

I like how the entire video you are basically bitching about something that is, in reality, better than previous types of memory and has a real performance boost. Then you go on to advertise some fucking retarded modern art glass case thing that is utterly useless and probably overpriced as fuck. At least optane actually does something, lol.

Hi there,
I'm AJ..
i have a lenovo ideapad 320s 14IKB (80X4) which came with an i3 7100u, 4gig ram, 1TB hdd. i bought it as my secondary college notebook. But unfortunately its performance isn't upto my expectations! So i thought of doing an upgrade. But I'm confused about what to upgrade. since I am on a budget I only have the option of either a 8gb stick of ddr4 sodimm or an ssd (hopefully it supports m.2 nvme). which should i do?
Or should i Go for an intel optane memory?
please do reply.

Linus, would it be better to go with the Optane 32GB and a regular 2 - 4 GB HD as a primary drive?

Can I build one PC with two motherboard s

maybe Realtime Systems that use the optane as additional Memory and don´t want latency because it might kill the real time aspect. through then again if they have PCIe *2 on the board they likely will just be able to insert more RAM / aren´t hard Realtime Systems :/

I heard that use hdd+intel optane help improve read speed, is this right?

Yeah its probably just for people who can afford it

Uhm. are those flash chips, or the new intel memristor-based chips which they now (few months later) introduced as a permanent DIMM memory, which would not go blank after power outage? The server solution so far.

So i would consider this to be just a proof of concept.

That's what Intel Rapid Technology was made for. Genius smh
