Intel today announced a new product that joins the Intel Optane family, the Intel Optane 800P. This new SSD has been designed by professional users with Optane memory technology, which allows faster storage as HDD and SATA SSD. Intel Optane technology achieves high performance, low latency, and great service.
Thanks to its really low latency and high speeds, with this SSD we will be able to start our system and applications very quickly, as well as manage the multitasking of our system in a fluid way. This new Optane is ideal to be used as another SSD, in a configuration with two storage devices, in which case it would boost the access time of the other device, or by applying RAID. Its low working voltage makes it possible to see it in portable devices. The reduction of the queues in the random input/output instructions ensures a better performance of our system since they are the most common instructions in our PCs.
With this new Intel SSD, it aims to reach our computers, with an SSD designed for the standard user, which will provide an unthinkable speed in our computers thanks to its Octane technology. This new storage device has 3D Xpoint memories inside, getting the 250000 in reading IOPS and 140000 in writing IOPS.
The high speeds of this device are 1450 MB / s and 640 MB / s. Regarding the duration of this SSD, we find 365 TBW, which gives more than enough for a normal use of the device. With that TBW you could write 20 GB daily for 50 years. If you choose to RAID your Intel Optane memories, you would get a performance increase of 155%.
Can Intel Optane be the future of SSDs?
The new Intel Optane 800P is available in the capacities of 58 GB, 118 GB in the form factor M.2 2280 and the interface NVMe PCIe 3.0 x 2. The sale price of these units will be 129 dollars for the 58 GB and $ 199 for the 118 GB. They are high prices, but they correspond with the minimum latency and very high speed of these devices.
Intel is trying to revolutionize the memory market, if it already surprised at the time with the release of the memory Optane, a technology that depended on another memory to make it work much faster, now with the new Octane and its incredible times may be become the standard of an increasingly closer future.
