Intel believes that this new storage technology will drive new solutions with applications such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, faster trading, and deeper insights into medical scans.

When not used for that objective, the Optane SSD becomes a new tier in the memory structure, between extremely fast RAM and non-volatile storage.

Intel has this week unveiled its new and very first Optane solid state drive (SSD) which comes equipped with 3D XPoint memory and specifically designed for enterprise applications. It often refers to Optane as "a storage solution that behaves like system memory". DRAM is too expensive to scale while NAND can scale but falls short in terms of datacenter performance.

Intel's Optane SSDs are built to offer performance at low queue depth, with the majority of applications delivered to generate storage workloads enabling CPUs are more active and utilised.

Faster caching and storage are also said to boost scaling for individual servers while speeding up latency-sensitive workloads, the company said Monday (March 20). Memory Drive manages this combined storage pool and allocates data to the physical RAM or Optane SSD automatically and transparently. Typical latency is rated at less than 10 microseconds. Its affordability means that Intel Optane SSDs are likely to displace some DRAM in servers.

Last April, Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) demonstrated Optane SSDs operating at 2 Gb/sec speeds. What do you guys think of Intel's new 3D XPoint SSD? As the drive has been found to be responsive under any load, it is highly predictable and delivers a consistent ultra-fast service, according to Intel. The exact specifications of how the memory works haven't been made clear by the chipmaker. The chipmaker had then gone to town trumpeting the insane capabilities of the new memory which Intel claimed is about a 1,000 times faster than any modern SSD. "The longer it takes to get to that data, the slower the computing...." This type of memory does not feature transistors and does not trap electrons to store data.
