Intel Releases Optane 900P SSD Series

Recommended Posts

Back in July of 2015, Intel and Micron announced their partnership on a new type of NAND technology that they initially named 3D XPoint (pronounced cross point). The new technology promised several things including a big boost in performance. About a month later Intel announced that their version of 3D XPoint would be called Optane. Intel has since slowly dripped out a few products including the Optane Memory for consumers and the Optane DC P4800X for data centers. Today marks the first time consumers can get their hands on a fully sized SSD, up to 480GB.

It's about $1.25 per GB, which is not terrible, but not exceptional either.

Is the 480GB version just a less/no overprovisioned version of the 375 GB version?
 

Going by this, it looks like the big advantage will be the high 4k Random Performance.
