Intel Optane 900P vs Samsung 950 PRO

Recommended Posts

That's impossible to say without knowing if your current tasks are disk I/O bound or not.

If they are, then you might. If they're not, then you won't.

Keep in mind that Optane appears to have its main benefits at very low I/O loads over conventional SSDs.

 

If you want a more facetious answer: if you have to ask, the answer is no.

I think that same. My tasks are not I/O bound but the interesting thing is that Intel is advertising optane as something good for players.

How this could be good for players? Are games I/O bound?

IIRC early reviews for gaming (are there any?) would probably show no difference. I highly doubt Star Citizen would at this stage in its development, it smells like pure, 100% marketing.

 

That may change-- a big issue now is that lots of software is coded expecting to have to deal with a harddisk for storage, so they design for high latency. In a future world where developers can assume everyone has a SSD, they can presumably expect less latency and hence design as such.
