Intel demonstrates Optane-speed SSD with up to 2GB / s




Intel at the Intel Developer Forum in China a prototype Optane-SSD shown, which uses 3D XPOINT storage technology. During a demonstration of 25Gb file was copied in just under fifteen seconds.

Intel logo (60 pix) 3D XPOINT technology was announced in July 2015 with the expectation that this a thousand times faster than would be conventional NAND memory, which is present in SSD’s. This year, the first SSDs will be available in the Optane series, but said Intel still need the model used for the demonstration is an early prototype.

In the test arrangement, use was made of two identical computers, to which two different SSDs were linked during the presentation. attached to the left was a model with SSD NAND flash memory and on the right a PC Optane-SSD. In both cases concerned an internal model with the same external model is connected through a Thunderbolt 3 connection.

In the transfer between the NAND SSDs can be seen that the rate amounts to an average of 280MB / s. The transfer between the Optane-SSDs proceeds so to see a much more stable, with a rate of about 1,95GB / s. The transfer is in the video shown below. At a demonstration in August the performance gain was still around a fivefold to sevenfold speed. The full Intel presentation via a stream view.
