For now, they are only available on mounted equipment. Intel continues to explore ways to deploy its XPoint 3D memory, also known as Optane, and its new product is an SSD that combines this technology with NLC 3D QLC memory chips in the M.2 format: “Intel Optane H10 memory, with storage Solid state, combines Intel’s Optane technology and the Intel 3D QLC NAND, reflecting our way of viewing storage to deliver the best performance on Intel’s connected platforms. ” This is what Rob Crooke, of Intel, has said in the published press release.
What Intel gets with its new units is to get Optane to laptops or other equipment without much space, such as all-in-one computers or mini PCs. The bad thing is that because of this we are not going to see them arrive independently – for now. Curious that is so, especially with an Intel that tries to praise the benefits of their units compared to the most popular FTA. The company claims that the Optane H10 allows faster access to frequent applications and a greater system response compared to TLC.
Obviously, there is no price relationship, but we do have references of the varieties of memories: 16 GB of Optane + 256 GB of SSD, 32 GB + 512 GB and 32 GB + 1 TB. However, you can look at the already existing Intel 660p Optane, because in essence, they are the same unit, but with the addition of Octane.
