Anyone been following 3D XPoint technology?

Recommended Posts

Well, if you haven't, it's bad-ass, non-volatile memory technology.

Up to 1000x faster and more durable than NAND, and 10x the density of DRAM.  Check out the demo of Rob Crooke (Senior VP and GM of Intel's Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group) transferring a file at nearly 2GB/s! using 3D XPoint-based Optane SSDs.  2GB/second?!?!  Nice!

If you've read any of my stuff in the past, you'll know I love hardware advancements.  I suspect this one (2GB/s transfer speeds) might give our prestigious contributor, DOS76, a Nerdgasm, as he would phrase it.  xD
