intel's new optane memory for PC or laptop???
« on: March 08, 2019, 07:02:12 am »

Is there anybody here who uses intel's new OPTANE memory in laptop or desktop computer for photo or video editing?
Any big difference for editing? Any major increase in time when opening and saving photo or rendering video footage?
Thanks!

Intel Optane is just like MacOS Fusion drive - it's a small NVMe SSD caching device designed to sit in front of a larger normal hard drive or slower solid state chips.  There are enterprise products marketed under the name as well.  The tech is designed for the server market, where lots of data write/overwrite/updates lead to wear issues on ssd chips.

You're better off with top end consumer NVMe devices, and more of them.
