Actually, what makes it special as a DRAm replacement is it's density and yes it's non volatile parameters. What makes it special as a NAND replacement is it's speed. However, Intel is looking to target almost everything, including VMs since they are mentioned many times in the presentation below.Here is Intel's...
There is a really good case study on Samsung done by Harvard Business School, may favorite part is when their president or leader at the time (i forgot his position) was so upset with the quality of their products that he took all the factory workers outside along with their products, put them (products) in a pile, and burned 10s of millions of dollars worth of electronics in front of all those who made them, while preaching higher quality like an evangelical preacher....
Well you have to understand that DRAm will still be faster than XPoint, XPoint is meant to increase memory density on the enterprise side since there is a much greater demand for high density DDR4 banks, but NAND is too slow, that is where Xpoint comes in. Right now there are some stacked DRAM solutions coming out to compete with Xpoint. The increased demand for visualization inside organizations, and the increase in CPU core counts, DRAM needs to keep up. Most...
Intel said that it would be in DDR4 DIMMs for "next generation Xeons", that was back at IDF and they said it would launch mid 2016 for the server CPU DIMMs. It would be electrically compatible with DDR4, but only work with these Xeons. I assume they were referencing Broadwell-EP since it fits the general time frame and it wasn't released back then. I was at IDF and i atteneded many of their XPoint seminars, some interesting points other than speed numbers:Optane (SSD) will...
Xpoint will initially be a DDR4 drop in, but later on it will be a NAND replacement.
They all use different sized screws but I am surprised it shorted the board??? I would try maybe using cardboard or paper spacers to hold the card down. I always use different screws and it works.
you will be fine! I have a buddy whom I gave a Z97 biostar motherboard too and it's running fine for over a year. I have a few Z170 biostar motherboards and they are solid. I think they are solid man, i wouldn't worry. The BIOS is a bit rudimentary, I really like their Z170GT7 it has a different bios and i like the LEDs, all other board makers should take note at how biostar executed VRM heatsink LEDs on their GT7 (b/c it's the best LED/RGB LED execution I have ever seen...
BIOS to BIOS auto rules change that control timings and voltages. You probably need to increase VCCSA and VCCIO to like 1.25v each or something like that.
Thanks!I am referring to the latest models released, so after the first wave of boards, majority of them are easy to spot from the extra pins in the socket. The X99A GODLIKE GAMING has the extra pins. Most of ASRock's boards with the USB 3.1 also have the extra pins (or refresh like the OC Formula). A lot of GBT's boards with the P also carry the extra pins with a switch to disable them, and they have solved a lot of the BIOS bugs which were present on the earlier ones....
sad, but expected. We will see other PC makers meet the same fate.
