[eetimes] Intel Memory Bus Draws Fire [pcworld] Intel's crazy-fast 3D XPoint Optane memory heads for DDR slots (but with a catch) - Page 3

post #21 of 23
What i get from the two articles is that intel isn't focusin on the casual person with this ram or w/e they call it. For me this is irrelevant, its just like VR too expensive not entirely supported etc. What I just dont get is why dont they make a ddr3 version include some extensions as an update in the bios or os for their cpu and some of the mobo oems could include bios updates and eurika ur replacing hdds , if the cost is right.

Assuming it's possible, the R&D costs needed for that wouldn't justify the sales, and the niche who would buy DDR3 XPoint DIMMs is tiny.


Unlike XPoint (atm), VR is actually aimed at consumers. XPoint is aimed at the high-end server market.

Tigerlake = die shrink/new features

thanks for the road map
