[pcworld] Intel Optane Memory has a mission: Make hard drives faster than SSDs - Page 8

I would imagine it kills the iops or something along those lines?

But failure is an issue, data loss and time loss is massive. I'd rather replace my Optane cache than replace my entire OS + all of the things I had. That and replacing my two SSDs is twice is as expensive.

Anybody on here got Optane installed? Worth upgrading to Kaby Lake just for it? I am more interested in the responsiveness than loading time. thumb.gif Just like a good tune on a motorcycle!

current iteration doesn't do much unless you're on a HDD-only system

if you are, it's likely better to buy an SSD rather than replace CPU+mobo to access Optane

They should've had an option for turning the entire drive into a page file and let windows do the normal caching into the page file... Seems like a waste of money still and as many others have said its going to die like all of Intel's past attempts at this kind of tech.

Cyro, do you currently own one and running it?? Anybody on here got real life experience with it? I am not seeking better loading time, just an overall responsiveness of the whole system . The low latency is unreal.

Lol. So not running RAID 0 is equivalent to backing up your computer? Also, this might be a shock, but an SSD that is not in an array is just as likely to fail as one that is. In fact, maybe more so since RAID 0 splits up the writes.

I have 6 (yes, six!) SSDs in a RAID 0 array, and they have been working great and giving me insane I/O speed for years. I guess I forgot to tell them that you can't run them in RAID?

I was skilled. You can also make multiple windows for each group of 20-70 tabs.

Why would you need that many tabs open?

I'm not busting your chops. I'm sure there was a good reason; I just don't know what it is.

You open article, and want to continue reading later, you have opened interesting resource, you are watching 30 threads on forums, you have opened youtube songs.

30 PDF files.
Like these https://d1z4o56rleaq4j.cloudfront.net/downloads/assets/Valient_Killzone_Shadow_Fall_Demo_Postmortem.pdf?mtime=20160413140731
https://www.ets.org/s/gre/pdf/gre_guide_table4.pdf
40 download tabs which would take a while without paying for premium downloads.
20 pages with book lists which you want to look at to decide what you'd like to find in a library.
Few sites with cute images.

Doesd this work for X99 System? confused.gif

Not sure if it works in the way Intel presented it for consumers (their software cache program for HDDs) but works for any system that recognizes NVMe drives (so you can use it like any other drive): https://www.servethehome.com/intel-optane-memory-m-2-16gb-32gb-work-servers-zfs-cache-devices/
