[TH]Intel 3D XPoint Optane SSD DC P4800X Tested

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Well, they finally got their hands on Optane! Looks impressive smile.gif Certainly the fastest, ever!
Quote:

The elusive 3D XPoint non-volatile memory technology is finally ready. Well, kind of. You see, we don't actually have it set up in our lab yet. Intel has a keen interest in keeping its new progeny under the strictest of wraps, so we weren’t actually allowed to take possession of the 3D XPoint-powered ‘Cold Stream’ Optane SSD DC P4800X. Instead, the company offered us an opportunity to remotely test the drive in a top-secret lab tucked away on its Folsom, CA campus. Of course, we had to get our hands on the hottest storage device ever, if only virtually. And in the end, we came away with some impressive preliminary numbers.

Here's Anandtech's review.
http://www.anandtech.com/show/11209/intel-optane-ssd-dc-p4800x-review-a-deep-dive-into-3d-xpoint-enterprise-performance


Check out that random read at QD1. Latency seems to be pretty good too compared to NAND. Not nearly as good though as Intel claims though: http://www.anandtech.com/show/9470/intel-and-micron-announce-3d-xpoint-nonvolatile-memory-technology-1000x-higher-performance-endurance-than-nand




That said, it is a very, very long way from taking on RAM. It's better than NAND, but not nearly as good as DRAM. I'd love to see them include a RAMDisk for a comparison test.

wonder if there are any prosumers who will opt for this over a 960 Pro 2TB

What are the chances X299 and X399 platforms will support Optane? Would be nice to get in on the hype once they are more mature without having to build a new system.

At what point do we stop using DRAM.

The speed on these is bananas. Sub .1ms random read/write access times. Crazy.

Not for a while. The access time on DRAM is 1000x lower than Intel's RRAM.

My RAMdisk has about 2x 4k random performance in QD1, but half the 4k random performance in high queue depth. Desktops dont really see much queue depth though so that difference will only matter in server situations. In sequential testing my RAMdisk is 4-5x faster in low and high queue depth situations than the Optane drive.

375GB at what was it $1500? Or 2TB on the 960 Pro for less...

1000 times this 1000 times that so far it doesn't seem that much faster than other SSDs, the only thing 1000 times so far seems the price.

Just wait for the dimms they should be better then I'll upgrade my rig to that and and if they will support it.

SSDs are already more than what 95% of users need to begin with. This whole rush for speed is nothing more than corporate cash grab. "OMG you need 1.5gb read speeds" rolleyes.gif
