Intel Optane Memory Usage

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I wanted to get some thoughts on this new technology. I bought a 6TB drive 7200 RPM and 32GB of Optane memory. It seems to do very well, I'm seeing a little less than half the performance of an actual SSD nvme drive according to me readings with crystal disk 5.0 (more testing needed) but for having that much storage behind it I'm perfectly fine with it. I'm currently testing this on an Asus Rampage VI Apex motherboard with a 7820X cpu.

One thing that I didn't know about is 16GB does not provide statistics and since I had a 16GB and 32GB in hand I installed the 32GB after trying out the 16 and was eagerly wanting to find out what "statistics" I can read. I was able to get statics but so far the only information it gives is when it was last optimized, whaaat?

My CPU OC crashed one time and I don't know if it's a coincidence but I lost keyboard and mouse control no matter what I did including powering off, restarting, resetting cmos, etc. Once I removed the Optane memory it started working again.

Share your experience with it, thanks.

I did that before enabling it.
