Intel Optane DC P4800X Specification leaked on internet, showing the best technology of future. Intel and Micron SSD is expected to deliver even greater performance. And with it they provide a record durability of the storage media. Success comes and thanks to an innovative memory technology 3D xPoint. What performance this technology is to provide for professional applications?
The new architecture Intel Optane DC P4800X memory chips Specification
The technology xPoint Intel technology already shows in 2015. They developed it together with Micron. Typical NAND used for the purpose of choosing combination of read and write speed RAM capacities. It uses disk systems 3D xPoint allows to put the same amount of memory in less space. And at the same time reduces the access time of the micro- to nanoseconds .
Ultimately, Intel Optane drives are designed to provide storage and RAM in a single device . Initially target to professionals in the later models also offer consumers. Meanwhile, the network specification leaks about DC P4800X shows the first corporate Optane disks to work with data centers.
Intel Optane DC P4800X Specification enormous speed and durability record
Hard disk with a capacity of 375 GB has the form of expansion cards HHHL low profile. This is installed in PCI-Express 3.0 x4 port. And using protocol NVMe 1.0. its performance presents great. With writing and reading rate of about 2000 and 2400 MB/s that is surely the current high-end segment. Comparison with a top Samsung 960 Pro this technology seems so reasonable.
A decisive advantage of Intel can be seen, however, in the number of input/output, amounting to 500 thousand. and 550 thousand IOPS (up to 330 thous. In the 960 Pro). It does not look worse MTBF (mean time between failure) of 1 million hours. And also 30-fold DWPD (combined daily record) and up to 12 PB TBW (total write to disk) is very great.
Strength of the new drive Intel's superior to existing structures up to 20 times (MLC). Fortunately, a significant increase in power consumption - P4800X takes up to 18 W of energy.
Intel consistently remain silent, refusing to comment of upcoming release. The price is of secondary importance here . That will be no less prohibitive than the first devices with SLC NAND. Interesting is, however, release date suggests the second half of this year .
