Good news for game lover !
Intel announced that ,it has developed a new kind of memory device called “Optane “. This advanced memory technology is relatively very high data transfer and storage rate than other conventional flash memory .This is good news for game lover , since gaming application need ten’s of gigabyte of play space to it will accelerate speed of processor so that computer can work smoothly without any disturbance . This technology is used as a RAM of computer ,and Intel Optane memory prioritizes frequently used files and applications for acceleration. Thus, infrequently used files and applications may fall out of the cache overtime.
Intel also announced that it will soon sell this device to data centers . The cost at beginning is relatively higher than conventional memory architecture , 375GigaByte of intel Optain drive cost $1520 but this drive is ten times faster , reliable and efficient hence overall engineering cost will decrease dramatically . The whole architecture is explained intel’s video below .
Instead of using moore’s law to double transistor inside the chip intel developed new technology to challenge the moore’s law .
Specifications and minimum requirements
For Intel Optane memory to be supported, a PC needs to have a windows 10 64 bit ,7th Gen Intel Core processor, an Intel 200 series chipset, an M.2 type 2280-S1-B-M connector on a PCH Remapped PCIe Controller and Lanes in a x2 or x4 configuration with B-M keys that meet NVMe Spec 1.1,System BIOS that supports the Intel Rapid Storage Technology 15.5 or later driver and for for more detail see intel official website http://www.intel.com/optanememory
