Intel introduces its first Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X – 1000 times faster than SSD
Intel today just has launched its first Intel Optane SSD with 3D XPoint memory after waiting two years since the announcement in 2015. The Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X, is said to be 1000 times faster than flash NAND.
At the moment, it only available for enterprise usage, the Intel Optane SSD DX P4800X is designed for heavy workload such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, faster trading, and deeper insights into medical scans. It expands the reach of cloud computing solutions.
