Intel Optane Persistent Memory 512GB Module Can be Yours for $7816

Woah! … 512GB of Intel Optane Persistent memory, yours for only USD $7,816!

Optane Persistent Memory is being touted by Intel as the “hottest” storage medium between DRAM and NVMe SSDs in the short-term, and a successor to DRAM-based memory in the long-term, aided by its ability to hold data even in the absence of power. The company’s latest Xeon Scalable “Cascade Lake” processors support Optane Persistent Memory, allowing data-centers to cram larger amounts of data accessible at DRAM-like speeds, even if at much higher latencies. It remains significantly faster than NVMe SSDs. Component retails began listing 512 GB modules of the Optane Persistent Memory, and its prices are nothing like your 512 GB NVMe SSD.

 

CompSource lists the 512 GB module (model: NMA1XXD512GPSU4) for a whopping USD $7,816, although the product is out of stock.
