Intel Optane memory boosts speed for gaming, Web browsing
Intel Optane memory, announced in March, is available to purchase at a variety of computer component retailers. With the increased speed and responsiveness of Intel Optane memory in a 7th Generation Intel Core processor-based system, users can do more with their system, without sacrificing the value and capacity of a hard disk drive.
Among the benefits: Intel Optane memory enables web browsers to launch up to 5x faster than a hard disk drive. Games and levels will load faster too – up to 67 percent faster game launch and up to 65 percent faster level load, keeping users in the game.2 Even everyday tasks, like launching productivity apps including email clients, launch nearly 5.8x faster.2 And, because it is smart and adaptable, Intel Optane memory adjusts to your computing habits with intelligent software that learns your computing behaviors, making everything you do faster, smoother, easier.
Intel Optane memory module is on sale now as an add-in component in 16GB (MSRP $44) and 32GB ($77) capacities.
