Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to www.intel.com/benchmarks.

Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.

1 SYSmark 2014 SE (Responsiveness Subscore). Benchmark from the BAPCo* consortium that measures the performance of Windows* platforms. SYSmark* tests four usage scenarios: Office Productivity, Media Creation, Data/Financial Analysis, and Responsiveness. SYSmark* contains real applications from Independent Software Vendors such as Microsoft* and Adobe*.
2 Browser Launch Workload. Workload developed by Intel measuring the time elapsed to launch Google* Chrome.

4 Email Launch Workload. Workload developed by Intel measuring the time elapsed to launch Microsoft* Outlook 2016 and load with a 250mb local data file.
5 Presentation Launch Workload. Time elapsed to launch the Microsoft* Powerpoint 2016 application with a 3.5MB presentation file.
6 Media Project Load Workload. Time elapsed to load a 500MB video project file in Adobe* Premiere Pro (CS6).
7 Tested on Intel Core i5-7500 Processor, 65W TDP, 4C4T, Turbo up to 3.8GHz, Memory: 2x4GB DDR4-2400, Storage: Western Digital* 1TB 7200RPM WD1003FZEX, Intel HD Graphics 630, OS: Windows* 10 as measured against the same system with a 16GB Intel Optane memory module.
8 Tested with 16GB Intel Optane Memory Engineering Samples. Results may vary in final product, but we have a high confidence level that there will be no significant differences in performance.
9 Gaming workloads were tested with same configuration, except using a discrete graphics card (NVIDIA* (EVGA) GTX 1080) with and without 16GB Intel Optane Memory Module.
10 SYSmark* 2014 SE (Responsiveness Subscore) — benchmark from the BAPCo* consortium that measures the performance of Windows* platforms.  SYSmark* tests four usage scenarios:   Office Productivity, Media Creation, Data/Financial Analysis, and Responsiveness.  SYSmark* contains real applications from Independent Software Vendors such as Microsoft* and Adobe*.
11 PCMark* Vantage - Benchmark from Futuremark* that measures Windows* everyday computing performance. PCMark Vantage is made up of several benchmarking suites:  PCMark Suite (produces "PCMark" Score), Memories Suite, TV and Movies Suite, Gaming Suite, Music Suite, Communications Suite, Productivity Suite and HDD Suite. The HDD Suite contains an operating system start-up workload that is sensitive to HDD versus SSD boot devices

In Two Words: GET IT!

Pros: makes a spinner as fast as an SSD with few limits

Cons: Install will be tricky if you try to wing it

Other Thoughts: I installed the 16GB version in a Asus FX laptop and my hard drive benchmarks time hit the roof. A firecuda 1tb showed 950 reads 170 writes on an 8GB file!

Check to make sure your system has the very latest bios

Install the Optane chip FIRST

Then Uninstall Intel Rapid Storage tech drivers

Then install the Optane support software

Then run it and follow the prompts. Damm easy install.

Be amazed at the boost your rig gets

The i5 laptop only took two seconds longer to boot Win10 against an i7 with an M.2 ssd boot drive!

See my review on the Asus FX 504GE for more details on this amazing upgrade.

Nice HDD upgrade without the costly SSD price tag

Pros: Have not got my HDD and OS yet but the motherboard did recognize it in bios without issue or driver download needed for initial install. How ever based on the reviews I have seen on YouTube it does in fact seem to give you decent data reads and writes (meaning faster read write speeds of HDD) without the SSD price tag per GB of data of larger HDDs

Cons: I wanted the 32 GB one but was not available at the time I had the money to buy one. Other than that I see no issues at present time for it to not work as intended.

Most Cost Performance for AMD StoreMi tech

Pros: cheapest price for a NVMe M.2 SSD which can works perfect with AMD StoreMi tech.

Cons: not now

Other Thoughts: Inter works with AMD, seems like a joke

Don't waste your time

Pros: - inexpensive
- potential technological break thru

Cons: - Unless you plan on installing your OS on a legacy (HDD) hard drive this thing is useless.
- It must be attached to your root drive
- in comparison to a high performance SSD with OS it dramatically slows your system.
The technology behind this is sound but the application Intel handcuffs users to is a decade behind. Use this 3d architecture to build an advanced SSD and this would rock the computer world. As it is now, it's just a light paperweight. I flogged mine on REMOVED BY MODS.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time or money on this until Intel smartens up and unleashes the potential of this technology in a realistic and useful way.

impossible to set

Pros: I would like to have something to say...

Cons: Without Optane selection on bios (v.0906) all work perfectly. I have installs all last drivers.
Intel tool says it's incompatible with my bios... As soon as I select in the bios to use the Optane, windows give errors...
Still don't know what to do...

Other Thoughts: My config is : A fresh Asus Z270E + bios updated to 0906 + I7-7700K + Windows 10 64b + 16Gb corsair DDR4 3200 + SSD EVO 850 Pro 512Go. Optane installed in M2 slot at the bottom of the card. Optane card recognized as a 16gb drive by windows drive manager.

Manufacturer Response:
In addition to the proper BIOS and Hardware, there are some BIOS settings that need to be made to enable system acceleration with Intel Optane memory. If the OS was installed with the SATA mode set to AHCI, manually changing this to the Optane selection will result in errors. The Intel Optane Memory UI is able to make these changes to your BIOS settings for you during installation of the application in most cases as long as your BIOS is set to CSM disabled beforehand.

If this does not work, after backing up all of your data, you can make the changes to the BIOS as noted in the User and Installation Guide (http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/memory-and-storage/intel-optane-memory/000023989.html), or Video (http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/memory-and-storage/intel-optane-memory/000023853.html) and reinstall your OS/Optane UI.

If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly (http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/contact-support.html#@3).
5/ 5
Great product. Perfect for new builders trying to avoid NAND Shortage Prices

Pros: Intel really knocked it out of the park with this one.

- I feel the need, the need... for SPEED. Drastically increases the speed of any HDD.
- Allows new builders with plenty of room to upgrade to SSD at a later date (such as when there isn't a NAND Shortage). Optane + 1 TB HDD = $100 worth of storage at SSD speeds vs. $270 for a 1 TB SSD.

Cons: - Just because a mobo has M.2 doesn't mean it supports NVMe. Requires a compatible motherboard which could be considered high end.

Other Thoughts: There are a couple of negative reviews here indicating that it didn't increase the speed of their SSD... DUH! With a little light reading they could have discovered that well before purchasing.

Great upgrade for current SATA III HDs; does exactly what it's advertised to do!

Pros: My computer boots in 12 seconds from BIOS screen to fully loaded desktop.
Programs load in half the time; it's the same with games.

Cons: None yet! You will have no "Cons' to report if you use the detailed installations instructions

Other Thoughts: You MUST read the installation instructions to successfully install and deploy this memory.
Your BIOS must be configured as UEFI, CSM disabled and your OS has to be installed with a GPT/GUID format and boot record. It's all in the instructions available from Intel.
