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.

Product works well, but make sure you have your system set up to accept optane!

Pros: Once installed, the optane memory does the job. This is not as easy as a simple plug and play. Certain settings and formats must be in place for the memory to work. Take your time and do the research and you won't be disappointed.

Cons: A little tricky to set up, but worth the effort.

Other Thoughts: As far as the product goes, I would have given it 5 stars, but the install was a little more difficult than expected. intel support was awesome!

Quick and Easy boost to hard drive performance

Pros: When the product first came out, reviewers rightly dinged it, the slot requirements sort of negated needing it as there is very little to no performance increase in having it cache another M2 drive, especially a 3 x 4 as its only a 3 x2 PCI lanes wide. Give Intel credit they listened and corrected the short coming, now you can tie it to a strict data drive and boost the performance to far faster than a sata3 SSD. Some will say SSD are cheap, really what does a 6 TB SSD cost? what about the 12 TB hard drive I have boosted, do they make a SSD that size? I use the drive for raw video files and Steam (2 TB and counting) and I can tell you the steam shell loads like its stored on my PCIe M2 drive, and on the second loading of the game you will see the difference, by the third loading it rocks! The size allows it to store a number of games so if I bounce to another game, come back to the first it still loads lightning fast.

Cons: Can be a bit tricky to set up, I used my MB vendors site, Intel's site, and uTube, spent maybe 30 minutes and installed it with no issues at all and its been problem free ever since. You need to use Intel's rapid store technology and let the RST have control over it and disable one function CMS I think it was.

Other Thoughts: yes I would recommend this product, if you are like me and your Steam drive is measured in TBs this item is the key to cutting load times and greatly improving performance. The raw video files and those are measured in TB's also load faster if I work with the same file more than once and the best part is when I load a game previously played, it still loads lightning fast due to 32G of space.

Awesome product. Needs room for improvement

Pros: Really boost my hdd. Games and files launch a lot faster

Cons: Causes raid volume (hdd+optane) to disconnect, thus apps installed in hdd can't be accessed due to drivers of optane that do not auto install

Other Thoughts: It's a good product if you don't mind the cons but it can get quite irritating after a while.

I've been out of the upgrade your computer game, it was like riding a bicycle

Pros: It was easy to physically install, the software worked from the beginning. It was a literal 15 min install.

Cons: After a windows update, noticed a slight slowdown in the performance.

Excellent performance for a fraction of the cost.

Pros: Excellent performance and load times when paired with a HDD.
In some cases, faster than standard SSD load times.

If everything is setup correctly or you have a new build its quite simple to activate
- Turn on in bios
- Download drivers etc.
- Pair with HDD
- Turn on in windows and the rest is done behind the scenes.

Cons: Configuration can be quite tricky if your SSD/HDD boot tables and such are not setup correctly.
I had to muck around with a few reinstalls that end up locking me out of my pc and end up doing a few fresh windows 10 reinstall to get it right after moving MBR to the correct drives etc.

Provided you don't run into those issues it's quite simple.

Other Thoughts: My setup is OS installed on a 500gb SSD
and Optane paired with a HDD purely for games.

Awesome idea to make your SSD or HDD much faster

Pros: Greatly increased my computer boot and load speeds

Cons: Setup was not as easy as I'd have liked, mostly because the documentation is asking for a specific file you need to download from Intel's website, but the website has it hidden away.

Other Thoughts: If you have a SATA SSD or HDD, plugging this Optane Memory module into your M.2 port will make that SSD or HDD as fast as an SSD plugged into the M.2 port. So this means you can have a massive HDD (which is slow) and accelerate it with the Optane module. It works exactly as advertised. So much so that when we buy computers at work next time I'm going to insist that each one has this. Energy savings alone will cover the minor cost: boot times are now faster than the monitor can come on.

Works great, fast access.

Pros: Easy to install. Windows loads at lightning speed

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to anyone looking to free up hard drive space and get great speed out of their operating system or whatever you want to store on it.
