Intel has launched its Intel Optane SSD 900P Series, the first solid state device for desktop PC and workstation users built on Intel Optane technology.
The Intel Optane SSD 900P Series delivers low latency and best-in-class random read and write performance at low queue depths — up to four times faster than competitive NAND-based SSDs.
It is ideal for the most demanding storage workloads, including 3D rendering, complex simulations, fast game load times and more. In addition, it has up to 22 times more endurance than other drives.
“The Intel Optane SSD 900P Series brings the workstation-class performance and industry-leading endurance of Intel Optane technology to a client SSD for the first time, and we know end users will find exciting ways to take advantage of the drive to do great things,” says Bill Leszinske, Intel vice-president” non-volatile memory solutions group and director of strategic planning, marketing and business development.
“We are eager to see the possibilities unlocked by software developers, like Roberts Space Industries with Star Citizen, and the SSD to offer users new ways to use larger data sets and more complex workloads to do more.”
During the event, Intel demonstrated the unique universe of Star Citizen on Intel Core i9 processor gaming systems equipped with the Intel Optane SSD 900P Series. The two companies also announced that an exclusive in-game ship, the Sabre Raven, will come with all Intel Optane SSD 900P Series purchases for a limited time.
