Intel Optane Memory 32GB M.2 NVMe SSD Review

Another review of the Intel Optane Memory 32GB M.2 NVMe SSD has popped up this afternoon. This time it is the crew at TweakTown doing the reviewing.

Caching is back. Our first in-house hands-on with Optane comes in the form of Intel's Optane Memory modules. Optane Memory is a low cost - small capacity (16 or 32GB) PCIe Gen3x2 Single sided 3D XPoint-based M.2 x 2280 caching SSD designed to accelerate high-capacity SATA-based storage. The Intel Optane Memory module is a system accelerator that learns and adjusts to your computing tasks - greatly enhancing the user experience by accelerating frequent tasks such as booting your PC, launching programs and web browsers.
