Can someone please explain to me what this is exactly and what Platform would I need in order to use it? I know a little about what it does so basicly looking for someone to make me feel better about spending my money on it haha.

If I do not go with Intel I will more then likely build a Ryzen based system instead,Kinda thorn between the 2 at the moment.

Much thanks Nick.

At least z270 chipset if I'm not mistaken. Its like a hdd cache stored in memory.. didn't look that amazing in the end.

It may be amazing for certain server scenarios but for a normal consumer is garbage! Keep your distance, and money, away from it and just buy a good SSD.

Another super-hyped vaporware piece of garbage from Intel. It was supposed to be the SSD killer and instead it's a hardware based cache.

There's literally free programs that do the same thing with less latency.

Intel should be ashamed of themselves.

Wow I really did not expect to hear all these negative things about it (damm) I dont know Amd has turned-up the heat on them for sure forcing them to respond. The optane is rather expensive so I might pass (not sure) but thank you guys for being honest about it, Cheers.
