    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.

    Just curious. From what I'm reading, doesn't the Optane Memory help a system with the regular HDs? After all, most people are still using regular HD in conjunction with SSD as the boot drive for the OS. If I have a SSD as a boot drive and a regular HD with all of my Steam games, I don't think the SSD will help speed up the games loading from the HD much but this Optane memory might? I guess I'm one of the few that is still using regular HD...
