    Not so sure

    I'm not sure this will have much if any impact on the DIY market as most who would roll there own would pick up an SSD instead. Hey Intel, maybe reduce prices of all your mid to high end desktop CPU's would help?

    Especially DIY people know about the usefulness of Optane - so of all things I'd bundle there, Optane wouldn't be it.

    They have to do something with their Optane stock I spose.

    Yes, the memory that nobody asked for or needed. It's useless in it's current form to an average user, gaming machine, and probably HEDT users too.

    They should just make standard compatibility M.2 NVMe SSDs with 3D XPoint and sell them for a reasonable price. I know I'd rather spend an M.2 slot for a good-sized SSD, not some stupid 16GB lolptane drive.

    Like everyone said before, Optane in his current state is useless! Don´t understand why Intel even bothered releasing it...

    This would surely help.

    To recuperate costs. This was supposed to be the great memory/storage unifier technology. It seems that none of them have really come into fruition, including HP's Machine.

    I wouldn't use Optane in it's current form if you gave it to me for free.

    Optane is miles from what it was touted to be, it needs years more development.

    Hard to recuperate costs with a product that nobody wants... As for what it was supposed to be, we have to give it some time. This is the first generation so maybe in the future it will be what it promised to be...

    Intel is shooting themselves in the foot with this. As soon as I saw the prices when it was first announced, I knew there wouldnt be demand for it, the price is way too high atm.

    I've personally never looked into this optane crap but from what I can gather from comments I assume it's just like using a cache drive is that right?

    Intel has absolutely no vision. They keep all the great tech to themselves and sell us the scraps like it's gold.

    I really hope they get someone there to restructure the entire company.

    They have amazing tech in their labs for sure, but they're giving it to us one bread crumb at a time.

    I hope AMD's threadripper destroys Intel's X299 lineup at a cheaper price, so Intel can go back to the drawing board.

    Amd

    I agree and wish the same about AMD. I do believe Intel has slowed its pace so AMD can get back in the race. In the long term its more profitable having AMD with some extra market share than being deemed a monopoly. When Icelake comes out in 1-2 years we will know exactly how much if any Intel was sandbagging for the last few years.

    I told this before,Intel need a CEO with vision of the future,not some old fart which is still have past visions.Yeah,lets get them some i5/i7 with 5-7% perf,lets get them over-priced Xeons with new socket,but same tick-tock.

    Nobody waits Skylake-X or Coffee Lake,because they will be over-priced vs Ryzen 7.

    I don't think you understand the technicalities in having huge performance increases.

    It's going to be small 5-7% boosts until they hit some kind of breakthrough.

    Yeah you could say more cores but still average PC user can't use many.

    Granted Prices should be lower but that's another story.

    On topic:
    Optane is really nice regarding latency..
    Ten times less than avg SSD but in consumer market that's not too important.

    I would definitely love to take advantage of the technology since I'm the very few that are still using all SATA hard drive but alas, the narrowed vision of only making the memory available only for the Kaby Lake chip and above is pretty lame. Just upgraded to Skylake on last summer and have no desire to upgrading this machine for a long while.

    Might jump on the SSD bandwagon soon but just don't have any desire of reinstalling everything for a while... we'll see how it goes.

    ~$480 is not a lot of money for a card that practically runs every single game at 60FPS+ QHD and has no competition currently. Nvidia could have kept the price up at $600 if it wanted to and priced the Ti at $800. There were people literally expecting the Ti to be priced at $800 and we're still going to buy it prior to it being announced, me included.

    At launch Gtx 1080 was expensive,FE or not.Now you can buy cheaper on ebay.
