    $50 for 16GB?
    Oh my word. Can almost get RAM with that money.

    Just get a regular SSD and leave Intel in their own world.

    Oh I wasn't planning on getting one of these ridicules. I'm just baffled by the price.
    Rather take like a TB regular SSD instead of 256GB of that thing (should be similar in price from what I reckon).

    I'm not up to date on these Optane things, what's their target market/use case exactly?

    Latency sensitive applications.

    Optane in the consumer market is mainly for HDDs or low performance SSDs.

    Most consumers here won't have use for it. But the latency is 100x better than any SSDs out there.

    It's also way faster with smaller transfers - good for certain database workloads.

    Not to mention that it's roughly 3x longer endurance. But yeah, its like you said, there is a market for Optane its just not one that any of us care about.
