There are many ways to measure the performance of a PC and many ways to measure the performance of any single sub-system of that computer. Storage performance is no different, and with the movement towards evaluating the performance of computing hardware based on end-user experiences, the expectations of how storage should behave has evolved. As processor performance, graphics capability, and workloads evolve for the consumer, the demand for higher performing storage solutions has increased. The impact of latency on individual IO requests has quickly become the dominant gauge of user-experience based storage performance. By combining the performance of 3D XPoint™ technology with higher capacities than were available with Optane™ Memory, Intel® Optane™ SSD 800P provides desktop users and enthusiasts the best combination of features and capability.
