Intel and Micron is planning to develop a new type of memory technology. They have been working since 2012. It is named as 3D XPoint which will be the fastest of all. It comprises with DRAM and not as traditional. This memory seems to be non-volatile and stable. This is not as similar to RAM though it comprises of non-volatile memory. The non-volatile memory as indicates that the storage data is not lost as the power goes off. This memory seems to be four times denser than the RAM and as faster in response. The price seems to be higher than the NAND flash memory as it makes the fastest response ever. The NAND technology makes the current trend but this new technology makes the fastest and especially when processing small bits of data.
Intel has started to ship the new product with a great source of technology. The company seems to bring out the product with the content of 375GB Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X. The product also makes the compatibility for the current SSDs. The company develops the product with the same NVMe standard for production of PCIe card. It is an $1520 memory chip consistently developed by Intel. The company has also revealed some official information on the product, but the complete description seems to be highly confidential. For testing process Billy Tallis fromAnandTech and Paul Alcorn from Tom’s Hardware accessed Intel’s server instead of testing on their own computers.
The testing also seems to be highly confidential and the company is making great effort for developing the best memory product. This makes 3D XPoint a great product under development. With limited I/O and terabytes of storage processing this product will rule the area. The memory area is going to get some new update as powerful and faster and it also not going to destroy the NAND and RAM sector.
