    These lightning fast nvme drives offer virtually nothing for gaming as there just is no difference over normal sata ssds in real world tests.
    Facts don't exist, only interpretations.

    And not everyone is like you, not everyone wants these for gaming.

    Well considering intel said right there in the article they think it will benefit gamers, his comment is perfectly relevent and helpful to the discussion, unlike yours.

    Um... call me a cynic but I work in 3D and while changing to a faster drive will make a difference in overall performance I question the 11 hour reduction just by changing to the Optane over an already relatively fast SSD... I'm guessing there's some 'special sauce' at play there.

    I'd also have more concern with a games coding if it can't play smooth on a normal ssd....so intel saying Star citizen gameplay will stay smooth to me says that SC is poorly written.

    Re: Intel Optane SSD 900P Series for desktops launched

    I think this is an exciting technology but in 3-5 years when it's cost competitive with SSDs. I would have loved to use optane + HDD but I was on Z170 and now I'm on Ryzen so ... no chance.

    These larger devices will have various use cases but I hope they can get them mainstream quite soon.

    unfortunately rendering nowadays is more GPU focused.

    They make a difference in games with large load times. For Star Citizen, there are no load screens; the benefit of these would be that they won't suffer from stalling or wear from the content streaming.

    Would have been nice with a 120GB version just for OS install, as a gaming drive like others have already said I dont see the point.
