    Sounds OK. You can write the drive twice per day so basically 730 cycles per year, with a 5 year warranty that is 3650 cycles so in line with standard flash chips.

    OTOH, for the price of the 118GB Optane drive you could almost get a 1TB SATA SSD where 200GB is 1/5th of a cycle so it would take 5 days per cycle. That's one fifth of a cycle compare to 2 cycles per day, a factor of 10 difference so at the same wear rate of 200GB/day a 1TB SSD would see 365 cycles over 5 years. All SSDs feel the same to me in terms of performance, so I'll just take the biggest I can get for my money thanks.

    Seems rather pricey,which is a bit of a shame.

    Crosspoint memory is pricey and has potential it's just not quite there yet.
    It's supposed to be a halfway house between the speed of ram and capacity of flash memory.

    It's just a bit to slow and small. It should be good as an os drive or a cache drive

    "thinks Intel." "More specifically Intel reckons"

    hexus jumping on the hate bandwagon now? or is it a slow regression?

    please dont, I have been a very long time fan of this site.

    Slow? I think with a storage controller in the way it will never be the claimed speed of Xpoint, but then the original claimed speeds and endurance were clearly magnitudes too hopeful for a robust end product. It is expensive and small and wears out too fast, but in storage terms the one thing I wasn't expecting anyone to complain about was it was too slow!!

    I think in the current market people want a bigger SSD over a faster SSD, my standard PC drive size is 500GB with the occasional 1TB.

    Don't see how you can get Intel hate from that text. Just read to me that Hexus was making it obvious that it wasn't their opinion, just what Intel say in their press release, which would make sense if they haven't used the drive and hence can't really have an opinion. But articles from press releases must be hard, easy to come across as a fanboy site publishing any press release from a company verbatim as well. I think Hexus got the thin line quite well here.
