    I like how Optane SSD's are warm when in reality the price has put many off

    But will it light up, like the 905P?

    If it's warm enough, it'll definitely light up.

    Why have they styled those heatsinks to look like floppy disk shutters?

    Re: Intel discusses its upcoming Optane DC persistent memory

    Quickly read the above. Kinda reinforces what I thought...

    There is a reason this hasn't been done before, and a reason xpoint ssd's are expensive. They are overprovisioned to hell to make the endurance last. In a DIMM they would not last long...
