Today at the CES Intel press Room, Intel unveiled its next addition to the Intel Optane line; the Intel Optane 800P. The 800P will start shipping in February and is a PCIe ‘2 lane’ SSD based on their latest technology which will be an amazing addition for a laptop, but for their size.
Initial release of 58/118GB just might make ultrabook inclusion a bit restrictive but Intel is hoping to see this SSD become a base system SSD for builders; it is bootable. This just might be an ideal inclusion into laptops that can accommodate dual storage.
Performance cannot be disclosed as we are held to embargo but and pricing has yet to be disclosed. The Optane 800P is based on Intel 3DXPoint technology and will include a 5 year limited warranty. Further, endurance is listed as 200GB per day for the Optane 800P.
Intel might suggest that the 800P would be an absolutely fantastic base system SSD while the 900P seconds as a storage drive. Its controller is based on that of the 900P and either SSD as a startup boot drive is the absolute best in system performance today. Check our Intel Optane SSD 900P Review and see for yourself!!!
