Random access memory (RAM) can dramatically impact the performance of your system. Generally, the more memory your system has, the more it can:
Your computer memory is otherwise known as RAM, which stands for random access memory.
Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) is a type of memory that is typically used for data or program code.
DDR5 stands for double data rate 5, a type of RAM memory. It is the latest version of synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM).
Whether you are a content creator, gamer, professional, or everyday multitasker, you want a PC that can keep up with your digital life with the best components inside: Intel® Core™ processors for performance with Intel® Optane™ memory for responsiveness.From system startup to application launching, Intel Optane memory is smart technology that accelerates the computing experience by learning your customers most common tasks. It accesses the computer’s frequently used documents, pictures, videos, and applications quickly, and remembers them, even after powering off the PC—enabling you to create, game, and produce with less waiting.
Intel® Optane™ memory is a smart technology that accelerates computers’ responsiveness in platforms based on the latest Intel® Core™ processors. Available in multiple capacity options in an M.2 form factor, Intel Optane memory accelerates your mobile or desktop system—delivering amazing speed and responsiveness without compromising system storage capacity.
Accelerate existing large storage to SSD-like performance. Add responsiveness to your PC by pairing Intel® Optane™ Memory M10 or M15 with an existing HDD to deliver SSD-like responsiveness from your accelerated HDD boot or data drive
Intel® Optane™ memory is a system acceleration solution for the 7th Gen and 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processor platforms. This solution comes in a module format and by placing this new memory media between the processor and a slower SATA-based storage devices ( HDD, SSH or SATA SSD), you are able to store commonly used data and programs closer to the processor, allowing the systems to access this information more quickly and improves overall systems performance.
The Intel® Optane™ memory module does not replace DRAM. It can be, however, added to DRAM to increase systems performance.
Yes! Intel® Optane™ memory can be sued to accelerate and type of STA-based storage media, including SATA SSDs. However, the performance benefit of adding Intel® Optane™ memory will be greater on slower storage devises like an HDD.
You have choices based upon your requirements. Typically, if you need high capacity storage, you will choose an HDD. SSDs are often lower in capacity and tend to be more expensive. Paired with a HDD, Intel® Optane™ memory delivers increased responsiveness of an SSD with the high capacity of a HDD
The main difference between 32GB and 16 GB is the number of applications that can be accelerated. The 32GB module is ideal for power users who often use a variety of intensive applications, such as prosumers and gamers. It is also recommended if you play more than one game at a time.
The second time an application or file is used, it is accelerated and you will experience a huge benefit. One the third launch is when the fill effect of Intel® Optane™ memory kicks in. Note: Intel® Optane™ memory prioritizes frequently used applications and files thus, infrequently used files and applications will fall out of cache.
This is highly dependent on the size and architecture of the software you are using, as well as other software being used and the configuration of your platform.
Game play will not be that different between an SSD and an HDD based systems since the games are loaded into DRAM during play.
