Intel® Optane™ memory is a radically innovative technology that makes your computer work more efficiently.

Watch Intel® Optane™ in Action

Productivity should also be more personalized. What if devices could learn from individual work patterns and tailor productivity to different habits and preferences? Through behavioral intelligence, new Intel® Optane™ memory technology speeds up frequent tasks by predicting people’s patterns. Points to consider:
  • Intel® Optane™ memory is smart memory. It adapts to your behavior, preloads and accelerates what you do.
  • When paired with a powerful Intel® Core™ processor, it significantly reduces the waiting time to load data for CPU.
  • Intel® Optane™ memory delivers much more responsiveness than adding additional system memory (DRAM) beyond 8GB.
Adding Intel® Optane™ memory to your 8th Gen or 7th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor-based desktops with hard disk drives provides up to 14 times faster storage performance versus hard disk drives alone. Microsoft* Outlook launches up to 5.8 times faster, Microsoft* PowerPoint launches up to 3.8 times faster, and the revolutionary responsiveness of Intel® Optane™ memory turns even the smallest, routine tasks into huge productivity gains 7th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor-based desktops with hard disk drives provides up to 14 times faster storage performance versus hard disk drives alone. 
  • For mainstream and productive Users that use a HDD, you can boot your computer, launch applications, and do virtually everything else faster, smoother and easier.
  • For gamers, using an HDD only and dual drives, the speed of your digital library of games on HDD will be accelerated to SSD-like speed. 
  • For prosumer creators using SSD only and dual drives, expect your digital library of contents and editing applications on a 1T/2T HDD will be accelerated to SSD-like speed.
