Intel Optane Memory 32GB Review

Although the Optane Memory module can be used with a standard SATA SSD or SSHD, we tested it in combination with a standard HDD (4TB WD Black drive) as according to Intel this is where the greatest gains in performance are to be seen. We also tested the Memory module as a stand-alone drive.

Main system:
Intel Core i7 7700K with 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, Sapphire R9 390 Nitro and an Asus Prime Z270-A  motherboard.
