What’s New: Intel today revealed details about Intel® Optane™
memory H10 with solid-state storage – an innovative device that combines
the superior responsiveness of Intel Optane technology with the storage
capacity of Intel® Quad Level Cell (QLC) 3D NAND technology in a single
space-saver M.2 form factor.

“Intel Optane memory H10 with solid-state storage features the unique
combination of Intel Optane technology and Intel QLC 3D NAND –
exemplifying our disruptive approach to memory and storage that
unleashes the full power of Intel-connected platforms in a way no else
–Rob Crooke, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the
Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group
Why It’s Important: Combining Intel Optane technology with Intel
QLC 3D NAND technology on a single M.2 module enables Intel Optane
memory expansion into thin and light notebooks and certain
space-constrained desktop form factors – such as all-in-one PCs and mini
PCs. The new product also offers a higher level of performance not met
by traditional Triple Level Cell (TLC) 3D NAND SSDs today and eliminates
the need for a secondary storage device.
How It’s Different: Intel’s leadership in computing
infrastructure and design allows the company to utilize the value of the
platform in its entirety (software, chipset, processor, memory and
storage) and deliver that value to the customer. The combination of
high-speed acceleration and large SSD storage capacity on a single drive
will benefit everyday computer users, whether they use their systems to
create, game or work. Compared to a standalone TLC 3D NAND SSD system,
Intel Optane memory H10 with solid-state storage enables both faster
access to frequently used applications and files and better
responsiveness with background activity.
8th Generation Intel® Core™ U-series mobile platforms featuring Intel
Optane memory H10 with solid state storage will be arriving through
major OEMs starting this quarter. With these platforms, everyday users
will be able to:
- Launch documents up to 2 times faster while multitasking.
- Launch games 60% faster while multitasking.
- Open media files up to 90% faster while multitasking.
SSDs with Intel Optane memory are the fastest compared to NAND SSDs in
the majority of common client use cases. Intel-based platforms with
Intel Optane memory adapt to everyday computing activities to optimize
the performance for the user’s most common tasks and frequently used
applications. With offerings of up to 1TB of total storage, Intel Optane
memory H10 with solid state storage will have the capacity users need
for their apps and files today — and well into the future.
The Intel Optane memory H10 with solid-state storage will come in the
following capacities, 16GB (Intel Optane memory) + 256GB (storage); 32GB
(Intel Optane memory) + 512GB (storage); and 32GB (Intel Optane memory)
+ 1TB storage.
When/Where You Can Get It: In addition to the first systems being
made available through OEMs (including Dell*, HP*, ASUS*, Acer* and
others), it will also be available on-shelf at Best Buy* and Costco*.
