Chip-maker Intel announced six new memory and storage products to help customers meet the challenges of digital transformation.
The company also unveiled two new additions to its Intel Optane Solid State Drive (SSD) Series which feature performance and mainstream productivity for gaming and content creation.
Optane helps meet the needs of modern computing by bringing the memory closer to the CPU, Intel said during its Memory and Storage 2020 event on Wednesday.
The company said it will deliver its third generation of Intel Optane persistent memory (code-named Crow Pass) for cloud and enterprise customers.
“With the release of these new Optane products, we continue our innovation, strengthen our memory and storage portfolio,” said Alper Ilkbahar, Intel vice president in the Data Platforms Group and general manager of the Intel Optane Group.
With new Optane products, Intel continues to establish a new tier in the data centre memory and storage pyramid, which combines the attributes of both DRAM and NAND.
Intel said its Optane SSDs alleviate data supply bottlenecks and accelerate applications with fast caching and fast storage to increase scale-per-server and reduce transaction costs for latency-sensitive workloads.
Intel also announced three new NAND SSDs featuring 144-layer cell memory: Intel SSD 670p, the company’s next-gen 144-layer quad-level-cell (QLC) 3D NAND SSD for mainstream computing; Intel SSD D7-P5510, the world’s first-to-market 144-layer triple-level-cell NAND design; and Intel SSD D5-P5316, a greater-density, higher-endurance SSD built around the industry’s first 144-layer QLC NAND.
The Intel 3D NAND SSD 670p is Intel’s next-gen 144-layer quad-level-cell (QLC) 3D NAND SSD for mainstream computing. The Intel SSD D7-P5510 is the world’s first-to-market 144-layer TLC NAND design and Intel SSD D5-P5316 is built around the industry’s first 144-layer QLC NAND.
