Intel Optane Memory Tested As Boot Drive, Secondary and RAID 0

Postby Apoptosis » Tue May 09, 2017 8:53 am

When we covered the Intel Optane Memory Series launch last month the focus was entirely on the drive from a caching perspective as that is the point of the product. We ended up with some angry e-mails and comments on social media about why we didn't test the raw performance of the drive and even test it as a boot drive. We don't see too many people buying the 32GB model as a boot drives due to the $76 price point, but we were curious how an Intel Optane Memory module would perform as a primary boot drive, a secondary drive and then as a RAID 0 array with two of them. We managed to get our hands on a second Intel Optane Memory Module 32GB, so we fired up our storage test platform and gave it a quick look.
