Intel Optane Memory Review – 32GB Module With 3D Xpoint Tested


Intel Optane Memory Test System

To test out the Intel Optane Memory Module we tested on a typical $800 gaming PC that consisted of an Intel Core i7-7500 processor, ASUS Prime B250 Plus motherboard, 16GB HyperX Fury 2400MHz DDR4 memory, WD Black 1TB HDD, Cooler Master G550M 550W PSU, Windows 10 64-bit RS1 and an Intel Optane 32GB Module. After this image was taken we added an EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB FTW+ video card to better play game titles.
