Intel to release new storage drives with 3D Xpoint tech 1000 faster times than NAND Flash.



Intel Corp. is starting to ship the first products based on new technology.

The new storage drives, are based on technology called 3D XPoint.
“It blurs the line between system memory and storage,” said Diane Bryant, an executive vice president who oversees Intel’s Data Center Group. She said 3D XPoint, pronounced “three-dee cross point,” can help accelerate tasks such as fraud detection, retail purchase recommendations, and autonomous driving.
Intel claims the raw 3D XPoint technology is 1,000 times faster than the NAND flash commonly used in storage drives, though still about 10% the speed of temporary memory called DRAM, or dynamic random-access memory.

The storage drives Intel is initially shipping can’t take full advantage of the new technology’s speed because of the way they connect to computers.


The new storages drives Intel is making widely available on Sunday.
