Last month Intel and Micron announced 3D XPoint, a new memory technology that promises 1,000 times higher performance and endurance than NAND flash memory as well as higher storage density.

Now Intel reveals it's working on Optane, a technology based on 3D XPoint. The chip giant did not reveal a lot of details in the press release but one of the exciting things is that the technology will hit the market in 2016.

Optane will be used for high-performance SSDs as well as a new line of Intel DIMMs designed for the firm's next-gen datacenter platforms.
Intel introduced Intel® Optane™ technology, which is based on the revolutionary 3D XPoint™ non-volatile memory media and combined with the company's advanced system memory controller, interface hardware and software IP, to unleash vast performance potential in a range of forthcoming products. Intel Optane technology will first come to market in a new line of high-endurance, high-performance Intel SSDs beginning in 2016. The new class of memory technology will also power a new line of Intel DIMMs designed for Intel's next-generation data center platforms.
