Micron QuantX memory products to arrive later this year

Intel was the first to launch products based on the new 3D XPoint memory it developed in cooperation with Micron. The firm launched an Optane SSD for server applications and earlier this week it added a cache memory product for desktop PCs.

Micron's 3D XPoint memory will be marketed as QuantX and the company said it will start shipping sometime later this year. However, contrary to Intel, Micron will not launch QuantX storage products. The company will exclusively offer QuantX memory sticks but will offer the technology to third parties so storage firms will be able to launch 3D XPoint-based SSDs.
But unlike Intel, Micron is not interested in making its own Optane-like storage. The company is licensing its 3D Xpoint technology to other storage makers. Micron's QuantX will also be available the form of DDR-style memory, the company has said.

It's not yet known which storage makers will offer SSDs based on QuantX. Micron did not respond to requests for comment.
Micron said its partners will offer QuantX-based SSDs with a capacity of up to 1.4TB, but just like the first Optane storage product from Intel, these NVMe disks will be aimed at server applications.
