Intel Optane persistent memory ships next year

Intel said it will start shipping Optane DIMMs in 2018. To be marketed as "Intel persistent memory", these Optane memory modules will be launched alongside the "Cascade Lake" Xeon server processor refresh.

All these delays are sparking concern about whether the 3D XPoint memory that powers Optane is as good as it's claimed to be, but Intel insists Optane DIMM offers a lot of advantages:
Intel says that Optane DIMMs will upend the traditional "small, volatile, and expensive" view of system memory by providing a much denser and persistent way of putting data close to the processor, all at lower prices than DRAM. The company showed off these potential benefits at the SAP Sapphire conference by running the ERP giant's HANA analytics tool on a pool of Optane DIMMs. Intel says that for in-memory database apps like HANA, these DIMMs will be a no-brainer for improving performance because of the much larger data sets they'll put closer to CPUs.
