Without any surprises, Intel’s Optane DC modules are priced in accordance with their market positioning: well above regular SSDs, but well below DDR4 RDIMMs/LRDIMMs of the same capacity. Depending on the retailer, the Optane DC 128 GB costs $842 - $893, whereas the Intel Optane DC 256 GB is priced at $2668 - $2850. Keep in mind that these are not official MSRPs of Intel (which will likely keep its RCPs confidential as they will depend on multiple factors), but prices at which certain retailers may sell them.Intel says systems with Optane DC Persistent Memory will be available in June. It will be interesting to see how this performs, but at least for now, this is exclusively for the server space.
Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory starts at $6.57 per GB
