Next quarter, Intel will start shipping its Optane M15 NVMe SSDs. The successor to the M10 series offers higher capacities, higher performance, as well as lower power consumption. Shipping in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB variants, these new disks promise read speeds of up to 2000MB/s, write speeds of up to 900MB/s, random 4k reads of up to 450,000 IOPS and random 4k writes of up to 220,000 IOPS. Intel offers a five-year warranty on the M15 series, the same as on the M10 line.
Intel announced Intel® Optane™ memory M15, a new generation of Intel Optane memory. Available in 2019's third quarter, Intel Optane memory M15 features higher performance and lower power than the previous generation. Combined with the 9th Gen Intel Core mobile and desktop platforms, people will experience short boot times, fast application launches, and fast gaming and browsing.
This builds on the launch of Intel Optane memory H10 with solid state storage – an innovative device that combines the responsiveness of Intel Optane technology with the storage capacity of Intel® Quad Level Cell (QLC) 3D NAND technology in a single space-saver M.2 form factor. The combination of high-speed acceleration and large SSD storage capacity on a single drive will benefit everyday PC users, whether they use their systems to create, game or work, enabling both faster access to frequently used applications and files and better responsiveness with background activity.
