SSD performance on a hard drive

Intel® Optane™ Memory is a unique component for your PC that boosts hard drives so they have the speed and performance of SSD drives, but with all the storage space you'd expect from a HDD drive.

Don't be held back by loading

Perfect for gaming PCs, Optane™ is a great addition to your HDD drive, so you can load games much faster and get back to where you left off (instead of waiting while a loading screen finishes). And even when you're in-game, levels will load faster and you won't be held back as the game progresses.

Enhance your everyday programs

It's not just games that will be accelerated - Intel® Optane™ speeds up everything you do, from opening emails and saving a document, to opening a downloaded film.

Intel® Optane™ also enhances your productivity, by learning and remembering the programs you use most, so when you want to access Photoshop each morning it will open in a flash.

Makes HDDs as almost or just as fast as SSDs in Windows..
But to make it work, a fresh install of Windows IS a requirement and a bit technical..

The install and setup of the component was really bad I had to reinstall windows 10 on a fresh copy complete format to set it up, this was not an easy plug n play like it was suppose to be
