This thing flies. The machine Iíve I installed it in is already positively loaded: Itís got Intelís latest 6-core i7 processor, an Nvidia 1080 graphics card, and a whole mess of RAM. But this little stick of storage makes everything even faster. Intelís Optane 800P storage is likely some of the fastest storage you can buy. Itís also incredibly expensiveóthink three-and-a-half-times more expensive than an SSD. Yet the Intel Optane 800P is hardly just another storage drive. Computing on the bleeding edge will cost you.

I chuckle to myself when I read about how expensive SSDs are.  I paid $500 for my first HDD in 1986.  It was a 20MB Seagate ST-225 which worked out to $25 per MB.  I don't consider $1.69 per GB particularly expensive although it is certainly more expensive than other forms of storage.
