A smart and adaptable system accelerator that customizes your computing experience, providing a new level of speed and responsiveness.
Optimize your 7th (or later) Gen Intel Core processor-based system with Intel Optane memory, a smart and adaptable system accelerator that adjusts to your computing tasks–increasing system responsiveness and performance. Its intelligent software automatically learns your computing behaviors to accelerate frequent tasks and customize your computer experience, making everything you do noticeably faster, smoother and easier.
A high-capacity SATA storage device, like an HDD, coupled with Intel Optane memory offers the best of both worlds. High-speed acceleration and affordable, large storage capacity enable you to quickly and easily access frequently used files and applications so you can launch large projects quickly and stay on task.
Intel Optane memory in your new 7th (or later) Gen Intel Core processor-based system delivers amazing responsiveness so you can start up quickly, search and find files up to 4 times faster6,7,8 and save large files with virtually no lag. Experience up to 5.8 times faster email application launch4,5,6,8, and rev up your gameplay with an up to 67% improvement in loading the next level.3,7,8,9
Includes how-to in a properly configured system:
- Install the Intel Optane Memory application (2:34)
- Enable Intel Optane Memory for system acceleration (4:31)
- Disable Intel Optane Memory for system acceleration (6:47)

Delivered by Intel, one of the industry's most trusted technology innovators, Intel Optane memory unleashes new experiences for the PC user demanding affordable high-performance responsiveness and large capacities.
There are cost efficient ways of maximizing storage capacity and increasing the overall performance of your computer. Intel Optane memory in a computer with a hard disk drive [HDD] delivers SSD-like performance11 without the hassle of moving applications manually like in a dual drive configuration. Your most frequently used tasks are accelerated automatically so you can get things done faster, smoother, easier.10,12
Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to www.intel.com/benchmarks.
Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.
1 SYSmark 2014 SE (Responsiveness Subscore). Benchmark from the BAPCo* consortium that measures the performance of Windows* platforms. SYSmark* tests four usage scenarios: Office Productivity, Media Creation, Data/Financial Analysis, and Responsiveness. SYSmark* contains real applications from Independent Software Vendors such as Microsoft* and Adobe*.
2 Browser Launch Workload. Workload developed by Intel measuring the time elapsed to launch Google* Chrome.
3 Game Launch & Level Load Workload – Time elapsed to launch Bethesda Softworks* Fallout 4 and reach the Main Menu with intro videos disabled (Launch), and the time elapsed from the Main Menu to completion of level loading (Level Load).
4 Email Launch Workload. Workload developed by Intel measuring the time elapsed to launch Microsoft* Outlook 2016 and load with a 250mb local data file.
5 Presentation Launch Workload. Time elapsed to launch the Microsoft* Powerpoint 2016 application with a 3.5MB presentation file.
6 Media Project Load Workload. Time elapsed to load a 500MB video project file in Adobe* Premiere Pro (CS6).
7 Tested on Intel Core i5-7500 Processor, 65W TDP, 4C4T, Turbo up to 3.8GHz, Memory: 2x4GB DDR4-2400, Storage: Western Digital* 1TB 7200RPM WD1003FZEX, Intel HD Graphics 630, OS: Windows* 10 as measured against the same system with a 16GB Intel Optane memory module.
8 Tested with 16GB Intel Optane Memory Engineering Samples. Results may vary in final product, but we have a high confidence level that there will be no significant differences in performance.
9 Gaming workloads were tested with same configuration, except using a discrete graphics card (NVIDIA* (EVGA) GTX 1080) with and without 16GB Intel Optane Memory Module.
10 SYSmark* 2014 SE (Responsiveness Subscore) — benchmark from the BAPCo* consortium that measures the performance of Windows* platforms. SYSmark* tests four usage scenarios: Office Productivity, Media Creation, Data/Financial Analysis, and Responsiveness. SYSmark* contains real applications from Independent Software Vendors such as Microsoft* and Adobe*.
11 PCMark* Vantage - Benchmark from Futuremark* that measures Windows* everyday computing performance. PCMark Vantage is made up of several benchmarking suites: PCMark Suite (produces "PCMark" Score), Memories Suite, TV and Movies Suite, Gaming Suite, Music Suite, Communications Suite, Productivity Suite and HDD Suite. The HDD Suite contains an operating system start-up workload that is sensitive to HDD versus SSD boot devices
