The second generation of Intel’s Optane memory was introduced with improved performance and more PCIe lanes
Among the news about the 10th generation of Intel processors, this company also released the unexpected news of the Optane memory platform update. In this update, only the storage function has been updated and its capacity has not been increased.
Intel introduces the Optane M15 as the second generation memory of the fast Optane M10 which was released to the market last year. Optin memory is better known as caching-style , which helps to increase the response speed of the more frequently used files on large hard drives and SSDs helps. This memory is not designed to be used as a primary drive. With this solution, Intel improves the performance of the computer to a great extent without the need to use SSD to store all the files. This issue has been so influential that there are speculations of Sony using a similar solution in the next generation of PlayStation.

Aptin M15 memory has improved performance and adds long overdue updates to the third generation PCIe communication standard with four communication lanes (x4). Aptin M10 unbelievably only had two communication paths (Lane) of the third generation of PCIe.
According to Intel, the new generation of Aptin has speeds of 2000 and 900 MB/s respectively in the modes It has reading (read) and writing (write), which performs much better than M10 with speeds of 1450 and 640 MB/s respectively in similar situations. It is worth noting that this memory is much better in terms of the area it covers each time. Intel says the M15’s random read and write numbers are 450,000 and 220,000, respectively, compared to 250,000 and 140,000. >,000 is much more than the previous generation.
Although it seems that the best feature of the second generation of Aptin memory is the improvement of their PCIe communication paths, but the performance improvement is also significant.
Aptin M15 memory has a 5-year warranty and is expected to write 365TB of data over its lifetime. According to the giant of the processor world, the capacity of these drives will be 16, 32 and 64 GB. Although the exact date and price of these memories have not been announced, they will probably be released on the market in the third quarter of this year.
