FYI - the latency of Optane 800P looked quite interesting
Latency of 900P looked even better
Pretty much the same deal again with P4800X
Most likely P1600X should be a fairly safe bet then?
It would definitely be nice as a small time slum-SLOG. According to Intel Arc these even have slightly better latency values than the 4801X did. The on paper write IOPS are also almost 200K higher. With all the other “consumer” (read below $1K / unit) optane options being killed off, I bet this will be $400. lol. Your move Intel.
The ones available on eBay are used while the rest should be brand new, thankfully both 58GB and 118GB models should be no longer unobtainium at the moment
About 100 bucks or so for 58GB, plenty of room for booting PE while adding quite a bit of software.
Though Optane might not be all that sustainable for Intel's pocket?
Intel’s Optane business suffered over half a billion dollars’ worth of losses over the course of 2020 according to figures drawn from Intel’s official 10K SEC filing. The figures come via Blocks and Losses (with thanks to Tom’s Hardware). Blocks and Losses goes on to speculate that the losses continue into 2021. If the predicted $529 million operating loss in 2021 is accurate, then the already shrinking Optane business is down well over a billion dollars over the last two years.
