Billy Tallis at AnandTech reviews the “Intel Optane Memory M10 (64GB)” using BAPCo’s SYSmark 2014 SE benchmark.
According to AnandTech, “The Responsiveness test is less focused on overall computational throughput and more on those annoying delays that make a computer feel slow: application launching, opening and saving files, and a variety of multitasking scenarios. Here, moving off a mechanical hard drive is by far the best upgrade that can be made to improve system performance. Going beyond a mainstream SATA SSD provides diminishing returns, but there is a measurable difference between the SATA SSD and the fastest Optane SSD.”
