Intel has announced its latest addition to its Optane SSD family of products for enthusiasts and professional users. The new 800P series joins the 900P series and is designed to be used in tandem with slower spinning platter hard drive solutions to speed up overall boot and application load times.

The new Optane 800P SSDs can also be used in multiple SSD RAID configurations and support low-power states making them suitable for use in notebooks as well as desktop systems. They are compatible with the M.2 2280 form factor and use NVMe PCIe 3.0 x2 interface, whereas the 900P series require 4 lanes

The Intel Optane 800P SSDs come in 58GB and 188GB capacities and are retailing for US$130 and $200 respectively. Although slightly more expensive per gigabyte than the 900P series, the more efficient use of PCIe bandwidth could make the trade-off worthwhile.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
