Recall that in July of this year Intel decided to cut back on the release of such devices, thereby getting rid of this line of business. In 2020, Intel reported that it lost more than $500 million by releasing 3D XPoint memory and Optane drives based on it.

The Intel Optane P5810X SSD Series includes 400GB and 800GB models. They are available in a 2.5-inch U.2 device form factor and feature a PCI Express 4.0 x4 interface.

The manufacturer claims sequential read speeds of 7200 MB/s and sequential write speeds of 5400 MB/s for the 800 GB version and 6000 MB/s for the 400 GB model for both models. The random read and write performance counter for new products is 1.5 and 1.38 million IOPS, respectively. The delay in these operations is 5 ns. As for the SSD resource, the DWPD indicator (the number of full overwrites during the day) is 100. The device has a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Nothing is known about the cost of the Optane P5810X SSDs. It’s also unclear how long the company plans to deliver them.
