The launch of the third generation of Cooper Lake, as part of the overall platform system, Intel also launched the second generation of Auteng persistent memory Optane PMem 200 series, with even more advanced specifications and performance. Intel Auster technology has memory, accelerator disk, SSD and other product forms, but their goal is not to completely replace the traditional DRAM memory, NAND flash memory, but to coexist with it, to fill the capacity, performance gap between the two, constitute a complete storage system.
The Austrazen Memory II continues to use the DDR4 DIMM product form, which Intel also calls the Persistent Memory Module/PMM.
The single capacity offers three options 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and the actual available capacity is 126.4GiB, 252.4GiB, 502.5GiB.
Thermal design power consumption is 15W, 18W, 18W, the highest temperature of 84 degrees C, if reached 85 degrees C will automatically shut down, the external also specially installed “cooling armor.”
On a three-generation scalable X-E-Max platform, Auzen memory can be used in conjunction with traditional DDR4 memory, with 12 slots per six channels and up to six Austratos memory installed.
With a total capacity of up to 3TB, plus 6 256GB DDR4 memory, the total memory capacity of a single system can reach a staggering 4.5TB.
Auten’s persistent memory is not very frequent, with four options — 1866MHz, 2133MHz, 2400MHz, 2666MHz – but the bandwidth is 25% higher than the previous generation.
15W 256B read and write bandwidth is up to 6.8GB/s, 2.3GB/s, and 15W 64B read and write bandwidth is 0.58GB/s, 1.75GB/s. In addition, atypical persistent memory is up to 225 times faster than mainstream NAND flash memory.
Auton’s persistent memory is a novelty, adapting from programming to applications, but with Intel’s powerful appeal, the ecological development is also very smooth. More than 270 related products have been deployed in fortune 500 companies.
In domestic enterprises, Jinshan Yun, Quick Hand, Ping An Cloud, Zhongtong Express are all part of the long-lasting memory ecology, in addition to SoftBank, SK Telecom, Siemens and other giants, all benefit from it.
