Intel plans to take Intel Optane series storage memory to a whole new level. The company yesterday issued a press release announcing a new solid state drive (SSD) called Introduced the P5800X. Intel claims the P5800X is the fastest SSD in the world.
The new model of Optin series SSDs uses a modern PCIe 4.0 interface, is equipped with the second generation of Optane Memory Media architecture, and has a new controller to show amazing performance and serve the user for a long time.
The 5800X SSD has a threefold improved read / write speed compared to its predecessor, the Optane DC P4800X, which is an admirable improvement. Intel says its new SSD drive (IOPS) means a maximum of 1.5 million in 4K resolution.
The 5800X also has three times the read and write speeds of its predecessor (up to 7.2 GB / s). The new Intel drive has a maximum of 4.6 million IPs in 512 bytes of random tasks, which is important for some types of data storage. In addition to the combined tasks, the P5800X’s i-ops reach 1.8 million.
In addition, the Intel drive in question is up to 67 times more data-resistant than the first-generation P4800X, and will break down later, according to Intel’s DWPD (SSD limit on writing and erasing data) to write 100 times. Every day comes a staggering number. This makes the P5800X the most durable SSD on the market. There are several common NAND-based SSDs on the market with up to 10 DWPDs; This means that the P5800X is at a much higher level.
The Intel P5800X is not only the fastest SSD in the world, but also the most durable SSD.
As mentioned above, the P5800X relies on the second-generation Optane Memory Media, which, unlike the previous generation, uses two decks instead of one (Deck) Called the Deck). The Intel drive also features a new PCIe 4.0 x4 controller, which indicates that the Blue Team has finally decided to say goodbye to the PCIe 3.0 interface.
Intel has not yet shared more detailed specifications of the new PCIe 4.0 SSD P5800X controller with the media. However, we know that the new Intel drive is expected to be available in U2 form factor with a capacity of 400 GB or 800 GB or 1.6 TB or 3.2 TB, which means that it has more than twice as much storage memory as the DC P4800X.
Like other Optin-based drives, advanced XPoint 3D technology makes the P5800X faster and more durable than all NAND-based SSDs; In other words, the performance level of the new Intel drive is such that it places it between Flash SSDs and system memory.

Intel’s new drive is designed to have outstanding QoS (quality of service) compared to rival NAND-based drives; Explaining that performance is a key issue in the Intel P5800X drive, the SSD speed does not slow down after a while. The P4800X offered more stable performance than any other drive on the market, but Intel says the P5800X’s stable performance has improved by as much as 40 percent.
Perhaps one of the most valuable features of early SSD drives is their ability to deliver very stable performance when performing heavy-duty tasks. With more than eight gigabytes per second of operating power when doing heavy work, the P5800X takes it to a whole new level and easily obsoles all NAND-based SSDs. Intel also says its new drive has very little performance latency.
Intel has not yet mentioned the final price of the P5800X, but says the process of delivering the drives to business partners has begun. The new Intel SSD is compatible with AMD EPYC processors. Intel also unveiled a new SLC QLC yesterday, saying it plans to produce a 5-bit cellular PLC SSD flash drive in the near future.
