Not going to succeed.
Jim Handy writes that the expectation for Optane SSDs was that “the new memory should have performance close to that of DRAM and a price close to that of NAND. Instead, what Intel has announced is an SSD whose performance is close to that of NAND flash at a price that is close to that of DRAM.”
This, added to the fact that it is only avalible in 16GB and 32GB sizes, is why I can't see optane being used. If it had a speed between SSD and RAM, then some poeple could justify a cost between the two. As it stands this is a dead duck. A samsung NVMe SSD is already limited by the speed of the four PCIe lanes it has the Optane disk only has 2 Lanes so I can't see how it can match performance, and is avalible up to 2TB.
When I first came acrros the Optane term I did a google to find out what it was, but could only find marketing misinformation about it, so was sceptical, now I know it is useless.
