Although this will ultimately complicate the life of those selling such systems, we think that the Intel Optane sticker would do just fine, ??? Intel obviously wants to push its Optane drives marketing to a whole new level.
According to Intel, SSD boot drive combined with Intel Optane memory accelerated HDD drive will create a significant performance and responsiveness boost with up to 4.7x faster level load in games and up to 1.7x faster media loads for content creators. Intel also claims that everyday tasks can be improved by up to 2.2x.
We are quite sure that plenty of notebook OEMs and system integrators will jump at this opportunity as the Core i7+ just sounds much better than the Core i7 to an average consumer.
