7 Ways Intel Optane Speeds Up HP PCs
July 10, 2018
Everyone likes having a faster PC, and with technology developing at an always-rapid pace, it’s only right that we would expect lightning-fast processing and faster boot times in our latest computer purchase.
One of the most lauded innovations in this field is Intel® Optane™, a memory upgrade that symbol2users have been looking forward to for a long time. With updates to storage capacity, speed, and security, Optane™ will help your HP business computer perform at a much higher rate than you’ve previously experienced.
Here are seven ways Intel® has changed the game with its memory update, and how you can expect it to affect your HP computer.
1. Better media storage
Your pictures, video, and music can take up a lot of space, which causes your computer to run more slowly. While saving to a cloud system offers extra space, it can be more reassuring to have important files stored on your hard drive.
Intel® took that into account and designed a system with a memory controller and advanced software IP. More processing memory means it’s easier and faster to enjoy your media by allowing you to download and upload files more quickly. Optane™ offers 3.9x the loading speed as its predecessors and up to 32GB of increased storage.
2. Better data storage
Media isn’t the only type of file that benefits from upgraded memory technology. Vast amounts of data can take up plenty of room on your system, especially if you’re interested in Bitcoin and cryptocurrency mining or other work that needs high computing power.
Intel® Optane™ technology keeps data closer to the processor, which helps boost performance where needed, especially when using more intensive programs. Intel® focused on making sure this upgrade would get the job done for numerous fields that rely on higher performance loads, such as cryptocurrency mining.
3. A responsive data center
If you’ve noticed slower response times with your computer, it may be because you are experiencing bottlenecking with your memory. Intel® has worked to fix this problem by introducing the Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X.
This SSD can be extremely helpful if you are running a business and need to store a large amount of files or information. This new data center allows you to track what type of data is causing performance issues and how you can decrease the likelihood of bottlenecking with larger pools of memory.
4. Better driver for creativity
The good news for creatives is that their jobs can become much easier with Intel® Optane™ tech. That’s especially true for those who end up spending (or wasting) time trying to access and save large files on a regular basis.
The Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P has been built with this in mind. Whether you are just learning the ropes of editing large photo or video files, or you are an expert in the industry, this new processing ability can save you a lot of time and make your job much easier.
It can also increase the performance of creative software, giving you the chance to create more quickly and more effectively.
5. Better gaming
Your favorite games often require plenty of processing power in order to run without lag. Intel® recommends the Optane™ SSD 900P or 905P for faster loading times, depending on the type of games that you prefer to play and your expectations for graphics.
Regardless, this new technology can decrease the chances of performance bottlenecks while it provides an easier gaming experience without any breaks or slow loading times, allowing you to be fully immersed and truly enjoy your games.
When you add Optane™ to an existing high-powered gaming setup, you’ll see why gamers often choose this combination for the reassurance that there won’t be any issues in the middle of a campaign.
6. Better security
When you’re running higher-capacity servers, there is a lot more data at risk. Security is an important part of running a business in a number of industries, and an extra layer of reassurance never hurts.
Intel® Optane™ has changed the way files are delivered from businesses to clients by offering a solid-state model. This can benefit businesses in a number of different sectors, especially education, healthcare, and financial services.
These industries depend on making sure their client data is protected, and Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors add extra fraud detection while also making security more cost-effective.
7. Faster computing
The new Intel® technology has been created to fit to your processing needs. By determining the types of tasks where you use the most power most frequently, the Optane™ knows when to accelerate certain programs so you can get more done in a much shorter period of time.
It also “learns” which programs you use the most. Its advanced performance metrics tell it when you will need more performance. This technology adapts to suit your needs and can make launching certain software smoother and more seamless.
As you start to use your PC in new ways, it’s important to upgrade so you can have quality experiences whether you’re working or playing. With this revolutionary new tech, spending time on your HP computer is not only more efficient, but more enjoyable, too.
