Yeah your right, the Optane would be a pure Luxury, Gigabyte does make good looking MB, do you think 16 gigs of ram is enough? Ram prices are not good. I have a gadget on my desktop and I've never seen over 6 gigs of ram being used?

Thanks FV. Yes I have. It's a EATX. Too much room needed.

Have you seen this jewel?

Re: Intel Optane SSD 900P 480GB NVME 3D XPoint!

No it's not. Although I could jam one in if I had to.

Let us not forget the Z390 Refresh. That might have an impact on Optane too. As well as new boards.

That's why I am concentrating on things non chipset related. Too early for anything else.

Since my GTX 970 is performing flawlessly in Wolfenstein II, I may just hold off on the 1070 TI till prices drop further.

That's why I'm looking at the X299 more options that direction...

Re: Intel Optane SSD 900P 480GB NVME 3D XPoint!

You know that Optane ssd will work in our motherboards, its just a nvme ssd with optane chips and should work....I'll have to check on that I read that over at Overclock.net. Anadtech used a H170 motherboard for testing, and that board supports 5 and 6th gen I7...

Re: Intel Optane SSD 900P 480GB NVME 3D XPoint!

Tom's Test bed for this type of drive indicates a Z97?

I think future iterations of this drive will interface/optimize with the Optane on the mobo. Just a guess!

That's even better, it will work on our motherboards!

Re: Intel Optane SSD 900P 480GB NVME 3D XPoint!

Yeah I'm not buying that my X99 could not run the new Intel card. There is nothing special in the Skylake-X CPU or the mobo. Like y'all mentioned, it is going into a PCI slot.

I would love to trade mine out for a black one lol.

Re: Intel Optane SSD 900P 480GB NVME 3D XPoint!

Here's the motherboard Anandtech used in the review....DDR4 Non-Z OC
Overclocking DDR4 memory modules is no longer limited to Z170 models. With ASRock’s DDR4 Non-Z OC users may overclock the memory of H170/Q170/B150/H110/C232 models using certain memory sticks, such as Kingston or Samsung memory DIMMs. The enhanced CAS latency brings up to 5% performance boost.

ASRock > Fatal1ty E3V5 Performance Gaming/OC

They have the specs of the testbed listed on their site somewhere. I just wanted someone to verify. On my phone now and it is harder find the link.
