Intel Launches Optane Memory M.2 Cache SSDs For Consumer Market

Last week, Intel officially launched their first Optane product, the SSD DC P4800X enterprise drive. This week, 3D XPoint memory comes to the client and consumer market in the form of the Intel Optane Memory product, a low-capacity M.2 NVMe SSD intended for use as a cache drive for systems using a mechanical hard drive for primary storage.

The Intel Optane Memory SSD uses one or two single-die packages of 3D XPoint non-volatile memory to provide capacities of 16GB or 32GB. The controller gets away with a much smaller package than most SSDs (especially PCIe SSD) since it only supports two PCIe 3.0 lanes and does not have an external DRAM interface. Because only two PCIe lanes are used by the drive, it is keyed to support M.2 type B and M slots. This keying is usually used for M.2 SATA SSDs while M.2 PCIe SSDs typically use only the M key position to support four PCIe lanes. The Optane Memory SSD will not function in a M.2 slot that provides only SATA connectivity. Contrary to some early leaks, the Optane Memory SSD uses the M.2 2280 card size instead of one of the shorter lengths. This makes for one of the least-crowded M.2 PCBs on the market even with all of the components on the top side.

The very low capacity of the Optane Memory drives limits their usability as traditional SSDs. Intel intends for the drive to be used with the caching capabilities of their Rapid Storage Technology drivers. Intel first introduced SSD caching with their Smart Response Technology in 2011. The basics of Optane Memory caching are mostly the same, but under the hood Intel has tweaked the caching algorithms to better suit 3D XPoint memory's performance and flexibility advantages over flash memory. Optane Memory caching is currently only supported on Windows 10 64-bit and only for the boot volume. Booting from a cached volume requires that the chipset's storage controller be in RAID mode rather than AHCI mode so that the cache drive will not be accessible as a standard NVMe drive and is instead remapped to only be accessible to Intel's drivers through the storage controller. This NVMe remapping feature was first added to the Skylake-generation 100-series chipsets, but boot firmware support will only be found on Kaby Lake-generation 200-series motherboards and Intel's drivers are expected to only permit Optane Memory caching with Kaby Lake processors.

Intel Optane Memory Specifications
Capacity 16 GB 32 GB
Form Factor M.2 2280 single-sided
Interface PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe
Controller Intel unnamed
Memory 128Gb 20nm Intel 3D XPoint
Typical Read Latency 6 µs
Typical Write Latency 16 µs
Random Read (4 KB, QD4) 300k
Random Write (4 KB, QD4) 70k
Sequential Read (QD4) 1200 MB/s
Sequential Write (QD4) 280 MB/s
Endurance 100 GB/day
Power Consumption 3.5 W (active), 0.9-1.2 W (idle)
MSRP $44 $77
Release Date April 24

Intel has published some specifications for the Optane Memory drive's performance on its own. The performance specifications are the same for both capacities, suggesting that the controller has only a single channel interface to the 3D XPoint memory. The read performance is extremely good given the limitation of only one or two memory devices for the controller to work with, but the write throughput is quite limited. Read and write latency are very good thanks to the inherent performance advantage of 3D XPoint memory over flash. Endurance is rated at just 100GB of writes per day, for both 16GB and 32GB models. While this does correspond to 3-6 DWPD and is far higher than consumer-grade flash based SSDs, 3D XPoint memory was supposed to have vastly higher write endurance than flash and neither of the Optane products announced so far is specified for game-changing endurance. Power consumption is rated at 3.5W during active use, so heat shouldn't be a problem, but the idle power of 0.9-1.2W is a bit high for laptop use, especially given that there will also be a hard drive drawing power.

Intel's vision is for Optane Memory-equipped systems to offer a compelling performance advantage over hard drive-only systems for a price well below an all-flash configuration of equal capacity. The 16GB Optane Memory drive will retail for $44 while the 32GB version will be $77. As flash memory has declined in price over the years, it has gotten much easier to purchase SSDs that are large enough for ordinary use: 256GB-class SSDs start at around the same price as the 32GB Optane Memory drive, and 512GB-class drives are about the same as the combination of a 2TB hard drive and the 32GB Optane Memory. The Optane Memory products are squeezing into a relatively small niche for limited budgets that require a lot of storage and want the benefit of solid state performance without paying the full price of a boot SSD. Intel notes that Optane Memory caching can be used in front of hybrid drives and SATA SSDs, but the performance benefit will be smaller and these configurations are not expected to be common or cost effective.

The Optane Memory SSDs are now available for pre-order and are scheduled to ship on April 24. Pre-built systems equipped with Optane Memory should be available around the same time. Enthusiasts with large budgets will want to wait until later this year for Optane SSDs with sufficient capacity to use as primary storage. True DIMM-based 3D XPoint memory products are on the roadmap for next year.

Quick Look: Comparing Vulkan & DX12 API Overhead on 3DMark

Earlier this week the crew over at Futuremark released a major update to their API Overhead testing tool, which is built into the larger 3DMark testing suite. The API Overhead tool, first rolled out in 2015, is a relatively straightforward test that throws increasingly large number of draw calls at a system to see how many calls a system can sustain. The primary purpose of the tool is to show off the vast improvement in draw call performance afforded by modern, low-level APIs that can efficiently spread their work over multiple threads, as opposed to classic APIs like DirectX 11 which are essentially single-threaded and have a high degree of overhead within that sole thread.

The latest iteration of the API Overhead test, now up to version 1.5, has added support for Vulkan, making it one of the first feature-level benchmarks to add support for the API. Khronos’s take on a low-level API – and a decedent of sorts of Mantle – Vulkan has been available now for just a bit over a year. However outside of a very successful outing with Doom, in the PC ream it has been flying somewhat under the radar, as few other games have (meaningfully) implemented support for the API thus far. By the end of 2017 we should be seeing some wider support for the API, but for the moment it’s still in the process of finding its footing among PC developers.

In any case, like OpenGL versus Direct3D 9/10/11 before it, there’s a lot of curiosity (and arguments) over which API is better. Now that Futuremark is supporting the API for their Overhead test, let’s take a quick look at how the two APIs compare here, and whether one API offers lower overhead than the other.

CPU: Intel Core i7-4960X @ 4.2GHz
Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty X79 Professional
Power Supply: Corsair AX1200i
Hard Disk: Samsung SSD 840 EVO (750GB)
Memory: G.Skill RipjawZ DDR3-1866 4 x 8GB (9-10-9-26)
Case: NZXT Phantom 630 Windowed Edition
Monitor: Asus PQ321
Video Cards: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition
AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB
Video Drivers: NVIDIA Release 378.92
AMD Radeon Software Crimson 17.3.3
OS: Windows 10 Pro

As a reminder for the API Overhead test, this is not a cross-system test or even a cross-GPU test. The purpose of the test is solely to measure overhead within a single setup. In practice it’s something of a combined GPU and driver test, as depending on where the bottleneck lies, the limiting factor can be CPU overhead from the driver or just outright hitting the limits of the GPU’s command processor.

The purpose of the test is to compare API performance on a single system. It should not be used to compare component performance across different systems. Specifically, this test should not be used to compare graphics cards, since the benefit of reducing API overhead is greatest in situations where the CPU is the limiting factor.

With that out of the way, let’s start somewhere in the middle of the pack with the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB.

3DMark API Overhead Feature Test: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060

Going into this I was not expecting Vulkan and DX12 overhead to be meaningfully different, so having run the GTX 1060 6GB first, it definitely caught me by surprise that Vulkan’s overhead was so much lower. The net result is that using the Vulkan API, the GTX 1060 can sustain 26.4M draw calls per second, 32% more than DirectX 12. And to be sure, this is consistent across multiple runs.

However before jumping to conclusions, let’s take a look at a couple of other cards.

3DMark API Overhead Feature Test: AMD Radeon RX 480

AMD’s fastest GCN4 card and card most comparable to the GTX 1060 is the Radeon RX 480 8GB. Running the API Overhead test on this card produces something notably different from the GTX 1060. Rather than finding Vulkan well in the lead, we get not quite the inverse: DX12 is holding a small lead at 26M draw calls versus 24.9M draw calls.

The two obvious differences here are the GPU and driver – in other words, the two things that matter the most – and is why cross-GPU results are not directly comparable. However it does go to show that whatever is causing Vulkan to perform better on the GTX 1060 is not a consistent factor. Switching things up can easily put Vulkan performance on the back foot.

3DMark API Overhead Feature Test: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

Finally, to give the test as much GPU power as possible, I’ve also gone ahead and run it on NVIDIA’s recently released GTX 1080 Ti. This gives us a datapoint where GPU bottlenecking has been reduced as much as possible, and also gives us another datapoint with NVIDIA’s driver set.

The results still put Vulkan in the lead, but not by anywhere near what we saw on the GTX 1060. 32.4M calls versus 31.3M calls is a much narrower 4% difference between the APIs. What this does hint at is that on NVIDIA cards, the Vulkan API path has an edge in overhead, but even within just the NVIDIA ecosystem it’s not a massive difference. As with the AMD RX 480, for the GTX 1080 Ti this is essentially a draw between the two APIs. Which to be fair, is what we’d expect to find.

Overall the latest 3DMark API Overhead benchmark proved both reassuring, and more interesting than I was expecting to find. At a high level, neither Vulkan nor DirectX 12 hold a consistent lead with regards to API overhead, which indicates that both AMD and NVIDIA have done a good job optimizing their drivers and runtimes for this API. And more to the point, no matter the API used, it’s still vastly more efficient than DirectX 11, to the point where the draw call throughput is significantly greater than anything a developer could hope to use in the real world.

However the GTX 1060 results present an interesting anomaly, with the Vulkan API path showcasing noticeably lower overhead. I do have to stress that this is absolutely academic – these low-level feature tests are designed to test one small aspect of a GPU/system, and game performance won’t be anything like this – but it is an unexpected find that hints that Vulkan and DX12 may not be so neck-and-neck at all times on NVIDIA cards. The question we’re left to ponder is whether this is product of NVIDIA’s drivers, or if there’s something at the API level that just maps a bit better to NVIDIA’s command processor…

Dell’s 32-inch 8K UP3218K Display Now For Sale: Check Your Wallet

Back at CES in January, Dell announced the next step in personal screen resolution advancements. The recent rise of ‘4K’ (or more accurately, Ultra-HD at 3840x2160) monitors has shown that there is a demand for high resolution interfaces beyond a smartphone. Back when UHD monitors in a 16:9 format launched en masse, prices were high ($3500-5000+) and stocks were limited – I remember back in 2013 testing the Sharp 32-inch 4K display at a vendor in Taiwan several years ago in one of the first pieces to test 4K/UHD gaming. The fact that this was the only UHD monitor that GIGABYTE had in their HQ was a testament to how new the technology was. Now, 24-inch UHD displays can be had for as little as $350. We may see history repeat itself with 8K monitors from today.

As always, the first Dell monitors off the production line are designed to be high-end professional monitors. The UP3218K goes in at higher than average specifications, such as 1300:1 contrast ratio, 400 nits brightness, but also offers 100% AdobeRGB, 100% RGB and 98% DCI-P3. The UP3218K is part of Dell’s UltraSharp range, which means we should expect the monitor to be color calibrated out of the box to within a given dE value, typically dE < 3.

Naturally a question pops up as to how to hook an 8K display up, especially will all the bells and whistles. The display uses two DP1.4 inputs to provide enough bandwidth, which means that we’re typically dealing with the internal controller stitching together two 3840x4320 displays, similar to how the early 4K monitors did (but with a few more years experience on how to do it). It is possible that Dell supports a single DP1.4 cable, which would most likely use Display Stream Compression 1.2 to offer a visually lossless image as a single panel, however one may suspect that given the target market for this panel, a truly lossless image is probably preferred, even when dealing with two input streams. Having two input streams also means support of 98% DCI-P3.

Overall an 8K monitor offers 33.2 megapixels of coverage, which in a 32-inch (31.5-inch) form factor gives 280 pixels per inch. 33.2 megapixels is four times that of UHD, which is 8.3 megapixels. Users wanting to play some AAA titles at 8K on this beast are going to run into walls with memory bandwidth very quickly, however eSports titles should run OK. Using some undocumented tricks, a pair of tests in our new set of gaming benchmarks for CPU reviews can render at 8K or even 16K without needing a monitor, so you might see some numbers in due course showing where we stand with GPU power on this technology. It’s worth noting that Raja Koduri, SVP of AMD’s Radeon Technology Group, has stated that VR needs 16K per-eye at 144 Hz to emulate the human experience, so we're still a way off in the display technology reaching consumer price points at least.

From 2013 to 2016, the prices of UHD monitors fell from $3500-$5000 to $350-$500. Extrapolating this, users wanting an 8K panel on their desk in a more comfortable price bracket might have to wait until 2020 or so to get one. By then, 16K might exist, back at the $5000 price point. Maybe.

Dell’s UP3218K is now available to purchase on Dell’s website for $4999. Currently taking pre-orders, the estimated shipping date is set as April 17th for US50. Linus from LinusTechTips should be happy, as they just invested in a pair of 8K video cameras. Time to submit my own acquisition request…
