3D XPoint technology was unveiled by Intel and Micron in August 2015, creating the first new memory category in more than 25 years. When Intel announced the Optane brand for storage products based on 3D XPoint technology, it would first come to market in a new line of high-endurance, high-performance Intel SSDs beginning in 2016.
XPoint, a phase change memory (PCM) from TechInsights materials analysis, is a non-volatile memory (NVM) technology. Bit storage is based on a change of bulk resistance, in conjunction with a stackable cross-gridded data access array. Price is intended to be less than dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) but more than flash memory.
