Intel® Optane™ SSD

The Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P is designed for the most demanding storage workloads, delivering high random read/write performance coupled with ultra-low latency and Industry-leading endurance. Built with Intel® Optane™ technology, a revolutionary class of non-volatile memory, the Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P is empowering professional users, content creators, and enthusiasts to extract greater platform performance.

The Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P provides an industry-leading 10 DWPD (Drive Writes per Day), making it the highest endurance client SSD in the market today. Professionals with the most demanding storage workloads can now tackle even bigger projects with peace of mind, counting on years of performance without the need for frequent drive replacements.

Thunderbolt Connectivity

Thunderbolt™ 3

Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps, creating one compact port that does it all – delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. For the first time, one computer port connects to Thunderbolt devices, every display, and billions of USB devices. A single cable now provides four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other cable, while also supplying power to bus-powered devices.

The Node Lite with Intel® Optane™ SSD has two Thunderbolt 3 ports. The second port operates the same as a Thunderbolt 3 computer port by supporting Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy-chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices.

DisplayPort

The dedicated DisplayPort connector makes it easy to connect an additional monitor to extend your workspace. This video output capability requires a Thunderbolt 3 connection to the computer and will free up the second Thunderbolt 3 port for Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy-chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and DisplayPort devices.

Benchmark

The transfer speeds for this benchmark were obtained using the AJA System Test tool with 4GB test files at 5K resolution. These results closely reflect the real-world performance but the actual transfer rates can vary depending on the test environment

Performance

The maximum speed for the Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P is up to 2600 MB/s for sequential read and 2200 MB/s for sequential write. In order to achieve the best possible transfer rates, the Node Lite should be connected directly to the computer. If any other devices are connected to the Node Lite, either through the second Thunderbolt 3 port in a daisy chain or through the DisplayPort, the Thunderbolt 3 bandwidth is shared and the performance of the SSD will be reduced.
