3 Statement is based the $/GB list price of Intel Optane variants available on the open market compared to the $/GB of the equivalent Micron XTR as of the date this document’s publication. Unformatted. 1GB = 1 billion bytes.
4 Statements based on comparison of the usable capacity of the Intel Optane P5800X-1.6TB SSD to the usable capacity of the Micron XTR-1.92TB SSD.
5 Based on public power consumption data for the Intel Optane P5800X-1.6TB, P5810X-800GB, P5800X-800GB and P5800X-3.2TB SSDs.
6 Based on public pricing for the Intel Optane P5800x 1.6TB compared to NAND-based SSDs of similar capacity available at the time of this document’s publication. Unformatted. 1GB = 1 billion bytes. Formatted capacity is less.
7 Micron XTR performance and endurance rating exceed requirements for the tempdb storage volume in Microsoft SQL Server with standard analytics benchmarks, based on Micron Data Center Workload Engineering team research. See the details in the Micron technical brief, ‘SQL Server Analytics Performance: XTR/6500 ION vs. Intel Optane/6500 ION’.
