V330-15ikb - Intel Optane compatibility

2018-10-06, 8:49 AM

Hi all, I'm going to buy a v330-15ikb with i5-8250U.
Does this laptop support Intel Optane technology?
It comes with the memory already in place or I need to buy it myself?

That model does not support Intel Optane memory.  It should come with 4GB memory soldered to the motherboard.

Storage
Some: M.2 SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s

Some: M.2 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4, 32Gb/s

Some: HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high

you're right, in the product specification for 330s there is explicit reference to optane...
In this none. :(
I already bought it so I'll hope for a future upgrade :(

Optane memory is over rated! Return it if possible. It boosts a spinner HDD, Whippee do.

It would prefer a Samsung EVO 970 in the pci/e 3 x4 slot.

Intel Optane memory is a M.2 pci/e 3x4 SSD to boost a spinner HDD. Over rated!. I would return the item for refund if possible.

I would put a Samsung EVO 970 in the pci/e 3x4 slot.

I didn't understood: you are suggesting to return the product?
I saw that a 512 GB ssd m.2 ssd is close to 80$, I know that isn't fast as an Optane memory but in the future will boost this laptop

Sorry for the confusion.  You stated you already bought it, ie the machine.  I was thinking you also bought Intel Optane memory part elsewhere.

 

Enjoy your new machine.

No problem ;)
I only bought the laptop hoping it was Optane compliant :(
But the second choice was the 330s with i3-8130U that is Optane compliant but I preferred the i5 and after I can upgrade with real ssd and more ram.

Just a question: a 512GB ssd is 90$, is optane so important instead of changing from hdd to ssd?

In my opinion, OPTANE memory is way over rated.  It is a "booster" for a HDD spinner. Down the road, in the future, Intel will probably Upgrade OPTANE memory to something more helpful.  Current OPTANE is not memory at all.  It is a PCI/e 3x4 stick of software and "storage bins". Who wants to boost a HDD spinner when M.2 2280 PCI/e 3x4 is current state of the art? 

 

FYI: 16TB 2.5 inch SSD Samsung

I red many times that Optane is cheaper than an SSD and has big benefit.
In my opinion an SSD isn't so expensive right now so I think that loose optane compatibility to gain i5 cpu is better and I can improve my laptop in the future
