GIGABYTE at this year’s Computex showcases its newest Z370 motherboards with an Intel 32GB Optane memory that can not only eliminate the need for SSD but also improve overall system performance.
The latest GIGABYTE motherboards for Intel processors are all based on the Z370 flagship chipset, yet they are not really new, and there’s just a 32GB Optane memory pre-installed on them. New models include the Z370 AORUS GAMING 7-OP, Z370 AORUS ULTRA GAMING WIFI-OP, Z370 AORUS ULTRA GAMING 2.0-OP and Z370 HD3-OP, which are split with OP extensions from ordinary models.
The advantage of Optane memory technology over ordinary SSDs is to increase the speed of reading and writing hard drives that eliminates the need for high-capacity SSDs. Since SSDs are generally less expensive and more expensive than hard drives, gamers frequently use them to install operating systems and applications, but Optane improves hard drive speed, which can also increase play speeds and games. The combination of an eighth generation processor with an Optane drive is known as + Core.
But what distinguishes GIGABYTE motherboards from similar examples is the 32GB version of Optane. Almost all of the same products come with the 16GB version. GIGABYTE has also installed a dedicated heat generator on the Optane drive.
