Intel's new next-gen laptop hybrid SSD is on the way – Windows Central

Intel OptaneSource: Intel
Intel has announced a new memory and storage hybrid solution for laptops, entitled “Intel Optane memory H20 with solid state storage.” It’s a name that, while not exactly easy to roll off the tongue, is aggressively functional in getting the point across — it’s an SSD-memory stick fusion.
It’s slated to have two different capacities out of the gate:
Here’s how Intel describes it: “By combining the best attributes of Intel Optane technology and Intel QLC 3D NAND technology, Intel Optane memory H20 brings together two revolutionary memory and storage technologies on a single M.2 2280 form factor device.”

Intel mentions it’ll be available to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) starting June 20. As this is a laptop component, don’t expect a large consumer market for this, hence the lack of a price tag in the press release. It’s being targeted at and optimized for notebooks, small form factor desktops, and all-in-one (AiO) PCs.
This isn’t the only neat technology-related development Intel’s cooked up in recent memory. Intel Labs recently redefined what photorealism means for real-time synthetic imagery generation (which includes video game graphics). Check out what the company did to Grand Theft Auto V with its research.
Sony unveiled a bunch more details about PlayStation VR2 at CES 2022, and it looks like it’s set to take on a much wider segment of the VR market. What does that mean for Windows Mixed Reality?
Microsoft has released the first Windows 11 Dev Channel build for 2022, and it’s packing a handful of notable new changes and enhancements
CES always has cool, exciting technology to show the world. But CES 2022? It had some really zesty stuff.
PC builds don’t have to be expensive. Even CPUs, which can be one of the pricier parts of a build, don’t have to break the bank.
