Some Kaby Lake-Based systems will ship with Intel Optane storage solutions

Some Kaby Lake-Based systems will ship with Intel Optane storage solutions, using XPoint memory to act as a ultra-fast caching solution.



Read more on Intel's Optane XPoint Storage accelerators.

Wonder if this will actually be useful or even noticeable with a NVMe based system.

Well given how this will use an M.2 slot, I expect that nobody will use with an M.2 NMVe SSD given how few PCIe lanes desktops have at their disposal.

I do wonder how this would work with SATA SSDs though.

Depending on it's speed, it would be noticeable I'd think for sata ssds. For OS tasks it should help moreso than games. I don't expect that to change.
