The Optane SSD 900P like of products are Intel’s latest PCIe NVMe 3.0 SSDs that provide faster read/write times than previous standard SATA storage solutions.

The Optane SSD 900P is available right now in both 280 and 480GB sizes. SSDs such as these are popular for animators in that they can render 3D assets extremely fast.
