Amazing Responsiveness and High Capacity Storage in an M.2 Form Factor

Key Benefits

  • Less waiting, more creation, gaming, and productivity.

  • Smart storage for faster access to most used files and apps.


Combining Intel® Optane™ technology and Intel® QLC 3D NAND storage to deliver a personalized computing experience with a new level of performance and large storage capacity.

Delivering innovation in storage through 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor-based platforms, the Intel® Optane™ memory H20 with SSD offers a personalized computing experience with a new level of performance and large storage capacity options, now available for gamers, media and content creators, everyday users, and professionals. By combining the best attributes of Intel® Optane™ technology and Intel® QLC 3D NAND technology, the Intel Optane memory H20 with solid state storage brings together two revolutionary memory and storage technologies on a single M.2 2280 form factor device.

The versatile M.2 form factor works in everything from Intel® Evo™ platform-based laptops to traditional desktops, as well as AIOs and mini-PCs. Providing improved performance and responsiveness, with lower power consumption compared to the prior generation product, Intel Optane memory H20 accelerates what you use most, from everyday tasks to managing large media and gaming files and applications.

Less Waiting, More Creation, Gaming, and Productivity

The Intel Optane memory H20 offers low latency and high performance with mixed random read/write speeds at low queue depths, and under demanding workloads. This kind of performance makes the Intel Optane memory H20 with SSD an ideal OS drive—delivering fast boot and application launch, as well as smooth multitasking.

This level of performance and responsiveness is enabled by several key improvements to this second-generation product. The improved Intel® Optane™ Media and next generation Intel 3D NAND technology deliver improved performance while new media controllers enable lower power consumption and lower latencies.1

Smart Storage for Faster Access to Most Used Files and Apps

With the intelligent Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) driver working behind the scenes, Intel Optane memory H20 with SSD recognizes and remembers content needed for important and frequent tasks—quickly accelerating them for use—providing even faster access to your frequently used data. Furthermore, as your computing habits change over time, Intel RST will adapt to ensure what you use most often has a responsive accelerated experience.
