  • The world's fastest SSD... Ish. (Hot Hardware)

    Intel's Optane P5800X has a 6 microsecond access time. That's about ten times faster than regular flash SSDs.

    On most benchmarks that doesn't matter. Sequential access performance is the same as a PCIe 4.0 SSD, and multi-threaded I/O too.

    Where this helps is if you have a single task that requires fast access to data. Which isn't that common; if you have a large busy database you probably have a lot of active threads.

    Optane is also good for very heavy write loads - the drive is rated for 100 drive writes per day, where an enterprise SSD might go as high as 3.

Anime of the day os Fune wo Amu, also known as The Great Passage, from 2016. It's the story of the attempt to create an entirely new Japanese dictionary. Only all the records for the existing dictionary are stored on little file cards in little boxes in a huge warehouse, and no-one really knows where to start.
