The Optane 905P SSD series feature top-notch performance specifications can only really be found 3D XPoint based memory. It has read and read and write speed to 2.7GBPs and 2.2GBps respectively. In terms of Input/Output Operations Per Second, it staggers to 575,999 IOPS read and 550,000 IOPs write. Earlier PCIe based cards had a maximum storage capacity of 960GB, with Optane 905P Intel has enhanced the capacity to 1.5 terabytes. The pricing information has not been revealed by Intel for its new optane drives, however, keeping in mind the price of 960P it could cost around $1200.
