Intel’s first Optane SSD: 375GB that you can also use as RAM | Ars Technica
3D XPoint finally has (limited) commercial availability.
Intel announced today the first Optane-branded product using its new 3D XPoint memory: the catchily named Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X. It's a 375GB SSD on a PCIe card. Initial limited availability starts today, albeit with no price attached, with broad availability in the second half of the year. In the second quarter, a 750GB PCIe model, and a 375GB model in the U.2 form factor will be released, and in the second half of the year, a 1.5TB PCIe card, and 750GB and 1.5TB U.2 stick, are planned.
3D XPoint is a new kind of persistent solid state memory devised by Intel and Micron. Details on how the memory actually works remain scarce—it's generally believed to use some kind of change in resistance to record data—but its performance characteristics and technical capabilities make it appealing for a wide range of applications.

How to securely recycle or dispose of your SSD
The easiest way to make sure the data on your SSD is unrecoverable is not to erase at all, but to encrypt it. Without having the passphrase or encryption key to recover from, any data on that drive is useless to anyone that finds it.

Apple’s FileVault is encryption software included with macOS. Microsoft’s built-in encryption software for Windows is called BitLocker. Both systems are full-disk encryption methods, so anything you’ve stored on your hard disk is safe from prying eyes unless you type in a passphrase or key to decrypt the data.

Reformat the drive and you should be safe – any data on there is unrecoverable without that encryption key. If you want to rest even easier, re-encrypt the drive after the format, then reformat again.

How to Securely Dispose of an SSD
Solid State Drives (SSD) work a little differently than hard drive and no amount of drilling holes, degaussing, or zeroing out will actually properly secure the SSD. If you need to get rid of an SSD, you have a couple options, encrypt or shred. Here’s what you need to know.

Western Digital Blue 1Tb SSD review
Western Digital is a brand name that has always been associated with computer storage, though traditionally the mechanical kind as opposed to the increasingly prevalent flash kind. WD made the fundamental leap in 2015 with the announcement that they would purchase flash memory giant Sandisk. This transformed WD into a storage powerhouse with a product...
