Intel reveals App Direct mode and Memory mode for Optane DC Persistent Memory

Originally published at:

Intel has started a beta test of Optane DC Persistent Memory for OEM customers. Together with the beta, the chip giant has also introduced two different operating modes for the 3D Xpoint based memory. In Memory Mode, Optane works like DRAM, where data is gone when the system is powered down. In App Direct Mode, the data remains stored even when the system is powered down.
