South Korean tech heavyweight Samsung Electronics Co. said Tuesday it will roll out a new notebook computer equipped with Intel's hyper-fast memory module next month.
The Samsung Notebook 5, slated to be unveiled in South Korea and China at the end of August, will have a basic 8GB DDR4 memory module and be additionally equipped with Intel's 16GB Optane memory module.
Optane is Intel's trademarked term for a new class of extremely fast memory modules, which makes the speed of reading hard disk drives (HDD) faster by serving as a cache that's capable of storing and utilizing often-used data.
Intel's Optane memory allows the HDD to work two times faster than existing modules, with the speed of booting and high-capacity media work capability being five times and 4.1 times faster, respectively.
Samsung said the new notebook model will include the Window 10 operating system, Intel's latest eighth-generation processor and a 39.6-centimeter full HD display.
"Samsung cooperated closely with Intel to equip the Notebook 5 with Intel's Optane memory module, dramatically improving the HDD speed and enhancing user convenience," a company executive said. (yonhap)
