Solved!

what does 16GB Intel Optane mean or do?

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HP Pavilion 590-p0053w, Intel i5-8400, 8GB RAM, 16GB Intel Optane, 1TB HDD, Windows 10 Home

I am interested in buying a new HP desktop with the specs shown above, and I understand all of them except I don't know what 16GB Intel Optane is?  Can you enlighten me on this please.

Hi:

 

Intel Optane memory accelerates the hard drive.

 

This link will explain what it does.

 

https://www.howtogeek.com/317294/what-is-intel-optane-memory/

 

Personally, I would be removing the Optane memory and installing a NVMe M.2 SSD in its place.

 

I'd probably remove the hard drive too or use it for extra storage.
