Intel's new M.2 905P is offering high-end Optane performance with PCIe 3.0 4x bandwidth access and what is estimated to be 380GB of storage capacity per drive. In my personal opinion Intel is trying to use every avenue available to make even more money from Optane. Intel has not released the final specs of their new 905P M.2 SSD. 
 
 

Specs: AMD 1920X Threadripper, Samsung SM961 M.2, 64GB Corsair DDR4 memory (half kit of CMD128GX4M8B2800C14),  ASRock X399 Taichi Motherboard

    M.2 has attracted a lot of hardware but with a measly 2 PCI Express lanes its not that fast

    The one thing I am wondering is will the system see it as Optane storage and save data to it as such.

    I personally haven’t been that big of a fan of Optane since it seems odd to only offer it on systems with an i5 or i7. I just never saw someone buying an i7 and planning on using a HDD as the main system storage. Also the 32GB max at launch was not nearly enough.

    intel does some funny naming things, now optane can mean a caching drive or a pcie ssd main drive. with them now letting optane caching work with storage drives instead of just boot drives it makes more sense, if you are on 300 series chipset that is.

    please read what Charlie has on optane on SemiAccurate - before you jump on the bandwagon
    10nm has issues and so does optane

    It does now actually, quadlatte. It used to only support the boot drive.
     
    Xavier, I've installed into high performance desktops using M.2 boot drives (RST with Optane) also and it has made a significant difference with high performance M.2 SSD's installed.

    I didn't say it won't help boost speeds.... i said beware of issues with optane
     
    read what charlie says
     
    endurance for one
    Random write failures. This isn’t to say the cell is bad, if you retry it, things almost always work fine
    mixing and matching ram - unknown - issues

    I know what you said. My point was, I haven't ran into any issues with Optane this far.
