Intel Optane SSD 800P 58GB & 118GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD

Intel's Optane SSD 800P packaging is sturdy, compact and attractive.

The back of the packaging features an image of the enclosed SSD, lists a bit of pertinent information about the enclosed SSD, its warranty and form factor.

Inside of the colorful packaging, the 800P is protected from damage by a clear plastic clamshell.

Along with the SSD, Intel includes a printed installation and warranty guide. We assume that the 800P is compatible with Intel's disk migration software and SSD Toolbox both of which are free via download.

Like all Optane SSDs, the Optane 800P is DRAMless. Optane memory media is fast enough to be used for address tables and to perform ECC functions. The 800P is a single sided design meaning all components are housed on one side of the PCB. Here we see an Intel 2-channel controller and two Optane memory packages.

This side of the PCB is devoid of components. The copper graphics and lettering are very attractive.
