Is the P4800x an HHHL or U2 configuration?
and what capacity?

RE: Intel Optane P4800x Drives with 4D Server and Thermal Throttling

In case anyone is wondering.  I just installed one of these P4800X drives in 
our backup server and ran a test conversion of our datafile from v13 to v17.  
The datafile is 67gb and the index is about 25gb.  4D has 120gb ram allocated 
and running on Windows Server 2016.

Previously, I was converting the datafile on a HighPoint SSD7101A-1 NVMe M.2 
RAID Controller with 4x Samsung 960 Pro drives in Raid 0.  The conversion was 
taking about 130 minutes.  After swapping out this HighPoint RAID with a single 
P4800X drive and running the same conversion I was able to cut the conversion 
down to about 80 minutes.

I hope this is valuable to somebody else.

Thanks
Justin Will

according to a friend who is more up to date on this then me.
The optane memory just 'goes', and runs at the same speed - regardless.

here is a review on Tom's hardware:

Intel Optane P4800x Drives with 4D Server and Thermal Throttling

2019-03-14 Thread Justin Will via 4D_Tech
Anyone using these Intel 3D XPoint drives on their production servers?  I'm 
wondering if anyone is seeing thermal throttling with them like I see with my 
NVME SSD drives on sustained high throughput times.

Thanks
