Intel was kind enough to send one of their Optane SSDs to me. Here’s my thoughts on it so far. Note: this review is a work-in-progress! My thoughts are NOT final. The reason why this is a work-in-progress is, well, I’ve had this drive for about a month-and-a-half so far. Normally a hardware review doesn’t take me any longer than two weeks once I receive the product. But I have just been bombarded with other things that came in: Steam Deck accessories, the Thelio, review keys for games, etc.
