Community Questions: Do You Use Intel Optane?

Now that you all had the chance to ask Intel your biggest questions regarding Intel Optane, we wanted to know your thoughts. Do you use Intel Optane products or intend to add these storage devices to your system in the near future?

In full disclosure, I am not an Optane user. When building my latest rig, I did consider it. There was a lot of back-and-forth about the subject between the moderators and myself, but in the end I decided not to. The main use case would be to improve game load times. I have a pretty large library of Steam games, and an extensive collection of classic game backups I play with an emulator. All in all my game library tallies up to roughly 4TB in size. While this isn’t the largest games library, it’s still fairly large. Getting a single SSD with enough storage space to fit 4TB of games is not exactly cheap.
