Can I make my Intel Optane Memory Module a drive?

Jump to solution

I was wondering if I could delete all the data on my module and then add a new NTFS volume and install windows on it to try to get an extremely fast experience?

Hello GameworldCEO,

Thanks for posting in our forum.

 

To answer your question, the Intel® Optane™ Memory module can be used also as an SSD. Just to double check, do you have the 32GB module?

This because the module of 16GB can be easily filled up with just the installation of the Operating System and don't leave you enough space for programs.

We do suggest to use it as an accelerator as it will improve the quality of your SATA drive.

Please let us know if you require further assistance.

Regards,

No, I only have the 16GB but I will only use it as an OS drive and I will install my programs on another SSD. But will be it fast as an M.2 SSD or in between a regular SSD and M.2 or slower than that? And can it also be used as Virtual ram?
