Hello Rabbikka,

 

 

Currently Intel® Optane™ Memory may only be used to accelerate one Windows® 10 SATA boot drive.

 

 

Please keep in mind that an M.2 SSD can be SATA or NVMe. If your SSD is SATA, then Intel® Optane™ Memory can still be used to accelerate your system. Currently there is no information available on when or whether secondary drive caching will be enabled.

 

 

Best regards,
