Hi all I Bought a 32 g Optane memory, and it says it can't work with my 1tb samsung 970 NVME drive. My Asus Maximus x motherboard wanted an NVME drive to be a boot drive, if I wanted to use an M.2 slot. What kind of M.2 SSD can I use with optane?Rich

Currently Optane only is compatible with Sata drives, I researched the same question and first of all there would be little to no improvement with your M2 if it even could and second it only is compatible with sata drives.

Although. A possibility to research is if your MB could be updated to allow the Optane to be used for a sata second/data drive which some newer boards allow.

Thank you. I read every page I could find on Optane, and at no point do they manage to mention this basic detail. I didn't expect huge gains, just thought I'd have another 32g of high speed storage/ buffering.

Hi RMull5, Thank you for posting in the Intel® communities. As mentioned by DSedl1, the Intel® Optane™ Memory can only accelerate SATA drives. NVMe* drives are not supported. Please check the following article where this information is detailed: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000023994/memory-and-storage/intel-optane-m... I hope this clarifies your concern. If you have any other doubt, feel free to ask. Have a nice day. Regards, Diego V. Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation
