How would Intel Optane Memory Work with PCI-E SSD?

Jump to solution

I already have a Intel 750 SSD installed in the PCI-E slot which directly connected with CPU. The Windows 10 64bit is installed on this PCI-E SSD.

I also have a large volume HDD connected with SATA interface on PCH. The HDD is purely for data storage. It is formatted with GPT.

Could I still leverage Optane Memory to accelerate the HDD data accessing?

Hello sunseraphic,

 

 

Thank you for your question.

 

 

Intel® Optane™ Memory must be paired with the drive it will accelerate. Currently, it can only be configured to improve the performance of your boot drive.

 

 

Best regards,

Thank you very much, Carlos.

May I ask if Intel has any plan to enable Optane Memory supporting non-bootable drive which is pure data storage in the near future?

Hello sunseraphic,

 

 

Intel® Optane™ works by accelerating your OS and most used software applications. While it's very possible that new features and usages will be implemented in the future, we do not have enough information to make any promises yet.

 

 

Best regards,
