Optane cache support on x270

Hi, I am currently using thinkpad x270 with pcie-ssd preinstalled, I am wondering if the 32GB version of optane cache memory can be used in my system, as there is a free m.2 2242 slot with pcie support. I am curious that although the support of SATA ssd is mentioned and confirmed in the documents, but the pcie ssd support is not mentioned. I want to know if the optane could or couldn't work with pcie nvme ssd. I can go with "not much performence boost but work", but if it's proved to be incompatible with pcie ssd, that would be sad.

Hello AaronZY,

We understand you would like to know if your system is compatible with Intel® Optane™ Technology. After checking your http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20X270/ThinkPad_X270_Platform_Specificatio... computer's specs, we need to let you know that the system is not compatible with this technology.

Your system uses a 6th generation processor and for Intel® Optane™ Technology the system needs to have a 7th generation processor.

Here are some useful links for you to take a look at the requirements:
