on this article,33398.html Intel: No 200-Series Mobile Chipsets, Optane Memory Support Comes To 100-Series Chipset Instead

2Intel® Optane™ Memory and its logo denote a platform feature made up of individual components and not solely a single small factor solid state drive or a memory media. A system that is Intel® Optane™ memory ready includes: an 7th Gen Intel® Core™ or Xeon® E3 v6 processor1, an Intel® 200 series2 or 100/C230 series3 (HM175, QM175, or CM238) chipset, M.2 type 2280-S1-B-M or 2242-S1-B-M connector on a PCH Remapped PCIe* Controller and Lanes in a x2 or x4 configuration with B-M keys that meet NVMe Spec 1.1 and System BIOS that supports the RST 15.5 driver.

  1. Support limited to Intel® S-, H-, and U-series processors.
  2. Only supported on 7th Gen Intel® Core™ or Xeon® E3 v6 S-series processors.
  3. Only supported on 7th Gen Intel® Core™ or Xeon® E3 v6 H-series processors.

Hello stiven680,



Thank you for your interest in the Intel® Optane™ Memory.



I understand you would like to find out if your Acer* Aspire E5'575G laptop is capable of supporting Intel® Optane™ Memory. Third-party compatibility inquiries are handled by the manufacturer's technical support team, but I may provide some insight.



Please keep in mind that aside from the hardware requirements, your computer's UEFI must also be Optane™ Memory-ready.



As you pointed out in the second post, the hardware requirements are as follows:
  • M.2 PCIe NVMe 3.0 x2 port
  • 7th Gen Intel® Core processor
  • 200 Series Chipset
For some systems this means that it can be supported after a BIOS update, for others it means that despite hardware requirements Optane™ may never be supported ( none of the updates that you shared in the original post mention anything about Optane™ Memory compatibility, but that is not conclusive).



According to the information you provided, it seems that aside from the 200 Series chipset, your system meets the base requirements. I reviewed the product specifications that are available online and by the looks of it, your computer meets some of the base requirements (the chipset information should be provided by Acer*).



As I previously mentioned, the best way to confirm the compatibility of your system would be to ask your computer manufacturer if this model is "Intel® Optane™ Memory-ready". If they're unable to provide an answer, then it's more than likely that it will not support this technology. In order to receive the corresponding compatibility confirmation, please check the manufacturer's link:
