Is it possible to use more than one Intel Optane Memory m.2 modules to accelerate a single drive or even different drives?

Thank you in advance!

No.  Only one module, and one drive are permitted.

I have two modules. Can I use them both for system acceleration?

System acceleration is only supported with one module and one supported drive. Additional modules in the system aren't supported for system acceleration.

Hi @pit00 

Only one Optane module can be used in a system and only one drive can be accelerated in the system. You may use the Optane Module to accelerate you data HDD and the second M.2 you may use for modern high speed NVMe SSD. On this SSD you may install Windows and other programs. Usually for data high speed drive is not required, so, you don't need an Optane Memory at all, if you have NVMe SSD for system and programs.
