Intel® Optane™ memory is supported to accelerate the following drives:
- a single SATA drive1, 2 or
- a single Intel® SSD 660p Series (no other PCIe NVMe* drives are supported for system acceleration) with Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver/SW version 220.127.116.114 or later
These drives may contain the Operating System (Boot Drive) or be a Data drive3 (used for storage, but does not contain the Operating System).
1 A single SATA drive with multiple operating systems isn't supported with system acceleration. We don't recommend this use, and we can't guarantee results. See the full requirements in the Installation Guide.
2 Dual OS Boot systems—those with more than one storage drive, each containing an OS--are not supported and results cannot be guaranteed.
3 Data drive acceleration is supported with software version 16.x or later only. For more information see Secondary/Data SATA Drive Acceleration with Intel® Optane™ Memory.
