System acceleration with Intel® Optane™ memory is supported on the following CPUs and chipsets.

Note
  • Secondary/data drive acceleration requires the specified Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) driver version and corresponding system BIOS
    • Unless otherwise noted, the processors/chipsets noted below support secondary/data drive acceleration
  • Mobile platform support is only with the Intel® Optane™ memory M10 modules. 
  • You must use this chipset in a platform (system/motherboard) that contains the proper BIOS support. Consult your motherboard/system vendor for more information.
  • This list is only in reference to Intel Optane Memory and Intel Optane Memory M10 series devices.  Intel Optane Memory H Series devices require specific motherboard and BIOS support, check with your motherboard/system vendor for specific support for these devices

Make sure you have the proper driver version installed on your system for acceleration from the table below.
