How to check for compatibility with Intel® Optane™ Memory in specific laptop models
Need to check compatibility of Intel® Optane™ Memory in a laptop model.
There are two different products that include Intel® Optane™ memory media. They each have slightly different requirements for compatibility and are referenced below.
Intel® Optane™ memory M series
Motherboards and systems that contain the proper hardware/software support will be listed as Intel® Optane Memory Ready.
Intel® Optane™ Memory Ready platforms contain the proper support in the BIOS and the proper hardware for the module. This can be checked by reviewing the product specifications from your system/board manufacturer's website, or by contacting them directly.
|Note||For specific laptop compatibility, work with your laptop vendor. A system BIOS update may be necessary to support system acceleration.|
Intel® Optane™ memory H series
The Intel® Optane™ memory H series can only be used in systems with the proper system BIOS capable of recognizing both halves of the device:
- The Intel® Optane™ memory side
- The Intel® QLC 3D NAND side
Each half will be detected as an individual PCIe* x2 device. These devices can be combined, or "paired", into a single volume using the Intel® RST driver and applications.
