Summary

Describes drivers compatible with Windows 11* for Intel® Optane™ memory.

Description

Are Intel® Optane memory products compatible with the Windows 11 operating system? What drivers should I use for my platform?

Resolution

Before attempting upgrade to Windows 11, make sure to confirm platform compatibility with the PC Health Check app or with your OEM/system vendor.

On Windows 11-compatible platforms, Intel Optane memory devices are supported and can continue to be used with the following drivers:

  • 8th and 9th generation platforms are supported for Windows 11 upgrades and clean OS installations with driver version 17.11.0.1000.
  • 10th and 11th generation platforms are supported for Windows 11 upgrades and clean OS installations with driver version 18.6.1.1016.
Note

7th Generation platforms are not supported on Windows 11, so these Intel Optane Memory-enabled platforms will not be available on this OS.
