I understand you are having some questions regarding the Smart Response Technology and the acceleration of a SATA data disk using the Optane memory. Allow me to help you regarding this issue.
Just for you to know, the Intel® Smart Response Technology (ISRT) is a feature that the 8th generation of processors have.
Furthermore, regarding your question about accelerate a SATA data disk; I was able to find in the manual of you motherboard, page 41, that “An Optane™ memory cannot be used to accelerate an M.2 PCIe SSD”. Here you have the link where I found this document for you to double check it and find more information about this issues you are facing: http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_z370n-wifi_e.pdf
I hope this answers all your questions.
Hello, Antony S
Tons of thanks for your reply and kindness.
I read manual you mentioned,
and I understand that ISRT can't target M.2 PCIe SSD to be accelerated.
But my issue is how to accelerate SATA disk using M.2 PCIe SSD.
I tried another way,
use SATA SSD as cash to accelerate SATA HDD in old manner but failed.
So complicated and confused…
Possibly it's better to wait some time or to reinstall completely
Thanks again for your advise
