Thank you for contacting our support community. We understand your question regarding the Intel® Optane™ Memory.
We would like to inform you that we do not support the usage of the module as a storage device. Also, Intel(R) does not provide a vendor-unique NVMe* driver for this series. System acceleration requires the Intel(R) RST driver version 15.5 or later. If the drive is not used for system acceleration, it is supported by the standard NVMe* Microsoft* in-box driver that comes with the Windows® 10 operating system.
For more information you can refer to the following article:

Thanks Junior M,
I got the Optane 32GB x2 RAID 0 array up and running just fine using the ROG Apex 10 bios.
The NVMe Win 10 driver must have installed in the background, the performance of the 64GB drive is outstanding. Faster or slower than my Intel 900P? So difficult to determine, both are amazing bleeding edge fast as lightening.
Now, I heard Intel will be offering 60GB and 120GB Optane M.2 modules as standalone SSDs, Will they have designated NVMe Optane drivers like the 900P?
Also, when can I upgrade my 900P blackout version to the 900P with blue LED drive function indicator lighting version?

Thanks for the reply.
It seems that the system is using the Windows(R) 10 NVMe* inbox driver. Please keep in mind that you are using an unsupported configuration with the Optane(TM) modules so we can not confirm your statement regarding the comparison with the Intel® Optane™ SSD 900P Series.
We don't have any information available about those SSDs, we recommend you to wait until the official release.
We would like to inform you that the Intel® Optane™ SSD 900P Series does not have led indicators and that option is not available.
