Hi HX Teng,
Thank you for posting in the Intel® community.
After checking the information you provided about your system, it looks like it supports the Intel® Optane™ Memory to accelerate the secondary drive, however it’s also important to have the BIOS updated.
The main requirements are basically the following:
- 8th Generation Intel® Core Processor: The one that you have is fine as it’s an 8th Gen Core Processor.
- Intel® RST Pre-OS UEFI Driver version 18.104.22.16802 or later: You have to check this information with your motherboard vendor because the module won’t work to accelerate a secondary drive if the driver is not updated.
Considering this information, I recommend you to wait for the latest BIOS update because without it, you won’t be able to setup the Intel® Optane™ Memory in the way that you want.
I hope this information clarifies your concern. If there is anything else I can help you with, let me know.
The sites below have additional information about the Intel® Optane™ Memory and the requirements to accelerate a secondary drive, I recommend you to check them as well for future references:

Have a nice day.
