Intel Optane M.2 drives on Haswell/Broadwell Precision Workstations
Has anyone experimented with the Intel Optane storage modules on the Precision 7810/7910 or similar designed workstations? Ebay seems to have a number of the H10 model hitting the market place which combines Optane with NVME storage--essentially a self-accelerated storage solution. Its neat tech but my little bit of research would seem to indicate that Optane, in general, best serves the Kaby Lake or newer CPU's however I haven't seen anything explicitly excludes Haswell and Broadwell Xeon processors.
According to Intel's own site, Optane requires 7th gen and above CPUs (stupid artificial limitation) and from what I have seen around the web, this is hardcoded, so no, it won't work.
Also, to add insult to injury, you need Win10.
