Hi, it was given to me a intel optane 16GB M.2 module...
Its to put on board as a disk or as a "ram"?
I have a hard drive with windows and ram on my desktop, just add the Intel optane in a m.2 slot?
Nedd to configure something ot it kust will work by itself?
Thanks

The Optane modules were created to provide cache storage for disk subsystems.
You might be able to use it like that. What CPU/Motherboard do you have ?

Hi, Asus Rampage Apex VI
If you have SSDs then Optane isn't very useful. If you have a spinning disk, then you can use the Optane as a cache -- https://redmondmag.com/articles/2021/01/25/windows-10-for-intel-optane.aspx
