You can do this with any ssd, no need for optane here. And your system already does this with the system ram onboard.

 

But with a cpu that old, thats hurting the loading times aswell as your waiting for the cpu to process all the files from the disk.

i saw optane on an vga card slot

could that work for me i have P5E3 PRO motherboard from asus

 yes i have 2 ordinary hard drives and one ssd

It will work fine, its a nvme drive, works like any other nvme drive. But you can't boot from it, and its gonna be slower due to the slower pcie speed. And the intel caching software won't work. Really id look into a platform upgrade first.

To use Optane as cache as Intel wanted to promote it, I think you need 7th gen Intel CPU or newer. However there are 3rd party cache tools (like primocache) that could also make use of it instead if you really wanted to use it with an older system.

 

Alternatively, if you have money to burn there are Optane SSDs, like the 900p and successor. Being realistic, the extra performance over a good NVMe isn't detectable outside benchmarks.

If you save it or give it away, you're not poluting the nature.
