Can I install Intel Optane Memory on Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52-57WR laptop?

Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52-57WR (NH.Q3LSI.008) comes with 128GB SSD and no Optane Memory.
Does it support Optane Memory? Is it possible to install Intel Optane Memory later on this laptop?

    Hi,

    Acer Nitro 5 laptops with 7th and 8th gen supports Intel Optane Memory of 16 and 32 GB. It is advised to go for SSD instead of Optane Memory. The main reason is that, Optane Memory just multiply your HDD performance by twice to thrice. However, SSD increases 10 times faster than HDD .

    Thanks.
    But if required is it possible to install Optane Memory on this Model in future? Does it have required hardware?
    Hi,
    Go to BIOS, move to Main tab, click SATA mode and check whether "RST with Optane" option is available, if it is available, you may be able to use Optane memory, I haven't tried it, so can not confirm with authority.

    Please click "Yes" for "Did this answer the question", if I resolve the problem.
