An Intel Optane Modules were released in 2017 for improved performance of the system. However, the latest updates of Microsoft Windows 10 seems to outsmart the modules. The problem is not about modernizing it’s about whether the systems with the modules would get an upgrade or not? Seems pretty much clear that it’s NO at least as of now…
Judging by numerous user complaints, the Windows 10 May 2020 Update released last month causes problems with the Intel Optane memory module. The Intel Optane module was first released in 2017 and was designed to improve computer performance at a lower cost. However, as it turned out, the new version of Windows 10 (2004) is not compatible with it. As previously reported, Microsoft has already begun sending out updates but does not offer it for devices that may have compatibility issues. Currently, the company is aware of ten problems, but it seems to have added another one that Microsoft does not know about yet.
According to user reports, the new OS version “refuses” to be installed from Windows Update on computers with some Intel Optane modules. Of course, it can be forced to install using the Microsoft Media Creation Tool, but in this case, compatibility problems can not be avoided. During the upgrade process, Windows 10 deletes one of the Optane Memory Pinning files but still tries to run it, which leads to errors and performance degradation.
It is noteworthy that the participants in the testing program informed Microsoft about this problem through the Feedback Hub a few months before the final assembly of the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, but the company still did not fix it. Perhaps every month she received too few messages about incompatibilities with Intel Optane, so they were ignored.
