MSI Updates 200 Series Motherboard BIOS for Optane Memory Support

The latest cutting edge Optane non-volatile memory technology from Intel is finally here and MSI has released a BIOS update to help users get the most out of its performance on their 200-series motherboards. Intel Optane is currently only supported exclusively in 200-series chipsets which include the flagship Z270, the mainstream H270 and entry-level B250 motherboards. Intel’s current Optane 3D Xpoint memory comes in the form of a 16GB or 32GB M.2 module which can be used for caching purposes, improving performance for hard drive access by as much as 14 times.

MSI is also adding a new Optane Genie feature that enables the feature with just a single click similar to the one-click XMP and Game Boost toggle available on all MSI UEFI mainboards. In addition to the BIOS update ensuring optimal performance, select MSI motherboards come with an M.2 shield built-in which helps absorb some of the heat generated by the M.2 module. This M.2 shield includes the metal heat shield itself as well as full-coverage thermal pads so it is ready to use out of the box.
