MSI Throws in Free Optane SSD with Select 200 Series Motherboards

Tom LiApril 26, 2017

MSI’s latest strategy to boost sales is to leverage Intel’s hot new Optane SSD. MSI’s Arsenal Gaming motherboards: Z270 Tomahawk Opt Boost, B250M Bazooka Ops Boost, and the recently released B250M Pro Opt Boost-will all come with a 16GB Intel Optane SSD. All three motherboards are members of MSI’s prestigious gaming series with features such as M.2 slot, military-grade components, and PCIe 3.1 Gen2 support.

The included Optane SSD is a $50 value. Due to its rather low capacity, it’s primarily intended for use as a caching drive. Only Intel’s Z200 series chipsets support this technology, and a BIOS update to the latest version is required for those who currently own one of these motherboards. Once set up, users with HDDs will enjoy a noticeable response improvements in tasks they commonly perform the most.
