Built-in is written six times while the more accurate pre-installed only appears once. I'll be passing on Gigabyte for awhile.

Too small and pointless, avoid these parts and buy your own NVME drive

Well, I'd take one, if the price didn't increase. But I wouldn't even pay a dollar for this. They'd have to pay me for the 'hassle' of installing and using. They can barely give them away. 32 gigs.... come on. I know it's supposed to be an accelerator, but meh.

Not only is this almost useless but I bet support will not be available for more than 4 years now the line.

I recently tried an Optane stick (32GB) out in one of my systems. It did speed-up my HDD's performance.
Overall system speed was not dramatically faster because there was already a 500GB SSD in it for the OS.
I didn't keep it.

For the budding young "baller on a budget" who thinks SSD prices are insane. Intel couldn't give these away, so they found a way to recoup their losses by bundling with slow-selling motherboards. To be a worthwhile deal, these should be very close to the price of the non OP boards, because Optane cache is not that great.
