ASUS' 200-series motherboards have now been updated to support Intel Optane 

 
ASUS' 200-series motherboards have now been updated to support Intel's new Optane memory devices, which will release first on the desktop in the form of 16GB or 32GB M.2 caching devices.   
 
This new memory type can then be used to speed up both SSD and HDD powered systems, allowing for faster boot times for your OS and programs. 
 
Intel's new memory type will require BIOS support in order to function properly, with ASUS leading the charge when it comes to Optane support on 200-series motherboards. All motherboards in the list below will now support Optane memory using the listed BIOS revisions or newer.

Only if you let it be.
Download the BIOS, then if a zip file, extract the folder to a USB stick. It will probably need to be in fat32 format and put the stick in the Asus USB port that allows for flashes.
Then go into your BIOS find the update bios. Then select the USB and probably .Bin file. Then update. Wait... It'll reboot and turn off again, then reboot.

Takes about. Idk 3 minutes?Quote
