Does Gentoo support Optane, https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/optane-memory.html, and if so what do I need to do during the install to utilize it? A search doesn't seem to yield any useful information except for a quick reference to it in the TMPFS Wiki. https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Tmpfs

My laptop comes with 16 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (2 x 8 GB) and a 1 TB Intel SSD + 32 GB Intel Optane memory.

On my previous/current install I only had "normal" RAM so I am not sure what I am supposed to do differently in this case.

Thanks.

I put "Linux Optane" into a search engine and got this:

I think... Optane memory is just a nvme drive. I have an Optane 905. It's detected as a normal nvme drive and you use it as such. Just have to enable support in kernel and then instead of using the classical /dev/sdX smth you use the newer /dev/nvmeXpY, well most like nvme0pX. where pX is the partition number. Other then that I don't think there is any other difference.
