Intel has released Version 16.8.0.1000 of the Rapid Storage Technology driver
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) User Interface and Driver
Version: 16.8.0.1000 (Latest) Date: 12/8/2018


Detailed Description
Systems running driver version 15.9.x, 16.0.x, 16.5.x, or 16.7.x should update to the latest version.

Note: Intel recommends that end users utilize driver updates provided by their system manufacturer/provider or via Windows Update to eliminate the potential impact caused by loading non-customized drivers. System manufacturers regularly customize Intel generic drivers to meet the needs of their specific system design. In such cases, use of the Intel generic driver update is not recommended.

If you choose to update to the Intel generic driver:

Intel recommends that you perform this driver update via the Intel® Driver & Support Assistant (IDSA) tool. IDSA provides an automated, simplified update process with no extra steps to perform, and may identify other needed important driver updates. If you are not sure if this driver/update is applicable to your system click the “get started” link below. The IDSA tool will provide the needed guidance.

Click here to get started with IDSA.

Only if you are INSTALLING the Intel® RST driver for the first time, enabling a new Intel® Optane™ memory module, click here.

Possibly inappropriate here? Move as you wish.
One thing I have always welcomed with Microsoft. was there attention to updating of "third party" hardware.
On a suggestion, just recently, I worked through the device manager, and selecting the option, in each case, to update drivers. Each and every Intel device needed an update form the origin.
So far, one or two weeks now, There have been no problems with these.
