Does Arnold Renderer Support Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory

Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory resides in the DRAM slot. It has several modes, one of which is App Direct, which means a particular application can utilize the memory as a persistent cache to increase performance of the app.

Does Arnold Renderer support this type of memory? If yes, what are the specs for this kind of support?

A good reference to learn more about this type of memory:

Doesn't make sense for a renderer to use AppDirect mode and because of how cache is generally accessed in raytracing it would not make any positive impact even in Memory mode.
