G480 RAM upgrade

I have recently bought an Essentials G480 and want to upgrade my memory from 4GB to 8GB, but I'm not sure if this one:

is compatible with my notebook. Does anyone know? Thanks =D


Ps.: by compatible I mean "can it run in dual channel?"

Re: G480 RAM upgrade

hi RafaelOP,


Welcome to the Lenovo Community.



The Lenovo G480's motherboard can support as much as:


- 8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3*, non-parity

- dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets


The link you posted is compatible for your model. As for dual-channel configuration, it is recommended to have two identical RAM (brand, freq., timings, etc.) to get the best results. You can find more info on the Lenovo G480 here.



- the system automatically clocks down for processors with 1333MHz DDR3

- this means you must have the i5 processor to utilize the 1600Mhz  speed. 



Hope this helps
