Lenovo Ideapad 100-15IBD 80QQ RAM Upgrade

So there are already a lot of posts about RAM upgrade on this forum, but they're all by people with 4 gb of RAM. My model has 8 gb at 798 MHz and I was wondering if I could possibly upgrade the RAM on my laptop? 8 gb at 798 MHz isn't good anymore in 2019, and if 8 gb is the highest supported size, then can I get an 8 gb model with a higher frequency speed? And what is the limit? Thanks.


RAMMon says maxmum transfer speed in MHz is DDR3-1600, I suppose this would be it?

Hi Yakubb,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Similar to the discussion here, the hardware manual shows that you have already reached max 8GB OEM supported on this model.


Max supported frequency of 1600MHz is also reached. Your 798 MHz on double data rate is essentially 800 x 2 as the same max transfer speed.


I hope this helps answer your query.
