Ram Upgrade



I am having Lenovo Z460 which has a Samsung 2GB PC3-8500 DDR3 1066MHz  RAM in one of the slots. I am going for an upgradation. But the thing is, find it very hard to get a 8500 - 1066MHz RAM. So will it be ok if go for the next higher configuration RAM..say.. 10600 - 1333MHz


I've referred the user's manual & it says...


Bus architecture • Hyper Transport Link 16 x 16
• A link Express2
• DDRIII 800~1333MHz
• PCI-Express x 16

DDR III 800/1066MHz DIMM socket x 2 (max 4GB per slot)


Does this i have to stick with 1066MHz RAM ?

Grateful to any sort of help.

Re: Ram Upgrade

Hi Saravana,


Welcome to Lenovo Community!


I’m sorry to inform you that the specifications of the new RAM should be same as the pre-installed RAM of the computer to work as expected.


Do post us back for further queries.


Best Regards

Shiva Kumar
