Lenovo S340 15IwL 81N8 SSD upgrade options.

I have a Lenovo S340 15IWL 81N8 laptop that came with an Intel i3 - 8145U cpu, 1TB HDD and 4GB RAM. I want to add a SSD to my laptop to increase it's performance but I just can't find what type of m.2 SSD do I use and what is the maximum size of the storage space supported for the SSD in this laptop. Also I want to know what type of RAM and upto what size of RAM can I add to this laptop. Also does this one support Intel Optane memory and what kind. 

 

Thank You

Hi samarthg,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Product specifications shows:

 

Up to 2 drives (one HDD and one M.2 SSD):

● HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high, 5400rpm

● M.2 2242 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2, 16Gb/s

● M.2 2280 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4, 32Gb/s

● M.2 SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s (e.g. xxxGB SSD M.2)

 

There is also an Optional: 16GB Intel Optane Memory, PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2, 16Gb/s, M.2 (ex. PN 00UP480 16G, M.2, 2280, PCIe 3x2, INT, STD) for 81N8 depending on the board.

 

For the memory:

12GB max offering / 2400MHz DDR4, optional 4GB memory soldered to systemboard, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket. Checking for compatible ram from parts lookup shows available 8GB DDR4 2666 SoDIMM too.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

Thank you so much for clearing my doubts, just one more thing, what is the max storage capacity of the m.2 ssd that I can install and is the intel optane support limited to 16GB or can I go with the higher capacity variants such as the ones that have a SSD storage as well on board?

Thank you

Hi samarthg,

 

Max OEM offered from parts lookup is 1TB like PN01FR543 (Storage SSD 760p 1T M.2 Intel).

 

Others managed 2TB like on this case.

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo S340 15IwL 81N8 SSD upgrade options.

Yes. But in real work, if you are not going to do video editing (hahaha) on your S340, you will not notice much difference between it and good SATA with dram buffer. I advise you not to waste money, but instead buy M.2 WD Blue 512GB with a 5-year warranty(~70-80$). S340 support officially M.2 SATA. Or AData pci-e for 512Gb with same 5-years warranty. This will give you an extra 250GB, and there will be no difference in the actual download speed of applications and W10 at all. I guarantee. Your processor is simply not able to utilize the speed of this top-end SSD, a waste of money in fact ...

 

p.s. in terms of minimum power consumption, Intel's best SSDs.
