Yoga 13 max 8 or 16GB RAM?

Official sources say that Yoga 13 is capable of max 8GB RAM. I wanted to double check if 16GB is not possible? I would be using the Yoga 13 for school and heavy VMWare. So the extra 8GB would be welcome.

Re: Yoga 13 max 8 or 16GB RAM?

Hi,

 

According to the ipbook, the Yoga 13 has a single memory slot. You'd have to find a 16G stick.  I don't think such a thing exists. Even if it does, there's no indication the motherboard supports it. And wow, would it be expensive...

8GB max7 / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket

Re: Yoga 13 max 8 or 16GB RAM?

Hi Jonas,

At the moment 8 gigs is the max (but Intel do list the CPU to able to support 32 gigs across two dimm slots). So zoltanthegypsy advice about 16 gigs been possible is not yet been tested by Lenovo. Until 16 gigs come out, we can only assume 8 gigs as max.

Finally, if you run lot of vmware the Yoga 13 will run hot.

No 16GB SODIMMs yet. I think DDR4 is going to introduce them in 2014 according to the rumours.

No, I confirmed 16GB does not work in the 11s.

Re: Yoga 13 max 8 or 16GB RAM?

So I have a Lenovo Yoga 13  with i7 processor and bought the 16gb ram from crucial on amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0123BRIDK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/ideapad-yoga-13/CT3655897

 

I installed it and when turning on the computer the display would not turn on. I put back the 8GB and it worked. Thus it seems the max for the computer is 8GB sadly. If anyone knows if there is any type of 16GB RAM let me know?

Do you think the "CRUCIAL 16GB DDR3L 1600 MT/s (PC3L-12800) CL11 SODIMM" could upgrade a yoga 13 with I5-3337U CPU ?
