Thinkpad e460 RAM Upgrade question


I have Thinkpad E460 with 2 banks of 4GB memory each.

Is it possible to replace one of the banks with 8GB module in order to get 12GB total memory ?

Memory type is : 800.0 MHz (DDR3-1600 / PC3-12800) and I will plug same type - just 8GB module.

Thank you for any advice !

Welcome to the forum.


Yes, that will work fine. There may be a slight decrease in memory speed, however, it's imperceptible in practice.
