upgrade Thinkpad L460 RAM

I own a thinkpad L460 i5 6200U  , im thinking about boosting up my RAM. Currently i have 4gb and i would like to upgrade it to 20Gb since i work a lot with VMs.

i have made a few researches and found out that both RAMs must have the same frequency. But I would like to be sure if adding a new 16Gb RAM with 4GB won’t cause any probleme and if they can run smoothly together.

thanks in advance

Hi everiknow,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

  

Yes, RAM specifications should match in this case it is 32GB max7 / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 & you can add 16GB stick to one of your free slot but in order to achieve dual channel the RAM size should also match.  

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!


Regards,
Prabhansh
