Hi,

 

I've found some PC4-21333 (DDR4-2666) ram modules in Lenovo website:

01AG838 Samsung
01AG825 Hynix
01AG842 Micron
01AG844 Ramaxel
01AG813 Micron

01AG819 Ramaxel

 

Is the T470 compatible with this memory?

 

Thanks for your kind help! :)

The Psref for that model specifies 32GB max / 2400MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable, two DDR4 SO-DIMM socketsbut it will accept 2133 RAM, and on some models will run at that speed regardless depending on the processor.

 

If it were me, I would use a free scanner such as HWiNFO to see what is already installed and try to match the new RAM to the existing RAM's specifications as closely as possible, especially if you are planning to add to your existing RAM.    

 

Best of luck,

Yes I know that. But I was wondering even if it will be downclocked to 2400MHz, if DDR4-2666MHz was compatible with a T470.

I'm not looking to match the existing RAM, I'm looking for the best upgrade (16GB×2), hence my question about PC4-21333 memory.

And according to richk's answer, it is compatible, thank you guys!
