T14 (AMD) Memory + SSD Upgrade

2020-10-16, 22:12 PM

Hey everyone!

I am soon to receive my T14 (AMD - 20UDCT01WW), which I'm super excited about.
I bought it with the 16gb soldered DDR4 3200mhz RAM and the 128gb PCIe SSD installed.

I'm fairly new to laptops and compatibility and stuff, but I'm hoping to add another 16gb stick of RAM and upgrade to a bigger SSD.

Here are my questions:

  • Will a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB NVMe M.2 Internal SSD be compatible with the laptop?
  • Will any SODIMM 16gb DDR4 3200mhz RAM stick work?
    • I was looking at a Samsung 16GB DDR4 3200MHz PC4-25600 SODIMM model M471A2K43DB1-CWE.

 

Thank you so much for your help.
Very much appreciated!

Solved! See the solution

Hello TickTank, 

 

Will a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB NVMe M.2 Internal SSD be compatible with the laptop?

 

The Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB NVMe M.2 should be compatible on your T14 AMD  without any problems...

 

Will any SODIMM 16gb DDR4 3200mhz RAM stick work?

 

All the RAM could work but because some cheap SODIMM could affect the stability of your laptop,  it is highly recommanded to use a certified SODIMM on your T14, Samsung, Crucial...

 

I was looking at a Samsung 16GB DDR4 3200MHz PC4-25600 SODIMM model M471A2K43DB1-CWE

 

Yes you could take...  Ram is important for the performance of your Ryzen(see image) .. so I recommand  same frequency, equal quantity you have soldered (8+8 or 16+16) When i upgrade my Thinkpads since many years I always use Crucial and it always worked well ... But Samsung should be perfect .. but i didn't try it .. 

 

If it helps please consider a star or solved problems ;p

 

Best regards
