T470 Upgrade RAM from 8GB's to 16 GB's

2018-08-08, 18:35 PM

Hello Community, I have the following question. I just got a T470 Lenovo ThinkPad (Product Name: 20HES18R0H, LENOVO_MT_20HE_BU_Think_FM_ThinkPad T470). System comes with 8GB's RAM (DDR4, 2133 MHz, Part Number: RMSA3260ME78HAF-2666, Manufacturer: 0443, as reported by dmidecode). I would like to extend system's memory by getting 8 more GB's. The question is what are my options? In order to avoid problems, I believe that I must buy a memory card that matches my existing one. Thus, what are my choises? Which memory cards do you recommend?

Hi SemosVit ,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Platform specification for your model :

32GB max / 2400MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable, two DDR4 SO-DIMM sockets


You can match your current 8GB RAM (PN 01AG710 8GB DDR4 2400 SoDIMM)  with another 8GB of same specification or even add 16 GB DDR4. !6 GB + 16 GB DDR4 will max it to 32 GB on the available 2 slots. Recommended OEM RAM for model 20HE here (click commodity type as memory to filter).

I've the Lenovo T470 since august 2017, I was thinking if its worth the upgrade or it's time to change for a newer model, I'd like more ram (now it's 8gb and would like 16 or 32 if possible) and upgrade the intel core processor to i7 (now it's i5-7200U)


Part number is 20HDCTO1WW, thank you for your answer.

The RAM question is already answered in the post immediately above yours.


The CPU is soldered to the mainboard.
