T440s maximum RAM

Just wondering - where does the 12 GB RAM limit for the T440s come from? Is it related to the motherboard or BIOS or the operating system? (for example, if I run 64 bit Linux can I potentially enjoy 16 GB of RAM?)

It depends upon chipset used in the system- the 4th Generation CPUs which is used in T440s doesn't support RAM more than 8GB. So maximum will be 12GB only.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

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

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Re: T440s maximum RAM

I realize this is an older thread so I apologize but I just received a refurbished t440s with the 4th gen CPU. So from your answer above do I understand correctly that there is 4 GB soldered to the board and that it is possible to add an 8 GB module for a total of 12 GB ?

 

If so, what are the correct specs for the memory such as speed, CL, # of pins etc.

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

That's correct, 12GB is the maximum your T440s will support. You'll need PC3-12800 DDR3L SO-DIMM RAM (Source: click me!)

 

Avoid any no-name brand as well as any module that has the word "Value" or "Economy" on it.
