I have a T470 with 8Gb ram. In order to upgrade to 16Gb (8Gb×2), I intented to buy this 8Gb ram :http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/products/dram/pc-dram/ddr4-sodimm/M471A1G43DB0?ia=2429
Will it be fully compatible?
Thanks a lot for your help

In most ram upgrades, it would be best to match your current installed RAM.
General specs is 32GB max / 2400MHz DDR4, dual-channel capable, two DDR4 SO-DIMM sockets
Ideally, RC: DDR4-2400 (1200MHz @ CL=17, tRCD=17, tRP=17)
M471A1G43DB0 do have the same specifications except the speed , PB: DDR4-2133 (1066MHz @ CL=15, tRCD=15, tRP=15) as it is known to work but with downclock to the slower one or could be unstable as reported here on this and this discussion.
Hope this helps you answer your query.

Hi spidey101 and thanks for your quick answer!
Could you please tell me how to check the informations about the already installed ram?
Is it possible to cjeck it from the BIOS itself?

First, you can use the serial number and check the part number and manufacturer number from the parts lookup page here (or you can send me the serial number privately if needed).
BIOS would only have small details to reference.
