I have a Thinkpad T530 and I'm looking to upgrade the memory to the maximum size possible. I see that Crucial has a couple of 16gb memory upgrades for the T530: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/thinkpad-t530/CT7784897 http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/thinkpad-t530/CT3291588
However, the memory compatibility chart on the Lenovo website says that the maximum memory size for the T530 is 8gb: https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/pd012623
So it seems I am getting contradictory information here and I'm not sure if the maximum I can upgrade to is 16gb or 8gb. Am I missing something? Any clarification is much appreciated.

2X8GB is OK. The specs were published before 8GB DIMMs were available. Make sure you have the latest BIOS
