T530 memory compatibility, contradictory information



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:


However, the memory compatibility chart on the Lenovo website says that the maximum memory size for the T530 is 8gb:


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
