Hi Guys,

 

I want to upgrade my laptop RAM, I know my software can handle it but can my hardware?

 

I'm running windows 10 home 64-bit.

 

 

System Model - Dell System XPS L502X
Processor        -Intel® Core™ i7-2720QM CPU @ 2.20GHz, 2201 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
 
8GB installed memory, in 2 slots.    (2 x 4GB)
 
 
 
Would this laptop handle 2 x 16GB?
 
 
Thanks,
Ash

2*8GB max.

 

Is there any reason behind this? Anyway I can do a check for to find this out for future reference? Microsoft says the physical limit is 128GB on a x64 based system.

That depends on how much ram slot do you have? DDR3 are max size 8GB stick so you have 2 ram slot so your laptop can handle 16GB max.

Ok, thanks.

 

Is it SODIMM I need? Would these be compatible:

There are different frequencies and voltages, but the above seem really quick. around 4.5ns absolute latency
