Do we think it's possible to boot 1x 16GB Module in a AMD A6-7310?

Hello, I'm looking to max out this laptop I just bought it's a pretty neat machine but I'd like to run 16 gigabytes of ram in there.  It's a Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15ACL model 80TJ with the AMD A6-7310 & the discrete AMD R5 M430 gfx chip onboard.

 

It's a single channel system & the manual states 8GB max but I really wanted to know if it would run on a 16GB module as long as it's PC3L-12800 spec?

Thanks

Manual says 8GB max, that's what I'd go with.  I think the reason why they went with 8GB is because that was the largest capacity for DDR3 sticks at the time.  I see now with a search on newegg, apparently there is NOW 16GB sticks available.  It's really hard to say, grab a cheap stick and give it a try?  Worse case scenario, send it back.  I've seen weirder happen.  My Socket 939 boards all say 4GB max in them because 1GB sticks were the biggest sticks available PERIOD.  But that didn't stop me from trying 4GB ECC sticks in them for 16GB....... 🙂

Thanks.  Yeah the price of the module does go up to about $100 vs $30 for 8GB.  Crazy difference.  I did want to try DDR3L 1866 16GB but I cannot find it.  I'll let you know what I find out.  Thanks

I see that now, oops.  The ones I was seeing on newegg for stupid cheap were ECC sticks.  Might want to double check maybe CPU world to see if the CPU itself will allow 16GB DIMMs?

Per the Lenovo Forums, and I quote:

"I can confirm unoffically (I do not work for lenovo) that this laptop is compatible with 16GB of DDR3L ram."

AMD A4-6210, do you think it supports a 8GB DDR3L-1866 module or a 16GB DDR3L-1600?  I bought a Lenovo Thinkpad 11e, well two of them.  I plan on testing out memory on them & I bought a couple 256GB SK Hynix SSDs.  Pretty excited to test out because the A4-6210 clocks to 1.8Ghz on Quad-Cores & the AMD Radeon R3 graphics supports full on Direct3d12 feature set 12_0.  So I can play Forza Motorsport 7, I hope.

 

Thanks

I would be surprised if it didn't support a 16Gb Module. Depending on the memory controller, it may downclock the modules speed if needed but the actual size of the module should be fine. 

 

Lots of manufacturers do not update their system specifications after being published, so when they state that the maximum is say 8GB, that just means what capacity they tested the machine with at that time. 

 

I am fairly confident that a larger DDR3L module will be fine. However before trying, Update the laptop to its latest BIOS as its likely over time they have added better memory compatibility since launch.

Thanks bro & merry christmas!  I'll let u know what happens when I get the Lenvo Thinkpad 11e series with AMD A4-6210 Quad Core @ 1.8Ghz & some DDR3L-1866 RAM that I will test on top of a 256GB SK Hynix SSD with ODIN Windows 11 PRO Ultra-Lite x64 installed with ~God Mode in the OS~, it's the sickest operating system I ever tested & 10x faster than regular Windows 11.

 

Check out what it looks like on the desktop and the right click menu on the desktop.

Thanks so do think a Lenovo ThinkPad 11e AMD A4-6210 QUAD CORE 1.8Ghz with 16gb ram & 256gb ssd on AMD Radeon R3 gfx codename Beema can handle lowest details Forza Motorsport 7?  It supports full dx12 features 12_0 & if I can overclock I will from 600Mhz to 800Mhz+ & if thermals become an issue I'll repaste and force the fan to full speed. 

 

Ps I'm starting with 8gb 1866 1.35v module cl13 & see if I absolutely need the 16gb modules.
