Hey there, can anyone confirm if a 64GB build is possible on a laptop equipped with a Core i5-7300HQ?

I will be upgrading my machine to be able to handle more VM and would like to know if an up to 64GB ram upgrade is feasible on this processor on a laptop.

 

I have seen some online people cranking the same laptop as mine up to 32GB but I would like to know if we can go even further with this architecture.

 

Thanks!

You will need to check with your laptop manufacturer.

THey are stating that 16 GB is the max; but they are conservative about that figure. That is why i am asking directly here since their answers are vague.

 

As I mentioned, some users have been able crank the RAM up to 32GB.

The processor CAN support a max of 64gb. What the integrator/builder of the laptop supports is by their design. If they say 16gb, then that is the answer.
