System memory features
The board has two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets and support the following memory features:

  • 1.35 V DDR3L SDRAM SO-DIMMs with gold plated contacts.
  • Two independent memory channels with interleaved mode support.
  • Unbuffered, single-sided, or double-sided SO-DIMMs.
  • 16 GB maximum total system memory (with 4 GB memory technology).
  • Minimum recommended total system memory: 1024 MB.
  • Non-ECC SO-DIMMs.
  • Serial presence detect.
  • DDR3L 1600 MHz and DDR3L 1333 MHz SDRAM SO-DIMMs.

To be fully compliant with all applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, populate the board with SO-DIMMs that support serial presence detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to configure memory settings for optimum performance. If non-SPD memory is installed, performance and reliability can be impacted, or the SO-DIMMs do not function.

Note 1.5 V DDR3 memory modules are not supported.
