What is the maximum RAM for HP EliteBook 840 G3?
I have seen specs with 16 GB but also with 32 GB.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
It depends on the CPU since the northbridge is part of it and the days of the BIOS dictating it have been over for at least 10 years.
Based on what I can find, this is a 32GB across the board machine - it isn’t part of the generations where it was either 16/32GB depending on how much you or the previous owner spent, which dictated if it’s an i5 or i7. The lowest end “common” CPU (i5-6200U) is a 32GB part. Even the i3-6100U is 32GB capable, although this isn’t as common - thankfully.
However, it was only validated for 16GB. You are on your own since HP stopped at 16GB since you do not know why - early boards could have an issue beyond 16GB but may be corrected on later ones.
Now that I own a 840 G3, I did some of my own research so I knew what it can accept when I inevitably want to upgrade my RAM from 8GB. Since the time I wrote my answer, the G3 is now officially listed as a 32GB system per HP on the spec page and the datasheet. So it’s official - 32GB.
The snag with these is they are a little picky about the modules you install, so you can’t stick a lot of no-name memory in these. However, any reputable brand is typically fair game. The HP BIOS used on the Elite series really does not like inconsistent memory.
