You can upgrade your HP EliteBook 8460p Laptop to up to a maximum memory capacity of 16GB Memory.

DDR3L is a dual voltage capable memory DIMM, which supports operation at both 1.5V and 1.35V. DDR3L is also pin-compatible with DDR3!

DDR3 is a single voltage capable memory DIMM, which supports 1.5V operation only.

Basically you can use either.

Here's the ifixit HP Elitebook 8460p memory replacement guide which may help.

Here are the specifications for the laptop which show that DDR3 PC3-10600 SDRAM (1333 MHz) is used but as @v3nuo stated DDR3L will also work as well as it it dual voltage.

It also shows that the laptop supports a maximum of 16GB (2 x 8GB)


thanks for the comment!

my lap Standard type is DDR3 PC3-10600 SDRAM (1333 MHz)

if i use 1600mhz will be any effect?

2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/303528191523 - 1600MHz


Hi @ cyber ops

It may depend on what exact CPU model you have. It may only go to 1333MHz so the 1600MHz ram will work at that speed i.e. 1333MHz

It really doesn't matter as you won't be able to notice the difference anyway.

You would be better off replacing the HDD with a SSD (if there isn't one there already) to really see an improvement in performance

RAM can only do so much.

The bottleneck in laptops are the chipset, CPU and the motherboard design and there is a limit to what you can do and no more to get performance improvements.

Your laptop was designed 10+ years ago, which is a lifetime in computer terms. It is showing its age and it may become a matter of economics as to whether to spend money or not for very small improvements in performance
