    GA401QM-211.ZG14 max ram

    Does anyone can confirm the maximum ram for the lap top GA401QM-211.ZG14

    Is the 2021 model with Ryzen 5000 and RTX 3000. Asus page says that these new models support more than 40GB of ram, buy best buy site says that the maximum is 24GB so I'm confused.

    Thank you very much for your help

    My understanding is that 8gb of memory is permanently soldered. That means you are limited to changing one stick and anything over an 8gb stick will operate in single channel mode at lower performance. I believe if you have a larger module the first 16gb of memory usage would be in dual channel mode since it can use both sticks. But once the soldered stick is full any additional memory usage goes to the larger stick in single channel mode.

    So they come up with the 24GB number because the assumption is that you would use a 16GB stick + the 8GB of soldered memory. You probably can put a larger module in there but it will be a configuration untested and unsupported by ASUS.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi ayepiz,
    The model has 1 onboard ram and 1 slot.
    The slot support up to 16GB.
    So the combination of RAM varies. Each channel can be selling different version.
    Thank you.
