Does Amilo xi3670 support more thanb 4gb ram?

Hi all,

I am very much new to this forum. Before creating this new thread I searched for similar ones but could not find any.

Does Amilo 3670 support more than 4gb ram? I am the proud owner of xi3670 and everything was going smoothly until now. Recently I had a memory crunch due to running multiple VMs, and I need to upgrade to 8GB.

The manual says, it supports only 4GB. Just wanted to check with all the experts out there about this.. Do we have any means to upgrade the RAM in AMil xi3670 to 8 GB?

Many Thanks,
Vineeth

The Xi 3670 has an Intel GM45 chipset which supports 8GB of RAM. But according to the datasheet of the chipset it only supports 2GB modules, which means that you would need 4 SO-DIMM slots to run 8GB. But the Xi 3670 only has two slots and therefore actually only supports 4GB of RAM.
Unfortunately the Intel datasheets are usually correct, in contrast to the ones of FTS.
