Dell Precision 3551 RAM Upgrade

Question:
Can you upgrade the system memory or RAM in a Dell Precision 3551 (2020)?
Answer:

System Memory or Random Access Memory (RAM) is a temporary memory used by the central processing unit (CPU) to store information that the operating system (OS) and software applications actively use for faster reading and writing. When a system doesn't have enough RAM or memory, it will use a slower SSD or traditional hard disk drive that makes the system run slower. So the more RAM your Dell Precision 3551 has, the more tasks it can handle simultaneously, resulting in more responsive and faster performance.

The Dell Precision 3551 has two RAM slots which you can use to add or replace with a larger one if it isn't already at the maximum size that the system chipset support. Dell claims that the Dell Precision 3551 supports up to 64GB of 2933 MHz DDR4 memory. Here are the memory configurations on Dell Precision 3551.

  • Memory Slots
