Can I increase Surface PRO RAM

In Surface Pro, is it possible to upgrade the RAM? Say I want upgrade 4 GB to 8 GB RAM. Is it possible? If yes, what is the maximum limit?

Thanks & Regards,

Ram

Has anyone tried desoldering it yet?

I'm sorry, but you can't increase the Surface Pro's RAM. The chips are soldered directly to the motherboard. Check out step 14 of the Surface Pro teardown in order to see for yourself :)

John is right — the SSD is replaceable, but opening the Surface Pro is terrible.

Here is a shot of the actual SSD found in the Surface Pro:

From the teardown: "The Micron RealSSD C400 packs 64 GB of storage capacity. It can read 500MB/s and write 95 MB/s — all in a tiny 1.8" form factor."

What the fuc...k

if you want to crack out a soldering iron and order some surface mount ram with the same pin configuration you can replace it.

It is not fault from manufacturer. It is design specific, You also cannot upgrade iPadPro. I prefer surface pro over iPadpro due to double amount of ram and storage within same price bracket. Please dont compare it with laptops. and buy laptop if you need future up gradations.

door

It is starting to be laptops as well. I just discovered that all of our HP EliteBook 1040s (G2, G3, G4) cannot have their RAM upgraded. It is soldered to the board.

It sure pays to thoroughly research BEFORE you part with your precious money. I've save $100's even $1000's for self and friends.

I upgraded my ram and resolder the ram back in the exact way it came out and went from 8gig to 16gig in the i7 surface pro 6 do YESS IT IS DOABLE!! Just take your time and pay attention to what you are doing and don’t Solder the wrong thing or buy buy motherboard! So the answer to your question is YES IT IS POSSIBLE!

RAM, no. Storage (SSD), maybe.

A regular consumer does not have the engineering or technician skills to do micro-soldering. For regular consumers soldering RAM onto a computer motherboard is risky, because they can damage the device, it voids the warranty.

This is planned obsolescence, which is a DESIGN FLAW. It screws consumers. What kind of consumer-ignorant profit-hungry @%^$$@$ product manager would make that product design? Consumers have to boycott such product manufacturers. It creates more eWaste, and !#^&@! off consumers.

I agree - I'm skilled at soldering (30+ years) and yet I no longer do any SMT chip replacement. Too many instances of things going wrong - things I can fix but usually not worth the time, effort and expense.

door

I agree to your statement, but if I do it for my own use, and purposes, it is worth it.

I've done SMT components in the past.

Have to have patience and a steady hand to a good outcome. Cannot use a regular soldering iron either. Need one with an extra fine tip.

Plus, cannot apply heat too long.

Too much, can damage component, and possibly motherboard as well.

Best not to do it, unless you know what you doing, and confident in your ability to successfully complete the task.

SSD - yes, can replace it up to at least 256GB

HI! How we can do it?

You simply need to buy an SD card, and there is a slot right in the side of the tablet. Keep in mind that this is not RAM, it is storage, so it will not make your Surface Pro any faster.

door

SSD and SD aren't the same. You'd need to crack open the tablet to replace the *SSD*

door

@murob2 completely different. MicroSD is what you can add for transfer or additional storage but the SSD inside is what holds the operating system and is MUCH faster. It can be replaced with a like item but if larger capacity if one wants to open the surface casing.

door

@Andrew Blaze , on the Pro 7+ , there is a door to open to replace SSD.

There is 512gb model of 2230 size m.2 as well.

It is soldered onto the board and the thickness or cost is actually secondary. The design specification of Modern Standby actually mandates soldered RAM for security concerns.

"Modern Standy" as you call it is a flawed design design. It is really just part of planned obsolescence, which is a DESIGN FLAW. It screws consumers.

@Richdev Boston Why is that my problem and why do consumers stand for all customers? Microsoft has significant enterprise customer base, which will benefit from machines equipped with Modern Standby.

Sadly, as stated above, there is no way to upgrade RAM unless you crack the Surface Pro open and desauter the old RAM and replace it with a new one with the same connection points.

Hasanainalsaid, unfortunately, you wouldn't even be able to replace the chips, because the chipset is configured per device, meaning it will only recognize the manufacturer amount of RAM. You had a great idea, because you would think that, for an i86 board, a standard chipset would be used, but no, Microsoft didn't go that route until much later in the Surface/Surface Pro series.

which surface pro can you upgrade the ram in

door

Mason,

There is no Surface Pro that you can upgrade the RAM. It doesn't exist. Sell it and buy something with more RAM, or learn to live with the RAM it came with.

Since ReadyBoost caches your RAM to a NAND device, you're not going to need or want to use a USB drive. The storage on the Surface Pro is implemented with a 6Gb/s SSD already, meaning that if ReadyBoost is enabled, you can simply use the main storage device for caching.

If you are having space issues on your storage device, I would recommend a 256GB SD card. You can move some of the data from your SSD drive to the SD card, and then use the SSD for faster caching with ReadyBoost.

What about trying ReadyBoost with a USB? Access may not be as fast as DDR, buts it is better than a cracked screen from trying to open the Surface up!

It cracks me up to hear "NO, it can NOT be replaced because it is S-O-L-D-E-R-E-D to the board!!!"... as if that's some nightmare scenario.

🎵Dunn... Dunnn... Duuunnnnnnnnn.....🎶

No one gave birth to a motherboard that came out with every component already attached. It had to first be soldered on, which means it can also be DE-soldered, which in turn means it can then be RE-soldered! While YOU may not be able to solder/de-solder components, that doesn't mean it's an impossibility for everyone. I've been fixing devices for friends/family, creating electronic projects, and doodling with various PCB's for a couple of years now and I could easily replace the "impossible to replace" RAM, all while possessing only a "self-taught, hands-on" education in electronics.

Bottom line: If a component is soldered to a pcb, then it can be replaced.
