I am looking to increase the ram in myMacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) 2.5 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7.

BANK 1/DIMM0:

Size:   8 GB
Type:   DDR3
Speed:  1600 MHz

Manufacturer:   0x80AD
Part Number:    0x484D54343147533642465238412D50422020

I want to upgrade to 32gig can I do that and what do you recommend I use and where should I get it?

  • If you want to pop a second question showing your memory pressure from activity monitor and what your performance goals are, we might have some advice. Most of our graphic intensive macs are happy with 8 on Mojave and newer and very few (couple percent of the fleet) need more than 16 RAM. – bmike Sep 28 at 13:13
  • I use clean my Mac monitor panel and 9 out of 10 times it's informing me I need to free up memory. I would need some coaching to get what you are asking me for, Thanks Don – Don Johnston Sep 28 at 16:04
  • I accept that challenge. Would you read this post and tell me if it’s way too complicated / needs to be summarized or just needs an edit to be useful? apple.stackexchange.com/a/242415/5472 I will edit that answer based on your feed back and if you want to ask “How would I do a check to see how my apps use memory on macOS Mojave / Catalina (whichever you prefer)?” I’ll make you an answer to that question and link to the more technical post if needed. – bmike Sep 28 at 16:26
  • I’m thinking I don’t want to go into vmstat and virtual machines unless you are using them as part of why you want an upgrade. I think a new question would be better to help you get started on measuring RAM to get advice and make decisions. – bmike Sep 28 at 16:27

Everymac says no.

The RAM is soldered to the motherboard & cannot be changed.

16 GB of RAM is onboard and cannot be upgraded to a higher capacity at the initial time of system purchase or later.
