Of course, if the budget is sufficient, 32GB dual channel is not impossible.

Because the ThinkPad T14 Ryzen version uses single-channel memory by default at the factory, its gaming experience is not good. Fortunately, it has an SO-DIMM slot for expansion. If you really need a game, you can add another memory to form a dual channel. The game frame rate of the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U can be increased by more than 30%. If you don’t play games, no matter whether it is 8GB or 16GB single-channel memory, it will not affect the experience.
