I have a T430 with 16GB (2 x 8GB sticks) of DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) RAM. Looking to upgrade to a T450 or T460 and would like to swap in the RAM from my T430. Is this RAM compatible with the T450 and T460 series?

It tells you all you need.

Thanks.
16GB max7 / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity,
dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets
Looks like I'm good to go to swap RAM from T430 to T450/T460. Interestingly the same search for the T430 turned up DDR3, but the DDR3L RAM I'm using in it works fine.

doesn't T460 have DDR4 since its skylake?
but I think low voltage variants of sky and kabylake still had DDR3L.
