I got a new laptop with a 4gb ram (1600). Would performance be affected if I use an older 4gb (1333) from my t420?

 

T440p, Win8.1 pro, i7 4700MQ.

You should list your Operating System.

 

Read your Owner's manual.

 

Download it if you do not have one.

 

I doubt you will notice much difference in performance.

That CPU supports - Supported memory: DDR3-1600, DDR3L-1333, DDR3L-1600

 

Is your 1333 ram Low Voltage or regular, regular won't work.

Sure, everything will clock down to 1333 (well 666Mhz x2), but as hum said, you probably won't notice in practice.
