Hp EliteBook 8560w memory upgrade

HP Recommended
Elitebook 8560w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
My notebook right now has 2x4gb 1333mhz I would like to upgrade to 2x8gb 1600mhz.

From the specs I can tell that the notebook will support up to 32gb of ram but will it support 1600mhz speeds...??

Ps. Cpu is i7 2820qm which definitely supports up to 32gb ram at 1600mhz...

You can upgrade to supported higher RAM speed but it will automatically downgrade to 1333MHz. Please use RAM from the following reliable vendor

 They say:  These upgrades are guaranteed compatible when you order from Crucial.com

From CPU to RAM there is a bridge. You can install higher RAM speed (if supported) but the bridge will have the last call.
