I'm looking to upgrade my RAM to its MAX. The virtual Assistant didn't help massively, so wondering if someone can give me exact specifics on what I can get it up to.
My current video editing software requires 16GB minimum to run smoothly and I'm sat at the factory 8GB.
- Dual channel memory architecture
- Two DDR4 SODIMM (260-pin) sockets
- Supports up to PC4-17000 (DDR4-2133)
- Supports 2 GB, 4 GB, and 8 GB DDR4 SODIMMs
- Supports up to 4 GB on 32-bit systems
NOTE:32-bit systems cannot address a full 4.0 GB of memory.
- Supports up to 16 GB (unbuffered) on 64-bit systems
NOTE:Maximum memory shown reflects the capability of the hardware and can be limited further in the operating system."
Does this mean I can have 16GB total unbuffered? Or that each slot can take 16GB unbuffered RAM?
What is the best upgrade option for me?
Thank you all in advance.

Your PC has two memory slots, and each slot support a maximum of an 8 GB memory chip.
So the total memory supported would be 2 x 8 GB of memory.
Here is the link to the Crucial memory report for your notebook.
The first 8 GB chip listed would be a compatible one.

You're very welcome.
Your PC's processor cannot run the memory any faster than 2133/2400 MHz, so while a DDR4-3200 memory chip would work, it would only run at 2133/2400 MHz.
