Ram upgrade for Dual Channel performance

HP Recommended
Pavilion 17-cd0526na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

I Purchased a Pavilion 17-cd0526na 17.3" today, being delivered to me tomorrow. I'm told it comes with 8GB Ram installed as standard. I'm assuming this will be a single ram module installed in one of (hopefully) two slots. Which brings me to my main question.. I'm assuming this machine will take advantage of dual channel mode if I install a second matching ram module. Can you confirm this?

 

I will be editing video clips, touching in Hi Res stills etc, dual channel ram makes a noticeable improvement in overall performance during media editing etc so your answers to the above will be extremely helpful!

 

Many thanks

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the Crucial, UK memory/SSD report for your notebook.

It has two memory slots, and each one can take a max of 32 GB according to the report.

 

The HP service manual at the link below states the max is 2 x 16 GB.
