I want to buy 2x8GB RAM. My laptop specifications are:
Product: HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 15-ec0066ax
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3550H with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx
Motherboard: HP 86D5
Current RAM: (2x4GB) Hynix SODIMM DDR4 2667MHz
While searching, i found it very confusing as there were many things mentioned that i dont know i.e. single or dual channel, can it support higher frequency, etc. Reading about these topics is not really helping and I couldn't find what is compatible with my laptop.
What are the main points that I should look into, while buying new RAM for my laptop?
What RAM should I buy (any direct recommendation) ?
It has 8 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (2 x 4 GB) - 2 slots are occupied - RAM.
It run dual (means two) channels now.
It supports 2400MHz that why it has Hynix SODIMM DDR4 2667MHz but its specs only says DDR4-2400. You may be able to install higher speed RAM (for example 3200MHz) but it will automatically downgrade to 2400MHz
The main point is COMPATIBLE, not all RAM sticks are the same. Normally you can use its manual or use RAM vendors tools to check. I normally use Crucial tool it is very reliable.
