Low Usable RAM on a new HP Laptop

HP Recommended
Pavilion Gaming 15ec0100ax
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

I bought a new HP Laptop(Pavilion Gaming 15ec0100ax) a couple of weeks back and recently was showing the specifications to a friend when I noticed that my RAM is showing as 8.00 GB (5.92 GB usable). My previous Lenovo Laptop also had 8 GB RAM and Windows 10 but it gave me 7 GB of usable RAM. Can someone help me with this as I would like to use as much of my RAM as possible. Thank you. I have attached a screenshot of my computer's properties.

Hi:

 

Your notebook was designed that way on purpose.

 

HP released this document a while back, which explains the memory shortage...

This seems to only apply to models with AMD Ryzen processors.

Info on Microsoft PlayReady.
