After watching several video's on YouTube explaining Lenovo's use of non matched ram I swapped mine out for a matched pair of Hyper X Impact right from the start and cloned the Hynix NVMe to a WD Black, putting the Hynix as storage.

There are several performance ram on the market and they vary in price on a daily basis because they are traded as a commodity.

Hyper X

G-Skill

Crucial Ballistix

Corsair Vengeance

As long as it's SODIMM, DDR4, 3200 Mhz, NON ECC, a matched pair to use as dual channel (2 x 8 or 2 x 16)

I dont know why lenovo has opted for Low timing memory for there whole lineup but this basicly makes us all the users , buy new ramm becouse whe are missing 15% performance, for a production cost of a few cents up to 1$ and a retail value of 5$. In my country same ramm same speed basicly identical but the timings one is R1x8 costs 80$ the other one is R1x16 costs 75$. Whe are basicly loosing 15% performance for 5 $.I bought a lenovo legion 5 pro Ryzen7-5800H / RTX 3060 GPU for 1350 Euro's and now have to pay a other 80$ for some R1x8 Ramm so that i may have the performance with what it should have allready shiped. Price goes up if i want high quality ramm like HyperX Impact , Crucial Balistics ,  Corsair etc.....those are 130-140$ easy.

 

Laptop is great but its a big  NO NO on there part for doing this.

It's 2666 and will run slower than 3200Mhz (not by a lot), but you might notice.

 

EDIT: Remember always buy a pair (32Gb 16 x 2)
