I recently bought the Lenovo G5080
Processor: i3-5005U 2.0G
Screen: 15.6" HD LED
OS: Windows home
The RAM installed is a SAMSUNG NOTEBOOK DDR3 (SODIMM) 4GB 1600MHz
I would like to replace the 4GB RAM with KINGSTON NOTEBOOK DDR4 (SODIMM) 16GB 2133MHz
Will this KINGSTON RAM be compatible with my laptop? And, will all the 16GB will usable?
Thanks a lot!

Hi 0z0ne_b0yZ ,
Welcome to the Community Forums .
Recommended OEM RAM upgrade
Using the DDR4 may not be guaranteed to work , but instead 2 pcs of 8GB per slot as taken from the manual part list are tested to work for the OEM BIOS and chipsets.
Take time to review the highlighted links for reference.
Hope this help answer your query.

Thank you. I now better understand DDR3 and DDR4.
I would like to know which combination is better:
a. 01 8GB DDR3 RAM*
b. 01 8GB DDR3 RAM* + 01 4GB DDR3 RAM
c. 02 8GB DDR3RAM*
(KINGSTON NOTEBOOK DDR3 (SODIMM) 8GB 1600)*
