Hi Heron1337,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Your G50-80 can support more than current 4GB up to maximum of 16GB.

Adding similar 4GB PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, on the two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets would allow you to have dual-channel capabilities for faster rate interaction. 

 

Similar discussion here that you can review. 

Hardware manual here on page 41 for the steps.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi Heron1337

 

It would be best to order using part number for OEM brands as they are some instance that it may be picky but not always as long as general specs as your current M471B5173EB0-YK0 DDR3L (low voltage).

 

The Kingston 4GB 1600MHz (PC3-12800) CL11 1,35V should work  so get the resellers assurance that it is "known to work" with the model aside from return options just in case. 

 

Regards
