Re: Ideapad Y560, ram frequency.

hi Zecik86,


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


Lenovo Y560 was released with variety of Model configuration such as CPU Configurations

from Minimum configuration to Maximum Configuration for Consumer Choice.




And on Lenovo Reference Manual they indicated that specific detail for consumer use


also on Intel's website they indicated that on the Memory spec section

Intel® Core™ i5 

Intel® Core™ i7


If you will check Lenovo's reference manual it's the i7 Proc model I guess is what you should have purchased as it supports up to 1333 Mhz.


Best Regards
