Welcome to the Community Forums.
As per hardware manual specifications (page27):
DDR3 1066/1333 SODIMM (x2), Support Dual Channel
Up to 8GB DDR3 1066/1333MHz memory
Maximum RAM prescribed by Lenovo is 8 GB for you to have 2 X 4GB RAM DDR3 (1.5V) 1066/1333MHz.
DDR3L (1.35V) are backward compatible so it would work on a DDR3 motherboard slot on a higher pricing.
BIOS compatible certified upgrade to maximize the 8 GB are listed in the same hardware manual (item12 page91-92).
FRU part number: 11011934 DDRIII 1333 4GB, M471B5273CH0-CH9 (Rev C /2Gb/46nm)
FRU part number: 11012199 DDRIII 1333 4GB, HMT351S6BFR8C-H9 N0 (Vega/2Gb/44nm)
FRU part number: 11012320 DDRIII 1333 4GB, MT16JSF51264HZ-1G4D1 (Rev V69A/2Gb/50nm)
Hope this help answer your query.

Hi! What about
Any chance Lenovo can confirm that Ideapad Z570 support 2x8 ram please?
Your not the only one... 16 GB is supported, However, when Lenovo wrote the manual in 2010, an 8 gig ram stick was *practically* non-existant. ...and we all know how much the love to update things.

As several claims of successful 16 GB installation and with some having BSOD on the same discussion, certified performance done for the model design would still be 8GB and pushing it further to its chipset support of 16GB is untested therefore not certified.
Personally, if I have a spare 2 x 8 DDR3 1066/1333 SODIMM then most likely I will try it but not purchasing them myself.
Memory sticks have a longer lifespan than other parts and it is something that can be used for other newer generation to swap with.
DDR4 technology is now available and I am not sure if DDR3 would still be in the playing fields in the next 2-3 years so I don't see it as a good investment.

Good to hear that it works out fine.
Would this be with the CMSO16GX3M2A1333C9 kit?
Thanks for getting back to verify compatible upgrade with your Z570 running in 16 GB.
