Single Rank or Dual Rank memory for Legion 5?

Hello there,

 

I am looking to buy a Lenovo Legion 5 (2021) with an RTX 3060 and Ryzen 7 5800h with 8gb 3200mhz DDR4 dual rank ram for £899. I was wondering if I should just buy another stick of 8gb dual rank memory to make it 16GB or replace it with 2 single rank 1Rx8 8GB sticks from Kingston memory. Any help is appreciated.

Are you sure it comes with dual rank ram? My Lenovo 5 bought last year came with 2x8 GB single rank. Dual rank ram at 8GB module size is extremely rare these days.

 

Ram will be jedec spec so buy another of that, doesn't matter who from. XMP probably wont work so avoid.

I saw that Jarrod from Jarrod's Tech said that it came with dual rank due to shortages.
