    ROG Strix GL702ZC RAM and Accurate upgrade Information please!

    This is what I am looking for and I need to find out what type of 2666 to look for?
    I already know about the 2400MHz brands,I am thinking ahead and planning longterm for the 2666MHz brand sticks to better improve CPU+GPU Performance in the future.

    DDR4 2400mhz 16GB samsung PC4-19200 M471A2K43CB1-CRC

    Any helpful member's have Information to help me find the correct 2666MHz RAM for this model laptop would be greatly appreciated.

    RAM sticks with frequencies above 2400 MhZ will NOT work in GL702ZC.
    Asus simply refuses to release BIOS updates to include support for higher frequency RAM.
    People already tried installing 2600MhZ RAM into the unit and it didn't work.

    as mentioned these laptops wont take advantage of the XMP profiles when buying performance RAM.

    I recommend finding a kit with the Lowest possible CAS Latency around the 2400mhz mark. dropping from say 19 to 16 will have a bigger impact on overall performance vs a couple hundred Mhz.

    http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/memory...-speed-latency


    This link is a great writeup explaining how important CAS latency is when shopping for memory, looking at the table lower down the page you'll see that "slower" 1866mhz ran with a CL of 13 has in certain applications similar performance of 2666mhz @ CL18 "apps that rely more on total bandwidth will obviously perform better with the higher mhz, games however perform better with lower CL (while maintaining the highest mhz) since the data being requested is always changing"

    I don't care what your opinion is,I want the Information of the RAM type and model number and the like and I would like it posted in the comments section as I did.

    Example:
    DDR4 2400mhz 16GB samsung PC4-19200 M471A2K43CB1-CRC


    2666 RAM Designation here:


    please input ASAP.

    Thank You.

    Your overthinking it. Any DDR4 SODIMM “laptop ram” with work.*

    Just find a good deal. These aren’t iMAC’s that are only compatible with certain types..

    I wonder if there are 16Gb sticks...

    You can access the BIOS by pressing F2 button repeatedly immediately after you power up the unit from a shutdown or a restart... however, you will not be able to access the XMP profile because Asus locked the BIOS (they made 95% of the options invisible to us).

    For the record, that was not a personal opinion.
    Its' based on other users failed attempts to make 2600 MhZ RAM try to work in GL702ZC and what Asus said (that they do NOT support higher frequencies than 2400 MhZ in GL702ZC and that they had 0 intentions of releasing a new bios to support higher frequencies).

    Amazon sells so-dimm DDR4 2666 in various options:
    https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-Singl...r4%2B2666&th=1

    You can select which configuration you want, and the 32GB version seems relatively cheap now.

    Now,if they decide to release microcode support for the Ryzen 2700 upgrade to this laptop,would that CPU+Enhance the RX580 GPU in gaming?ginving fps boost to both the cpu+gpu?making for higher graphic settings?like very high or ultra?
