Why is my MBP showing 2x4gb instead of 2x8gb ram @ 1600mhz? Help Plz.
I have 2 ram sticks of 8gb 1600mhz DDR3 each, installed on my MBP but my MBP is showing the following picture
I swapped the RAM sticks and it is still showing the above.
I checked the RAM sticks in an other computer and it does show 8 GB @ 1600 MHz.
I waived out the fact that the ram slots from the motherboard could be damaged because it does recognize the presence of ram sticks and it does work.
I would appreciate any help on this issue as it seems that I am the only one experiencing such problem...
Thank you !
Thank you for your reply, much appreciated.
Your reply is structured in two parts:
1 - What the system shows is what the system can support. According to your explanation my system can only support what is shown below, despite the fact that I have 2x8Gb in each slots: Memory Tab of my MBP
2 - Please find below a screen capture of the memory report:
"so going with higher speed RAM on the most part won't gain you anything."
I understand, however I would not mind as long as I could use 2x8gb installed instead of the 2x4gb displayed
Below is the picture of what is installed on my MBP:
Again thank you for your response, problem not solved yet.
