Hi,



So I have an i5 8250U which supports 32 GB maximum but according to the manufacturer's specification, it states the following:





Now I understand there is embedded memory in the motherboard, and one free slot to upgrade (at least in my model).



Currently the the on-board ram is 4gb + 4gb DDR4 in extra slot.



I'm confused by the "max 16 GB", is that total capacity limit? as in the most I could upgrade is an 8gb stick? Or is the "max" just for the onboard memory since this is a specification for a lot of models.



I'm sorry for my confused ass.



Would really appreciate if someone could clarify before I bomb out on a 16gb stick.
