I am running HP Envy x360 with Ryzen 5 2500u and want to upgrade RAM from 2x4GB Samsung DDR4 2400 CL17 to something larger and possibly faster.

I could not figure out what is the maximum amount of RAM supported. According to HP, they offer maximum 16GB (2x8GB) of 2400 CL17 RAM for this model.

No info on AMD regarding maximum amount, does it mean there is no limit and in theory when 32GB DDR4 modules will appear it will be possible to use 2x32GB, but current maximum is 2x16GB?

I could see there is limit of 2400 MHz for my processor listed on AMD, does anyone have experience trying faster RAM? will it run full speed? downclock to 2400? Will I benefit from 2400 CL14 vs CL17? VEGA 8 looks to be RAM bandwidth limited.
