That is correct Miccoo, the processor is soldered to the motherboard, so it is not something that can be upgraded like you might do on a PC tower etc.

 

Upgrades on laptops are typically limited to RAM and and storage (SSD/HDD)

Hi Jamesjen123,

 

Greetings.

 

You can refer to the answer on this post.

 

PN 01AG096 (Intel Core i7-7700 3.6G 4C) is the OEM highest recommended upgrade for the same Kaby Lake-S core, and Socket 1151 with 98% upgrade probability.

 

Regards
