Hi Trident1,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

The Processor this unit is Embedded to the motherboard and can't be replaced or upgraded.

 

Your Processor AMD A8 6410 APU is part of the Beema Architecture which supports 16GB RAM

    YES you can upgrade up to 8GB DDR3L 1600

                     This system can take up to 16GB MAX by using  2x 8GB Module 

 

Regards

Solid Cruver

I have the same question as you "lewdigital" - need to upgrade my daughters machine which is G50-45 with AMD E1-6010 APU WITH AMD RADEON R2 - Is this processor upgradable, or do I have to change the entire motherboard?

Re: G50-45 Processor and RAM upgrade?

Don't you mean 'Soldered' rather than 'Embedded'? 'Embedded' has to do with the architecture of the processor from what I've read. And I read somewhere that Lenovo is one of the manufacturers that solders their processors to the board.

 

Since the processor is soldered to the board, can it be upgraded? And, does it have to be in the same family(A6 to A6 or A8 to A8) or can it be up upgraded to another family(A6 to A8 or A8 to A10)?

 

Perhaps someone with Lenovo can answer this?

Hi,

 If you have a CPU with "U" at the end you have a soldered processor, they are all supported by ball grid array sockets.
