G580 processor upgrade


Hello, I have the G580 but I now realize that I need a much better processor.

The current processor is an Intel Celeron B830 @1.80GHz. It has the 988B rPGA socket.

Which processors would I be able to upgrade it to?


The following link provides information on the available models and processors that may fit your machine.





 However, change of CPU on notebook is uncommon and unsure that is doable as it could soldered on the mother board.

Was this information helpful?

Yes No
