Welcome to the Community Forums.
It is possible to upgrade to i7-3540m, i7 3620qm or 3820QM having the same Ivy bridge core and socket.
But considering the BIOS recognition, it is better to limit your upgrade to those OEM whitelist her in the hardware manual (page 72).

I hope this helps answer your query.
