Lenovo B590 CPU Support

Hi, I got problem - question. My Laptop is Lenovo B590 Model: 37612YG , xxxxx. And my question is which CPU are supported by my mainboard ?

 

I'm asking becouse i'd like to upgrade my Laptop and in datasheet that i download from suport lenovo com there is some difference between Models. They are placed in 2 categories: Lenovo B590 HM70 and Lenovo B590 HM77. My is in first one and they are only CPUs Intel Celeron 1000 and Intel Pentium 2020. 

 

Does it means that other CPU's are not supported ?

 

Thx 4 youre Help !

Re: Lenovo B590 CPU Support

Good day.

 

Have a look at Intel's HM70 chipset CPU compatibility list: http://ark.intel.com/products/67419/Intel-BD82HM70-PCH#@compatibility

and you'll see the 1000M and 2020M listed, along with other Pentiums, but there are no Core-i CPUs.

 

Looking at the HM77 chipset CPU compatibility list: http://ark.intel.com/products/64339/Intel-BD82HM77-PCH#@compatibility

is where Core-i CPU support is found.

 

Does this help?

Regards.

Re: Lenovo B590 CPU Support

That's how I'd interpret the Intel information. I'd think you'd need to replace the system board with one having the HM77 chipset.
