Lenovo G580 - 20150 CPU and GPU upgrade

Greetings,

I'd like to upgrade CPU and GPU if it's possible.

Re: Lenovo G580 - 20150 CPU and GPU upgrade

Hi majkx,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

HM57 does support i7-3630qm and it does show 45% upgrade chance from an i3-3110M. The challenge is in the BIOS as challenged here in stilldsm (Message 31 of 37) post . Modding BIOS can pose danger in bricking the board.

 

To this effect Intel I7-3612QM 2.1G E1 6M 4cPGA Processor from the listed recommended in the hardware manual (item 11 page 101) would be a better option.

 

The GPU is soldered onboard so it cannot be upgraded.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards
