Re: Lenovo G580 CPU upgrade

Those processors use ( rPGA988B ) socket which is also called socket G2

why can we upgrade to those three models only ! .. as i know there are G580s with Intel Celeron B960 !

all those models support socket G2 , so why not upgrade to any of them ?

Hello,

 

I have a new G580 with a Pentium. Can I assume that I can go with the same upgrades?

 

thanks,

Re: Lenovo G580 CPU upgrade

@feinverk: even if the socket are the same as long the BIOS doesn't recognize the CPU it won't work, although it probably quite easy for BIOS maker to add additional CPUID, but if the CPU have new features the BIOS need to be added with the feature also.

Re: Lenovo G580 CPU upgrade

OK.
Thanks for answering my question.

I had been purchased(ebay - 121usd) and installed CPU Intel core i5-3210m
The CPU works fine, except for Hyper-threading(ie CPU-Z programm shown-- 2 cores and only 2 threads)

maybe Hyper-threading must be activated in Bios?
My BIOS version 62CN34WW and no way to activate this feature.

If anyone knows how to solve this problem, I'd be grateful

thx
