Lenovo G70-80 processor upgrade possibility??

Ok so this is a complete shot in the dark question. I have the Lenovo G70-80 i3, does anyone know if the same laptop was released with a better or faster processor? 

 

Wondering if it's possible to swap main board to something with a bit more power.

There's the i7-5500U version of the G70-80. Here's the part number for the main board: 5B20H70716

 

I'm not seeing any from eBay, but Lenovo's selling one (the price is rather steep though): https://lenovo.encompass.com/item/10647696/Lenovo/5B20H70716/Pl_System_Boards

Hope that helps.
