Lenovo G710 CPU Upgrade Possible? (2019)

2019-12-10, 8:33 AM

Good Day!

 

As stated above i want to upgrade my Lenovo G710 CPU preferably to a Intel i7 4600M as there are some cheap on ebay currently.

I searched this Forum and found 2 posts regarding this issue and downloaded and read the Hardware Manual but the Answers were quite insufficient to me and maybe there will be a clear answer after this.

 

As there are more things to regard than just the Socket compatibility i am not sure what and where to check the rest so im asking the Support Team here for this issue.

 

Hardware Details:

 

G710 Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 80AH

Machine Type: Model 80AH59433578

Mainboard: Ginko 7A1

Processor: Intel 3550M 2.3G 2M C0 2cPGA CPU     

Part ID Number: 102500646

 

I checked it online on the Product Page and the Processors "Substitutes" is stated with "0" and now i am wondering if it that means it is really NOT possible to put any other Intel i5 or i7 CPU into this Mainboard.

 

So is it possible at all to upgrade the CPU or not? Thank you!

 

 

EDIT:

I found the compatibilities Section in a 3rd Post which did not appear on my previous search and i somehow couldnt access it via the Hardware Support Panel before. Now i found out that 4712 and 4702 are compatible but 4600 is not listed there. Is it because a) its not been tested yet or b) its not compatible and if its not : why exactly, as i cant see noticable incompatibility differences on comparing the CPUs on ark.intel.com.

Thank you

Hi Ds7887!

 

Welcome to the Community Forums!

 

We've checked the Hardware Maintenance Manual of the G710 and here are the tested CPU's for the computer.

 

 

We've also checked a few threads here and it is compatible to work on with other CPU's however the I7-4600M is not listed. 

 

Here's one of the threads from responded by our Senior Support Specialist upgrading the CPU to Intel I7-4702MQ Thread.

Here's also another thread for other CPU upgrade options Thread.

 

Hope this helps answer your query. 


Regards,

Jerry_Lenovo

Hi Jerry_Lenovo. Thank you.

 

As i stated in my opening post, i have read the Hardware Manual. Since it is a Hardware manual which is finished and provided with the Product and therefore remains not updated it obviously  contains no Information about later releases of Intel Products and their downward compatibility.

The links you reposted contain the 2 Threads which i already have read, as i said and contained no useful information on my issue so it is not necessary to repost them because this will only confuse people who google this issue, like me.

 

Also you did not answer my question whether i can use the 4600 or not, you just said that the 4600 is not listed.

 

So can i have a clear yes or no if i can use the 4600?

Apologies. The answer is No, it will not work as it is not listed on the compatible parts for the computer (Whitelist).
