Re: Lenovo g780 processor upgrade

Hi zah3b


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Hardware manual does confirm possible upgrade for the G780 on the FRU list (although a bit old 2012 edition).

It does shows probable of Intel Pentium 2020M as per specs here for a  i5-3210M.


Machine model 59366751 does have part number 102500433 Intel 2020M 2.4G L1 2M 2cPGA CPU as per parts lookup. Checking further with its Machine Type: 2182 (commodity on processors) would also show part number 102500301 Intel I5-3210M 2.5G L1 3M 2cPGA CPU being used for this machine.


Hope this helps answer your query.
