Upgrading N586 CPU to A10-4600m

2013-01-27, 18:56 PM

I have heard of many people upgrading their AMD A6-4400m to the more powerful A10-4600m as they are the same socket (FS1r2) with great success. I was planning to do the same and wondering if its possible to switch them out on a lenovo laptop and if the drivers are available if I succeed in changing it. 

 

Anyone happen to have any experience with this that can provide some input?

Go back to the old A6 APU. The upgrade should have worked. Assuming no ESD occurred, the new APU should have worked. I upgraded to the A10-4600m with no problem. Technically, the N series IdeaPad should be upgradeable to the A10-5750m (which is rated higher performance on the passmark mid-high range chart than the A10-5757m.) My guess is that you got a bum APU.

 

BTW - A10-4600m APU's are currently trending @ $30.00 on eBay

I don't know why you would suggest the A10-5757m. It doesn't even perform as well as the A10-4600m. The A10-5750 out performs both the A10-4600m and the A10-5757m, with a Passmark high mid-level CPU score of 3,376. The A10-4600m scores a good 3,121 and, the A10-5757 falls under that with a score of 3,095. (In my N586, the A10-4600m scored a smooth 3,454. Hardware, software and environmental variab

You didn't actually read my comment, did you? I clearly said, "Technically, the N series IdeaPad should be upgradeable to the A10-5750m (which is rated higher performance on the passmark mid-high range chart than the A10-5757m."

So, what part of the A10-5750 is rated "higher performance...than the A10-5757m." did you not get? I was simply trying to inform the upgrade seeker that a higher CPU series number does not necessarily translate into higher performance. And, since the A10-5757 is the highest numbered A10 mobile processor, I sought preemptively exclude it from this discussion as a possible upgrade option.

Okay?
