Ideapad z585 cpu upgrade

2014-09-28, 21:59 PM

I currently have this model with the AMD A10-4600M cpu. I would like to see if it is possible tp upgrade this cpu to something more? I would like a faster speed and/or better graphics. Can you please tell me if it is possible to upgrade this and if so what options are available?

Good day and welcome to the community.

 

Looking at your hardware manual: http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_z380_z480_z485_z580_z585_hmm_1st_edition_feb_2012_english.pdf

pg 71 shows the CPU to be socketed, so that's good news. Looking towards the bottom of pg 87, there are several AMD parts listed. While I'm not at all familiar with this line of CPUs, my impression is that you've already got the beefiest of the group.

 

Hope this helps a bit.

Regards.

 In theory, as long as the APU you would like to upgrade to is socket compatable ( in this case FS1r2), there should be no problem in upgrading, like to the A10-5750m, (which out performs the A10-5757 on the Passmark chart BTW.) The A10-4600m is a very good performer though, when it comes to 3D graphics; especially for the price, (trending at about $30, used, on eBay.) A used A10-5750 will cost you about $100. I wouldn't recommend the upgrade, unless a somewhat  small improvement is worth the investment to you. You might see better results through upgrading to OC'd RAM. Something like this, ( DDR3 PC3-14900 • CL=13 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1866 • 1.35V) is supported by the A10 seriese APU memory controler. Do check Passmark's RAM bench mark charts though, as not all RAM is created equal - even within the PC3-14900 class.
