Re: Lenovo Z710 Upgrades ?

Good evening and welcome to the community.

 

Good news, and not-so-good news...

- Looking at your hardware maintenance manual: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?DocID=UM018924

manual page 56 shows your CPU to be socketed. Have a look at manual page 73 and you'll see the applicable CPUs. There are two i7s included.

- The discrete graphics support circuitry is soldered to the system board so it is not upgradeable.

 

Hope this helps.

In maintenance is written:

 

can upgrade CPU to :

 

7 Intel I7-4702MQ 2.2G 4cPGA CPU 102500541 N

7 Intel I7-4700MQ 2.4G 4cPGA CPU 102500540 N

7 Intel I5-4200M 2.6G D0 2cPGA QS CPU 102500644 N

7 Intel I3-4100M 2.6G D0 2cPGA QS CPU 102500645 N

7 Intel I3-4000M 2.4G D0 2cPGA QS CPU 102500594 N

 

But why I can see may Z710 Laptops with installed processor - i7-4710MQ with TDP 47W ???

 

So as for me I think it is possible to ugrade to - i7-4800(4810)MQ  or  4900(4910)MQ - HOW DO YOU THINK ???

 

Have anybody did it before???? Can we replace 4710MQ to 4900QM, and will start the system or not?
