Yoga 510-14isk cpu upgrade

I've just purchased a Lenovo Yoga 510 14in AMD A6 1TB storage, mainly for the purposes of streaming on Twitch. However, upon trying to get my stream set up, it appears that the processor isn't really up to the task, which is incredibly disappointing on a £300-£450 price-point laptop, considering my old HP which was purchased over 2 years ago for £250 copes absolutely fine running OBS, Streamlabs Chatbot, Spotify App, Pepakura Designer and MS Edge, all at the same time.

 

Is it possible to upgrade the processor from an AMD A6 to something which can actually cope with streaming, or am I going to end up having to wipe this and return it?

 

Thanks in adavance!

Welcome to the forum.

 

These days CPU and GPU chips are usually soldered to the motherboard in order to minimise the product's thickness, so no you can't upgrade the processor.
