CPU Support List

2020-02-14, 16:53 PM

I am interested in upgrading my M900 Tiny i5-6500T to an i7-7700T. The Q170 chipset & socket support and power requirements check out; however, I cannot find any documentation regarding Lenovo BIOS support. I know that the original spec sheet for the M900 Tiny did not list Kaby Lake support, but this was printed prior to Kaby Lake release, so please, do not point me towards the spec sheet. Thanks so much.

There are times where a generation of ThinkCentre supported two generations of Intel processors.  But in this case, since Kaby Lake was supported in the next gen M910, I doubt that Lenovo went back to add support to the M900, since none were sold with Kaby Lake.  I'd not suggesting that it couldn't work, and you shouldn't try, but the chances are low.  If you do, please let us know the results. 


Update:  this applies to other generations of ThinkCentre as well.
