Lenovo m715q CPU upgrade

Hey everyone. I own a m715q mini with the 9700e CPU. I was wondering since this has the am4 socket if it is possible to upgrade it to the new ryzen Apu's. Has anyone done this yet? It would greatly enhance the preformance of the compute and graphics aspect of the computer. Things I am worried about is that bios wise that the newer CPUs won't be supported dispite it being the same socket. If anyone has any information I would love to hear it.

Re: Lenovo m715q CPU upgrade

Just purchased a RYZEN 2400GE 35W

but my M715Q didnt recongize it

 

cpu fan speed runs in max rpm after power on

no any screen output

 

my M715Q manufacturing date was 2018

BIOS is the lastest M11KT45A

 

original CPU is A10 PRO 9700E

 

still looking for a solution

 

---------------------

 

Lenovo is selling new M715Q unit comes with RYZEN 5 PRO 2400GE now

so I thought the CPU upgrade is possible

but now I don't know what to do with my 2400GE...

I believe the hardware are all the same, but that still means unless Lenovo mercy, otherwise the first gen of m715q won’t support ryzen forever

How to tell the difference between 1st and 2nd gen of m715q?

 

Me thought my 2018 m715q is 2nd gen by guess...

 

Now i know i am wrong...

Re: Lenovo m715q CPU upgrade

thats a good question, I think by the model number is the best way to figure that out.

Re: Lenovo m715q CPU upgrade

Sigh...

 

It is only meaningful to put the 2400GE on these 1L tiny machine

 

Otherwise just get a 2400G and throw to any itx case is ok...

 

Any suggestion? LOL

Wanna cry now

 

And the 2400GE is really a hard-to-find item too

It shipped from UK to HK...

Re: Lenovo m715q CPU upgrade

I dont think Lenovo will release the BIOS update for 1st gen m715q

 

Purchasing the 2nd gen mainboard and replace by myself would be an option. Although it is not cheap too. Roughly half price (mainboard only) comparing to the lowest config of a complete 2nd gen m715q.

 

Sigh...
