Hi guys can you please confirm the compatibility of my cpu swap idee :
I have a R61 with T7100 :
Name Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T7100
Specification Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7100 @ 1.80GHz
Package (platform ID) Socket P (478) (0x7)
Northbridge Intel PM965 rev. C0
Southbridge Intel 82801HBM (ICH8-ME) rev. B1
Graphic Interface PCI-Express
Mainboard Model 89185QG
And T60 with T7200
Name Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T7200
Specification Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz
Package (platform ID) Socket 479 mPGA (0x5)
Northbridge Intel i945GM rev 03
Southbridge Intel 82801GHM (ICH7-M/U) rev. B0
Mainboard Model 63696FU
I would like to swap the both cpu to increase the R61 performance ( just a bit i know ... )
Can i do that ? FSB and socket and different so i dont know i cheked the intel T7XXX serie seam to handle both socket but i dont know if there is specific version for each socket or if cpus are the sames.
Solved! Go to Solution.

thanks for the answer
well my understanding is that intel sell the same cpu line with same codename on 2 différents and incompatible socket ?
that crazy idea why they dont use different name for these cpu....
on both they said : socket PBGA479, PPGA478 or there is a mistake on this page ! other website say that 7200 is socket M only ok... so no swap thanks

I have no way to answer a question on Intel naming. A lot of things don't make sense to me.
