    i7 4700MQ upgrade (enable VT-d)


      Hello Community!


      I have a question about upgrading i7 4700MQ. Currently I have a Lenovo G510 with i7 4700MQ. Everything works great except that the current processor doesn't support VT-d (as far as I know). I have search for some references and found out that i7 4700MQ and i7 4800MQ are quite similar (please correct me if I'm wrong). Therefore I wonder if it is possible to simply upgrade the processor. If it couldn't be done, I wonder if there is a way to enable VT-d within my laptop.


      Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks a bunch!
