    Doubts about i7-620m


      Hi all,
               I am a student doing a project on i7 processors.I want to know
      1) If there is any watchdog supervision in intel i7-620m processor
      2) Can an i7 620m processor be used for redundant management i.e can i use two i7-620m processor's at a time so that if anyone of them fails, the other one should carryon the system without any interruption(a fail safe kinda)
          Any help in this regard can be greatly useful for me.Thank you

          1. Keep in mind that the watchdog is a BIOS/motherboard feature, not a processor feature.
          2. This seems to be a mobile processor, in order to do redundancy you need to have a motherboard that has support for 2 processor sockets, usually only server motherboards support dual socket, anyways as long as the motherboard supports dual socket and it also supports the Intel Core i7-620M, you can do that.
