    Downgrade i7 processor?


      Hi all and thank you for this great place to discuss Intel  I have a dell vostro 3750 with i7 2620 qm processor which has on chip graphics.  Our business runs on Ubuntu linux.  We have had good performance on our desktops, laptops and server running Ubuntu until the on chip graphics in conjunction with nvidia optimus.


      This new notebook with nvidia optimus will not run linux properly because linux technology is behind the curve.


      Can I downgrade my i7 to the 1st generation i7 with the same fcpga 988 socket?


      Thanks, penguin
