I see that you want to upgrade your laptop processor, in this case due to the fact that the laptop manufacturer is the one that determines the compatibility between the laptop itself and any Intel processor, you most contact the laptop manufacturer so they can provide you a list of fully supported and tested processors for your particular laptop model.
Keep in mind that Intel only manufactures the processors, but Intel does not determine compatibility with laptop systems.
Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. I have asked my laptop manufacturer and waiting for their answer, however all my laptop components as well as the cpu I want to get, are all made by Intel. So, does it happen to know if the i7 2670QM cpu is compatible with Intel's HM65 chipset on a 988 B rPGA socket?
Please keep in mind that the compatibility between the processor and the laptop system is not determined by the chipset, but by the motherboard itself, hence, even when we manufacture the chipset, the chipset is provided to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) laptop manufacturer so they can modify it as their our needs.
Now due to the fact that the chipset is modified by them, we do not know what limitation or changes they have make to the chipset, this is the reason that only the laptop manufacturer can provide you a list of fully supported processors for your laptop system.
Currently we can only provide compatibility information between Intel processors and Intel desktop motherboards located at:
Oh, I see. Thank you very much for the clarification Adolfo. Repped you.
