    Upgrading from Mobile Intel GM45 Express

    Lamies

      I've the Toshiba Satellite U505-S2940 (PSU52U-007005) with Mobile Intel GM45 Express (P7350 / 2.0 GHz) and I was wondering if I could upgrade it and what would be compatible with my laptop.

          We rely on the motherboard and system manufacturers to maintain such compatibility information because their testing requires the use of our processors (not vice-versa).

           

          The board must be validated for the power and thermal specifications of the processor. The manufacturer must release a BIOS update for the board with explicit support for the stepping and frequency of the processor. They should also provide any configuration changes or updates specific to the board. Compatibility and upgrade information must be specific to a motherboard, and it must come from the motherboard manufacturer which in this case is to be Toshiba*.
