Buy processor for laptop
Laptop CPU replacement is possible to improve or repair the platform. Even a budget, bought many years ago laptop can be compatible with more productive equipment. Replacement is carried out independently or in the service center, depending on the type of connector.
A lot of data about the operation will have to look at Amateur forums, because manufacturers are extremely unprofitable to share such information.
To collect complete information and opportunities for improvement will require:
- Open device Manager, find out the exact name. Or use the software to collect data about the system.
- Go to the processor manufacturer's website and find your model. To see all the data specifications.
- The main information is the connector, PGA or BGA. The choice of equipment and other characteristics depends on it.
If the socket has a PGA in the name, then there will be no problems, the replacement is performed as on a desktop computer. Owners of BGA connectors should contact the service centers, because the chip and the Board are soldered together, the replacement is made in the presence of special equipment, usually with a faulty processor as it is an expensive and risky procedure.
Choose the right option.
To properly buy a processor for a laptop, you should return to the specifications from the manufacturer's website. For example, the I5 540m has a socket PGA988 (G1) power of 35w. So you want to find a table with a description of all the chips for socket 988, choose the right one.
Using the comparison sites performance, it's easy to see the increase in performance after improvement. For other systems, the selection process takes place as well, the main thing is not to exceed the heat dissipation. If it is exceeded, the frequency will be reset, rebooted or even the entire device will fail.
Intel/AMD processors differences.
For maximum performance, it is necessary to change the chips with a large number of cores, frequency, supporting an increased amount and frequency of RAM. A good example of an upgrade is replacing 2 core i3 with 4 core i7. The heat dissipation of even the older I7 is at an excellent level and compatible with almost any cooling system.
In the case of AMD CPU - it is a replacement of A4 to the level of maximum A8, a10. In AMD chips it is worth looking at the graphics core of the chip. Some models with the same number of cores and frequency, have improved video core, which adversely affects the heat. Owners of a powerful discrete card should choose the optimal ratio of parameters, without focusing on the graphical component of the CPU.
Replacing CPU (processor) laptop, has become a
great option to revive even the old, budget device. With proper improvement,
the system will be able to work without problems even with the latest programs.
Photo processing, simple video editing, any text editors, and just comfortable
surfing will be available even on a 5-6 year old system.
