Bonjour,
Je possède un pc portable ayant un processeur i3-370M ( 2 coeurs). Je voudrait changer pour mettre le i7-3630QM (4 coeurs). Ils ont des jockeys avec un nom légèrement différents PGA988 et FCPGA988. Sont ils compatibles ?

The sockets are compatible:

However, that is not the problem.  An upgrade processor (i7-3630QM) must also be chipset and BIOS compatible.  Going from a 1st gen processor to a 3rd gen processor is not possible.

To verify, you must ask the laptop manufacturer what processors are compatible with their laptop bios.
