I have an HP Mini 110 with an Intel Atom N270 processor. I'm replacing the motherboard soon, and I was wondering if I could upgrade the processor to a newer Atom processor. Specifically, the Intel Atom https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/processors/atom/c-series/c3955.html C3955. I have a few questions regarding this matter.
First, is the swap possible?
Second, where can I get this processor?
Third, how would I go about replacing the processor?
So, to answer your questions, these processors cannot be swapped. Because these processors have such differing motherboard requirements and, because they need to be soldered directly onto their motherboard, they can only be replaced at the motherboard level. You will need to source such a motherboard from a third-party manufacturer (OEM or ODM). Further, you will also need to replace your DDR2 DRAM with DDR4 DRAM.
Hope this covers it,
