Hello!
Can I switch from an Intel Pentium 2020m (35W) processor mounted on a Lenovo G500s with a Socket rPGA988B to an Intel i7-2670QM (45W) processor?
Thanks!

You need to ask lenovo what processors are compatible with THEIR BIOS.  Then, you can select from those processors.  An upgrade processor must be socket, chipset, AND BIOS compatible.

Hello KrAtanasov,

 

Due to this product being discontinued, Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for it, I am glad to see that fellow community members have the knowledge and they jumped in and helped. You may also find the Discontinued Products (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/discontinued-products.html) website helpful to address your request.

 

Please keep in mind that this thread will no longer be monitored by Intel. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Best regards,

Jose V.
