I was wondering if it would be possible to upgrade a Sandy Bridge processor, Intel i3-2350M to a new Ivy Bridge? I would love to have access to the Intel HD 4000, and the other goodies in it :)

My laptop is the Toshiba Satellite L775-S7105

Thanks in advance,

-Cody

**EDIT**
I was thinking of something like the Intel i3-3110M, the Intel i5-3360M, or the Intel i7-3920XM

I don't see why not.


They both use the LGA-1155 socket. [Source]


It doesn't appear that your processor has an embedding option so it shoulden't be integrated into your motherboard. [Source]


I don't see any mentioning on Toshiba's website about what chipset that mother board is using but you have a 2 in 3 chance that the chipset will support Ivy bridge processors.

I think mobiles use PPGA988/Socket G1.

Stuff to consider swapping CPUs in lappys:

1: Wattage-lappy power and cooling abilities are often mediocre/borderline. Swapping in a higher wattage CPU can lead to cooling and VRM problems.

2: Does the BIOS support the CPU. Nothing worse than swapping in a new CPU and have it run at half speed, or worse, not run at all.

Yeah, the CPU is a 2nd-gen i3. And apparently, Ivy Bridge is lower wattage than Sandy Bridge, so would that make a difference?

I would talk to Toshiba Tech support.

My gut feeling is it won't work. If you just want thing to open faster and the laptop to boot faster than think SSD drive.
If you need more processing power than that will not help.
