so i have this hp envy dv6 notebook pc with

 

Processor= Intel® Core™ i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz, 2401 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

GRAPHICS= intel HD graphics 4000

Installed Physical Memory (RAM)= 8.00 GB

BIOS Version/Date= Insyde F.26, 4/3/2013
 
but i have used this machine for long, and i think it is affecting its performance.

but i like this machine so much to throw it away for other laptop.

 

so i thought of replacing or upgrading some of the replaceable or the upgradable components in it from the motherboard to the least replaceable ones

 

MOTHERBOARD=  

Hewlett-Packard 1819
 

what do u suggest i do

The best way to get performance is to buy an SSD.  The model will be found in the Battery Bay.  It can't be the latest model if it is a Core i7-3630QM, that is an older CPU.  Later I will suggest a CPU, but don't know if you want to go that far.

Do you game on the pc?

 

Do you watch how much RAM is being used?

 

Replacing the CPU is expensive.  The cheapest one I see is about 160.00 US.

 

Again, and SSD would be a good upgrade, and a newly installed Operating System may help also.

so, what CPUs of  core i7 can i replace with the current one , either higher of the equivalent performance

Replace CPU of a laptop is usually very hard, if even possible. The fastest i7-3XXX mobile CPU I can know of is the i7-3940XM, and the difference is just clock speed and cache size.

 

The best you can do is to get a SSD, it can make HUGE difference.

 

It would be better if you tell us what you're doing on your laptop, so we can give some advices on what to upgrade.


CPU: Intel i7-8700K 5.3 GHz ------ RAM: 32GB TridentZ 3600 MHz CL16 ----- Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximus X Formula ----- GPU: Zotac GTX 1080 Ti Amp! Extreme ----- Storage: Samsung 960 Pro 1TB -- Samsung 850 Pro 2TB x4

1. Again, and SSD would make this pc very fast and would be the first thing most would upgrade.  If you keep lot's of things stored on your HDD you may need external storage because an SSD is usually smaller in Storage Space.

 

2. Again, RAM is always good if you are running out with all the apps that you run.  Aftermarket RAM may give a little boost also but expensive.

 

3. Tune up the Operating System.

 

4. If it were me would go with this one Intel Core i7-3840QM, but wait till you do the SSD to see if that is enough for you.

 

5. And follow this tutorial to show us all your Specs.  This will better help us to guide you.

i7-3940XM is very expensive and may not worth it for the extra performance.

 

Agree with pcpunk that SSD is a must for every modern PC.
