Upgrade notebook PGA478 CPU options

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an over 5years old laptop that I want to upgrade the cpu. Just an excuse to crack this open and taking a look inside, i'm on two weeks vacation with not much to do.

My question is mainly on the socket 478 compatible and 90nm vs 64nm. This notebook is a 17" Fujitsu NSeries, that shipped with both Pentium 4 or Pentium M.


a) Mine is with Pentium 4 538: 3.2GHz, 90nm, 88W, 1MB, 533MHz

b) This same NSeries also comes with Pentium M 750: 1.86GHz, 90nm, 27W, 2MB, 533Mhz

I can grab a Pentium M 700's with nice 27W, 2MB L2 -vs- 88W, 1MB L2 Pentium 4 500's for $20 on ebay, there is no problem with that. Since there is Pentium T2390 with socket PGA478: 2Cores, 1.86GHz, 65nm, 1MB, 533Mhz, 35W will this laptop takes this 65nm CPU? or Pentium T3400: 2.16GHz, 65nm, 1MB, 667Mhz, 35W?

First, find what kind of chipset that you have to find out what it supports.
