I want to upgrade from my Intel i7 3537U which is a two core but I checked http://www.techpowerup.com/cpudb/index.php?mfgr%5B%5D=i...... to explore my options and make sure my laptop would be compatible with stuff like to sockets and TDF but only one problem ,some of the upgrades I see a 4 or quad cores . Please tell me if this would be a problem our not ?
Also, every i7 cpu is quad core with hyperthreading. If it shows up in task manager performance with less than 8 graphs for cpu usage, you probably have a driver issue holding things back. You have a £200 + cpu in there already.
