Ivy bridge CPU on non z77 mobo? Tags: Motherboards Sandy Bridge CPUs Last response: November 24, 2012 9:30 PM in Motherboards Share dj3ntz November 24, 2012 9:09:19 PM I want to upgrade my laptop's CPU, but the motherboard only supports up to sandy bridge processors. I want to get an ivy bridge CPU, so my questions are... 1) will the cpu still work with the non z77 motherboard? 2) if so, what performance is lost due to this?
