Solved Changing Sandy bridge to Ivy Bridge Mobile CPU? (Y570) Tags: Sandy Bridge Processors Intel i5 Laptops Last response: October 4, 2012 1:08 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share azathoth a b D Laptop September 26, 2012 1:37:31 AM After several attempts at trying to communicate with the 'Tech Support' center for Lenovo, I decided to try a different option. Does anyone over here know if it is possible to replace my i5-2410m (Sandy Bridge) processor with a i7-3615QM (Ivy Bridge) processor? I know I can change it out for an i5-2670QM, (Sandy Bridge). But there seems to be zero documentation as to replacement with an Ivy Bridge chip.
