Processor upgrade with T440p

#1 Post by sebileis » Thu Jul 12, 2018 9:24 pm

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know what the fastest processor is that can be used in a T440p is? I'm curious to see how much I can upgrade this baby.

That would be either i7-4900MQ or i7-4910MQ (or i7-4760HQ).
See this: https://www.notebookcheck.net/4910MQ-vs ... 596.0.html
The MQ models are socketed, the HQ model needs to be soldered, so is not really a contender here.
They'll work, but they are still not really suited for a 14" laptop, as they run rather HOT.
You'll also need a 135W charger with those.

There are some HQ models available that are soldered onto a PGA946 adapter, to enable installation on socketed boards.

There's one particular success story, with an i7-4980HQ (the one having Iris Pro Graphics 5200 with 128MB eDRAM) running in a T440p: https://old.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comme ... pro_works/

However, before you get too excited, there's horror stories as well: https://old.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comme ... om_taobao/

Thanks, I was wondering what is the fastest CPU I can put in a T440p while still being able to use a 90W power adapter? I don't really want to shell out the extra money for a genuine power adapter, those things are expensive!

Does your t440p have the Nvidia discrete graphics option? It is my understanding that a 135W charger is only necessary if you intend to run a quad-core processor with the discrete graphics option.

If you don't, I believe a 90W would be sufficient.
