Is m18x r1 compatible with the 3xxx series intel cpus? (i.e. 3740qm)


Recommended Posts

SkylineLVR is correct, the R1 (and all laptops built with the HM6x chipset) are only compatible with Sandy Bridge CPUs. On the desktop, however, many H/Z/P6x boards were able to be updated to support Ivy Bridge CPUs (this maybe the source of confusion).

In theory, the R2 can support both Ivy and Sandy Bridge, although I have not tested it, I do know other models on the same generation were offered with sandy bridge dual core at launch because intially Ivy Bridge was only available in quad core (if you are wondering!)
