If this is your model, > http://rog.asus.com/...=32#product_tab Shows it ships with the Intel® Core™ i7 Processor 620M/820QM/720QM : 2.66 GHz - 1.6 GHz, so assume you could upgrade to the 2.66 GHz but kind find no upgrade information from the product page.
That is my laptop exactly. So is it safe to assume that they all have the same motherboard and are therefore capable of supporting any of the mentioned CPU's? If you go by one of those CPU comparison pages, the 820QM would give me about a 10% increase in performance over the 720QM which is what I have now. I wonder if that's even worth the effort or cost?
The G73 has a turbo boost function. I think I read somewhere that what that actualy does is take my 1.6ghz quad core and turn it into a 2.8ghz single core. Is this really what that does? Because I I see very little difference in performance between the turbo and non turbo modes.
