I have an HP Pavilion G7 Notebook PC and it currently has 1.50 GHZ as the processor speed and I am wanting to know if this processor is compatible with my machine. AMD Phenom II N660 3 GHz Processor - Socket S1 PGA-638. PHENOM II N660 MOBILE S1 3.0G 2MB 45NM 35W 1800 MHZ TRAY AMDMOB. Dual-core (2 Core)
My processor is a quad core currently.
A 200 Mhz bump in clock speed will be unnoticeable, and, most likely, considered to be wasted money afterward. You'd likely achieve better gains with a fresh OS install, or an increase in memory, as adding an SSD is not easy in light of HP's recovery partition.
