Did AMD ever come out with the ZM-88?   It's listed in wiki, but I can't find anyplace that sells it-(all the usual suspects- ebay, amazon, etc).  I'm not terribly surpised if my info is incorrect, but if anyone knows the answer, I'd appreciate it!

I have to open up my old HP G60 243CL and I figure as long as I'm in there, I'll replace the RM72 processor (with the S1g2 socket).

Thank you for your help--

btw, this laptop has been upgraded to 4gb memory, Windows 7 x64, and a Vertex 2 SSD.

I do believe they made it but it's very outdated so you aren't liekly to find one.

FWIW, if you're looking to improve laptop performance an SSD makes a much bigger improvement than a CPU upgrade, IME. The 2.5" HDDs used in laptops are excrutiatingly slow. They are the slowest component in your laptop by far. Many of us have swapped an SSD in and seen a significant improvement in laptop performance.

Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.

Yes- As you can see, I'm running a Vertex 2 SSD.  I know it's outdated, but this laptop has plenty of life for my purposes. I thought as long as I am opening it, an upgraded processor would be the thing to do.  ZM-87's seem to be plentiful, but I can't find hardly a peep about the ZM-88.  As long as I'm doing this, I thought  I'd try to put the largest CPU possible, even if there's not alot of difference in performance.  Thanks for your reply.   I'm just wondering if anybody knows the definitive answer.  Best,  johnnybee

That laptop was built to very tight thermal constraints, so I doubt if it could even handle a higher processor. Also I highly doubt HP even has BIOS support for any processor other than whatever models you could customize that laptop with at the time of purchase.

Thanks- Yes, the ZM-series is supported.   Just looking to know if they ever made the ZM-88?  I'll probably go ahead an purchase a ZM-87, but curiosity killed the cat, and I didn't know where else to ask.  Thanks for your reply!  Best,  Johnnybee

The ZM series may be "supported" by the socket/mobo but if you can't get a BIOS upgrade from HP the CPU would do you no good if it can't be recognized.

There is no place special to post your inquiry. You could try AMD tech support but IME they have no clue so it could be a waste of time.

Thank you, sir.  This HP laptop supports the ZM series.  Page 1.

I'd like to ask my question another way.  Has any reading this ever owned or laid eyes on a computer with this processor?  Thanks for your reply.  Best,  Johnnybee!

BTW, if anyone is interested, the ZM-87 runs beautifully.  Doubling the cache does make a difference.  With new Tunix grease, it runs cooler than the old RM CPU!
