Dell E7470 - is it possible to get the new Intel 6050 CPU with Intel Iris graphics ?

Hi,

I have Dell E7470 and I'm considering a motherboard replacement. The board has i7 CPU with Dell Part # VNKRJ . I wanted to ask If the new board with i7 CPU 6050 and Intel Iris graphics 540 (Dell part # YDW8F) will fit on my laptop ?

In addition, If I purchased an i5 board (Dell part # 3GMP2) , will I be able to replace the CPU with the one that I currently have on the old motherboard and get an i7 board ? I'm asking because the i5 board is cheaper than the i7 board.

Thank you

While the boards should interchange, bear in mind:

Whatever board you buy has a CPU soldered to it - the CPUs cannot be replaced separately from the mainboard;  they are not removeable.

If the system is in warranty, replacing the mainboard voids the warranty.

All E7470 boards interchange - as long as what you're replacing has the same type of video (integrated or discrete) it should just drop in.
