Processor upgrade MacBook 2010

I have a MacBook Mid 2010, Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, and two 1GB slots, each of which accepts a 1067 MHz DDR3 memory module. I know i can get more RAM but, Is it possible to upgrade my processor?

Update (11/13/2018)

Is it possible to adapt a MacBook Pro mid 2012 logic board (and other parts maybe) in this system?

Thank you for this answer !

Making a comparison between the mb 2010 A1342 and mb pro 2012 A1278 logicboards, it seems to be just lightly different.

Don't you think an adaptation is possible ?


Sorry guy a very different logic board! Review the ports the MacBook Pro has a few more and the size and alignment is not the same.

Sadly Apple's laptops don't have removable chips (thin laptops tend not to). Here's a view of the logic board from the backside: MacBook Logic Bd. The larger chip with the grey thermal paste is the CPU, the other is the GeForce 320M GPU.

As you already have the premium model (2.4 GHz) there is no logic board swap out possibility within the models series. Likewise there is no newer logic board possible either as Apple completely redesigned the MacBook in 2015. So upgrading the CPU is not possible,

But! You do have some areas which you can gain performance!

To start with, I would bump the RAM up to 10 GB or 12 GB.

The next area would be the storage. Here you could swap out the HD with something bigger, I would go with a SSHD from Seagate as the best option here as your systems SATA port is only SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) so you'll need to make sure the drive you do get can run at this I/O speed (many don't). The other option here is to take the big leap to a SSD. Just make sure you get one that has enough space. After you load it up you want to have 1/3 to 1/4 of the drive free more for the smaller SSD's. Again, you do need to be careful here to with the drives I/O speed some SSD's won't play well in a SATA II system.

At what point would bottlenecking occur though? With a 2.4 GHz processor would it be able to even make full use of the 10 or 12 GB of ram?


Process bottle necking has nothing to do with RAM size.

The issue is the shuttling of inactive processes in RAM to Virtual RAM (V-RAM) which is on the drive to make space for the current running process. So the more RAM the less stress of the drives I/O and the slower I/O access of the drive Vs real RAM.

Reference: What are the differences between virtual memory and physical memory?
