I know this sounds weird but would the new Ryzen 5 2500u APU be compatible with the FX Series boards on the Laptop (Since it supports DDR4 and is the same socket) ? If so maybe a bios update to support the new processor and an upgrade kit could be purchased separately?

    Hi,
    Short answer is no, FX-9830 is FP4 package while Ryzen 5 is FP5 and there will be many obstacles like TDP difference, soldering involved, BIOS support etc.
