Sony Vaio UX modded with Core 2 Duo U7600


See that? It’s the first ever Sony Vaio UX Micro PC to be powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo U7600 processor! Micro PC Talk forum member and modding madman anh cracked open his UX280P yesterday, removed the old 1.2GHz Core Solo U1400 chip, soldered the U7600 onto the motherboard today, and now has the world’s first UX capable of producing the Vista benchmarks you see below.


Amazing! The mod, he says, is definitely not for the inexperienced.

It requires an infrared solder station to desolder and solder SMT/SMD components. It also requires all needed equipments to deal with BGA components. And the last one is the experience.

Here’s a better image of what’s displayed on the screen in the first photo:


And a motherboard/chip shot for good measure:


Fantastic work, anh!
