Can the same Framework 13 laptop switch between AMD and Intel boards?

Are the upgrade boards interchangeable between Intel and AMD?


Intel uses DDR4 RAM and AMD uses DDR5 RAM. They also use different wireless cards. If you buy the AMD mainboard kit you’ll get everything you’ll need.

So, you are saying the AMD mainboard kit works to upgrade an Intel Framework laptop.

Indeed. All Framework Laptops 13 share the same chassis!


Of course, that’s the whole point.


Note that it’s questionable if you really need a new wifi card. I have no good reason to believe there will be problems with the Intel one, at least as long as you’ve got a model ending in a zero, like the ax210. But on the other hand, 18$ for potentially better compatibility or whatever isn’t that bad.
