I want to upgrade my AMD A4-3300m processor with an AMD A8-3500M.
Both are FS1 socket AMD processors that pull 35W of power.
AMD A4-Series A4-3300M AM3300DDX23GX
AMD A8-Series A8-3500M AM3500DDX43GX
I also read somewhere that the a4 die size is 226mm2 and the a8 die size is 218mm2. Does the die size in any way affect how it will fit on the motherboard or is the difference in size because of the number of cores?
Here's a link to my laptop (Toshiba L775-S7304) if it's of any use:

I know. Old copypasta is old, but I can't get any responses on any other forums.
