Upgrade Graphic card

2021-07-23, 2:59 AM

Hello, would I be able to upgrade my graphic card? I have Y545 with 1660 TI and I am no longer satisfied with it. Would I be able to upgrade it?

Good day.

 

Since the dGPU is soldered to the system board, only a board swap would accomplish what you seek.

 

According to the platform spec sheet: https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/Legion/Lenovo_Legion_Y545/Lenovo_Legion_Y545_Spec.PDF, the Y545 came with two dGPU options: GTX 1660 Ti and RTX 2060. So, you might be able to do it if you could source a board, but would it be worth the cost/effort?

 

Regards.

Hello @Mikegee1124,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

I agree with NateS on this most laptops are only made with the capability to upgrade ram and storage.

Most modern machines don't have the capability to upgrade GPU's

Hope this helps.
Regards,
