Good day.

 

As commented above, your 610M dGPU is soldered to the system board. Looking at the HMM:

http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_g480_g485_g580_g585_g780_hmm_v1.0_english.pdf

there's only one obvious option to improve the dGPU and that would be to swap in an entire replacement system board. The manual hints that there is such a system board with the 630M (page 100, item #6, "N13P-GL 2G").

 

Hope this helps to clarify.

Regards.

Looking at your service manual I do not see an option to add in a dedicated video card. If correct your notebook computer uses the onboard graphics in the i5 or possibly a soldered in GPU chip and can not be changed. I would recommend contacting Lenovo Support via phone to confirm parts availability before purchasing.

Good Luck.
