H50-55 - Upgrading graphics

Hi.

 

This is my first post on this forum and I´m sure this topic has been thoroughly discussed, but I don´t have the time to browse through all previous posts so here is my question: I´m using a Lenovo H50-55 90BF00CMT and I ran a perforance test in Windows the other day and the results were very good except when it came to graphics. The two scores for graphics were both 1.0 out of 10! It also said that the graphic processor in my machine is a Radeon R7 and that it has no dedicated graphics card. So I want to get one. It´s not easy for me to know what to go for buying a new card like this on my Bantry CRB AMD A-10 Motherboard. Can someone please help me find a cheap and satisfactory solution so I can get my graphics up above 5 at least?

 

Kind Regards,

Joachim (from Norway)

Re: Upgrading graphics

Hi Joachimtobias , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

From a similar case discussion:

 

Based on the hardware manual  (page 83) for recommended add on card for this model listed as follows: 

Graphics
Bitland@R5 235@1G/A/DB/H Graphics part number :11202403
MSI@R5 235@1G/A/DB/H Graphics part number : 11202404
BITLAND@R5 235@2G/A/DB/H Graphics part number : 11202748
Bitland@R7 240@2G/A/DB/H Graphics part number : 11202407
MSI@Geforce GT 720@2G/A/DB/H Graphics part number : 11202746
VIDEO_CARD B@Geforce GT 705@2G/A/DB/H part number : SV10G56197
VIDEO_CARD M@Geforce GT 705@2G/A/DB/H part number : SV10G56198
VIDEO_CARD B@Geforce GT 705@1G/A/DB/H part number : SV10G52014
VIDEO_CARD M@Geforce GT 705@1G/A/DB/H part number : SV10G52015
BITLAND@Geforce GT 705@1G/A/DB/H Graphics part number : 11202742
MSI@Geforce GT 705@1G/A/DB/H Graphics part number : 11202743 

 

Listed are OEM reccomended upgrade tested on this model for compatibility and performance as the motherboard and BIOS would work best.

 

Without any changes with your power supply , you can get those listed as per manual.

Read further on the discussion here to check how fellow members were able to improve their graphics rating not doing much changes , enough for a cheper upgrade at the moment. 

 

Hope this answered your query.

 

Regards

Re: Upgrading graphics

Do you know if Lenovo updates that list or is it pretty set? I bought a Radeon RX550 in hopes that it might work. Having issues with the 4 pin at the moment. Any tips on how I can find a power supply that has the 4 pin ready to go ?
