M90t - Lenovo AMD Radeon 520 bracket profile type?

2021-01-13, 16:47 PM

I have a very simple M90t question without my opening the cover. I want to upgrade my M90t (Type: 11D4 ) from onboard graphics to a dedicated graphics card. Which one of these two bracket models should I order?  Lenovo AMD Radeon 520 HP OR Lenovo AMD Radeon 520 LP?

 

Thanks much!

Solved! See the solution

"LP" means low profile when talking graphics cards, so I assume HP is high profile, or full-height cards, which is what your Tower system uses.  If you are ok not getting a Lenovo branded card, I recommend a GT 1030 DDR5 as it has two to three times the performance for the same cost.

Thanks much. You are correct regarding low profile and high profile\full height so yes, you have answered my LP - HP question. I will look into the GT 1030 DDR5. I will also have to ask Lenovo what I can and cannot add in order that I not lose my 2-yr. warranty.

Aftermarket graphics card and memory do not void the warranty, however if there is an related issue, you have to determine the cause, and if need be get a warranty replacement from that manufacturer, rather than it being a one-stop fix.
