Upgrading flex 4 for better gaming performance (graphics card, memory...)

I have a Lenovo Flex 4 14 2-in-1 Laptop, Core i5 with an AMD Radeon R5 graphics card. It does not perform well enough for gaming (playing Fortnite mainly). I was wondering about possible upgrades.

Will adding RAM help?

Is it possible to upgrade the graphics card?

Any other idea is welcome.

Hi YS77! Welcome to Community Forums.

The issue is a system limitation, recommended graphics to play Fortnite smoothly are NVIDIA GTX 660 or AMD
Radeon HD 7870. Adding more RAM will not really help, apparently the graphics card is not upgradeable as it's
soldered to the motherboard. Click here
