Re: Where can I buy a 2nd GT750M SLI gfx card for my Lenovo Y500 ?

2014-08-22, 21:18 PM
answer is no 750M had issues and is not for sale anywhere sorry :/ best would be selling your laptop and buy a y510p with dual 755M SLI instead.

That's what I was afraid of.  Since this thing is still under warranty, I wonder if I could send it back for a Y510?  Ha Ha..

Thank you All. 

( Please DO NOT HIJACK the post, and keep it on topic. )

 

1- I saw youtube videos (like this) of people playing games with SLI GT750M and they reported no problems whatsoever. Or are you saying that Y500 laptops that came shipped with two SLI GT750M's have no problems, only those to which a second SLI card was added later? 

 

2- Is there an official statement from Nvidia / Lenovo that the SLI GT750M is faulty, or another statement which says that a separate GT750M is no longer sold , and the reaason ? 

 

3- What's perplexing me is that I have been trying to buy one since the Y500 was released, and I never found a way to do it!  Why claim that the Y500 supports SLI GT750M, and at the same time offer NO such card in the market?

When I bought my Y500 about 9 months ago from the Lenovo website, they did not have any SLI GT750Ms available, but I went ahead with the purchase anyway, assuming that I would be able to purchase one at a later date.  I never saw it available until earlier this week.  I ordered the 750M SLI and got an email from Lenovo 2 days later, saying that my order was cancelled and that the card was no longer available, with no other explanation.  I made several calls to Lenovo and more than one sales rep told me to look on eBay or New Egg for a third party card.  I wasn't big on that, and no one has it anyway!  I finally got through to a nice gal in customer service in Raleigh, NC.  I explained that the reason I bought this machine was for the expandable graphics capability.  Now that that looks like it is not going to happen, I inquired about sending the Y500 back and paying the difference for the Y50 HD.  She understood my issue and opened a case for me.  She said that i should hear back by Wed of next week.  I'm not sure if I should hold my breath, but I think that my proposal was fair, since the product was sold to me as upgradeable and now that doesn't appear to be the case!  My machine was still under warranty but outside of the return policy.  I will let you know what happens..... 

 

As you probably know, you can get the GT650Ms all day long, but they won't work.

@dogrokket
Thanks for the info, keep us posted (although I am not in the US unfortunately; I bought it from the US Lenovo and had a friend send it to me to South Africa while I was staying there for study) .

BTW, where did you buy it from ?

Long story short:  A sales person put me through to Customer Service.  It's essential that you get to CS.  The rep was very helpful and understanding.  She took down my info and opened a case for me.  A few days later, I got a call from them again and after two phone calls, I have a new Y50 coming to me with an 8G video card.  Very nice.  I will send back my Y500 as a warranty return.  I had to pay the difference of about 500 bucks, but I was okay with that.  They credited my original purchase price.  All in all, I was pleased with the transaction.

This is why I hope Lenovo goes out of business. They release question product then stop supporting it before they even start. Funny thing is, the 650m isn't EoL but the 750m is, what a joke.
