After almost 1 and a half year of using this laptop I started experiencing lag in modern games(like pubg etc.) and decided to buy a new gpu. After checking aliexpress I found the GTX 770M which is powerfull enough for me to survive 2 more years with this laptop. so... The main question is: Can i replace the gpu? I have special stand so pc won't overheat.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Good day and welcome to the community.
As is the case with virtually all laptops with discrete graphics, the dGPU and support chipset are soldered to the system board. There is no way to upgrade the dGPU separately.
Please have a look at the hardware manual parts table to see details of the system boards offered in the z70-80:
https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_g_z_70_series_hmm.pdf (pages 82-83). See page 27 to see the three types of graphics support options on those system boards.
Hope this helps clarify.
