Ideapad Y400 upgrade

I got my Y400 in march and the newer version came out in April with a new graphics card and I was wondering if the Graphics card was compatible with my Y400. My card is the Geforce GT650m and can it be replaced with the Geforce GT750m and are their any other upgrade options for the computer too?

Re: Ideapad Y400 upgrade

hi EHaese,

 

 Welcome to Lenovo Community!

  

             The GT650m GPU is soldered in to the motherboard of your Laptop and cannot be replaced.

     Replacing it means replacing the Mobo aswell and getting the new one.

 

             The Ultrabay 750m might not work either as Ultrabay will function as SLI and will need the same Graphics Model which is GT650m inyour case. Like in this Post that two Different Graphics will not work as SLI

 

             -As a Graphics upgrade I would recommend the Ultrabay 650m so it will work as an SLI with your integrated 650m.

            and for other upgrades. you can check the Lenovo Personal Reference Guide for your model and Additional Upgrades like Maximum RAM,HDD and other ultrabay Devices

 

Hope this helps,
