Lenovo Ideapad y500 graphics card - can i change it to a newer one?

So i've had this laptop since 2013 and it can't run the newer games without being on the lowest of low qualities. Is there a way i can switch out my graphics card for a newer one? I have the dual 650M cards right now.

If you want to scale up and change hardware you need to be buying quality tower. Not a notebook. GPU's are almost always soldered in and if a board would be available it would be so expensive you would not buy it either.
