Lenovo ideapad Z580a Max Upgrade ; is GPU upgrade possible?

Hello, i'm an owner of a Lenovo ideapad Z580a , i7 3632QM , 16GB RAM upgraded after the latest driver update (there were 4GB ) , SSD Samsung 850 EVO 500GB upgraded  and Nvidia 635m (2GB integrated) .
Laptop runs smoothly after the upgrades but the GPU is a downer for me since im an architect. 
The Motherboard model is "Mobile Intel® HM76 Express Chipset"


Is there any way i can perform an upgrade to the GPU? 


even if the gpu doesn't physicaly fit inside the laptop i may be able to 3d print a new base chassis .

Hi Zak_Piper_21,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


I would appear that the GPU Nvidia chip is soldered onboard and is not upgradable similar to this article. It also do not have thunderbolt features for possible external GPU so I would rather suggest to invest on another machine that can fill in the requirements of your needed applications for a better economical reason.


I hope this helps answer your query.
