Re: Lenovo z500 motherboard change

Hi erktnc , 


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Among the released Z500 variants :  Max discrete graphics : Up to NVIDIA® GeForce® G740M 2GB graphics with DirectX® 11  which you currently have at the moment. 


Other marketed variants have lower GPU as same presented on the hardware manual showing the motherboards offered (page 69).  Graphic memory  chip • Nvidia N13P-GLR/GSR (page 26)


You can check on parts lookup up for the current motherboard part number (it may also still have the stickeron the board) or call tech support for assistance on the purchase / part number recommended.
