Hi there, R3Z4 -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

As per the HMM, the Discrete NVIDIA GPU, it’s soldered to the Mainboard thus not letting any upgrade to it.

 

Upgrading the board means upgrading the whole Motherboard, which might not be preferred since it may only give you a minimal upgrade in terms of performance. Please click here for datasheet.

 

Update us how it goes.

in fact I meant that is it possible to buy a graphic card and insert that to a free port on mainboard?? like that others do for RAM or HDD? 

is it your mean that there isn't any free port like that exist for RAM?

Hi R3Z4,

 

There are no free ports that will accept another graphics card.  There are system boards for that machine that come with 2 graphics cards, but the graphics chips that come with those are a few years old and can't be upgraded.

 

Regards,

Dave
