Graphic Card upgrade

Hello everybody! 

I use my Lenovo Laptop (u41-70) quite a lot for gaming and recently while playing the game Nier Automata, I noticed that the game was lagging more than usual. Can someone help me out with this lagging issue?

Also is it possible to upgrade the NVIDIA GEFORCE 940M graphic card on my laptop to a NVIDIA GTX?

Re: Graphic Card upgrade

Hi frostuchiha,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


As with most laptops, GPU chips are soldered onboard so any upgrades on the video chip would be replacing the entire board instead as mentioned by bobdonkey.


Nier Automata does require extensive graphics so some players may choose gaming on full power performance with ac charger connected. Graphics settings are set to the lowest setting with anti aliasing off similar to this video


Hope this helps answer your query.
