Hi katsas , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

As in most laptops , changes or upgrade would be like replacing the entire systemboard since the discrete VGA chip is machine soldered onboard so its not recommended for upgrades .

 

Other Yoga 500 models would have same NVDIA chip as an optional specification (page26):

• Integrated Graphics: GT2 or GT3, According to different
CPU/AMD Carrizo APU
• Discreted Graghics (Option): Integrated/Nvidia N16V-GM/
Nvidia N16S-GT/AMD 15W 

 

Docking bays with its own VGA chip can be another option.

Hope this help answer your query. 

 

Regards

Hi katsas , 

 

Greetings.

 

The graphic chip are machine soldered on board. Other yoga 500 have it as an option during purchase.

 

 

The GPU chip came with the entire systemboard from the manufacturing depot , differently offered when set for sales as same reason why it would be more expensive than those without (comparing each machine/model). 

 

Replacing the entire motherboard that includes the chip is an expensive option thus not recommended.

 

Regards
