Good day and welcome to the community.

 

As with most every laptop, the graphics subsystem is either integrated with the CPU package, or if it's an actual discrete GPU, soldered to the system board. In some cases a particular machine may have been offered with either integrated or discrete graphics. In that instance, a machine with integrated graphics might be upgraded via a system board swap.

 

Looking at pg2 of the L440 FRU Parts List: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/l440_fru_list_20140825.pdf

you'll see main two types of system boards. One is "Integrated Graphics 4600" and the other is "nVdia N14M-GE with 1GB", so you do have that option, but it could be costly.

 

You can refer to the hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/l440_l540_hmm_en_sp40a26004_03.pdf

to get an idea of the physical task.

 

Hope this helps to clarify.

Regards.

I have a L440 and with the i5. The fan is dead quite. I can be gaming and it doesn't even get loud or hot.
There is only a few screws to unscrew and then you can access the HDD, RAM, and WWAN.
If upgrading RAM, get one that runs at 1.35V.Upgrading to a SSD is a great choice and the 16GB M.2/NGFF is useless with an SSD and is basically worthless. I am wondering if it is compatible with a Ultrabay battery or ultrabay harddrive caddy.Definitely get WiFi AC. It is really good and future proof for the next 5 years.
I hope my comments helped. Let me know if you have any other question.
