Can I upgrade the NVIDIA Quadro 1000M graphics card on my W520?


Does anyone know if the graphics cards in the Lenovo W520 can be upgraded, for instance, from a NVIDIA Quadro 1000M to a Nivida Quadro 2000M?  


'Upgrading' in this instance is not possible.

This is because the graphics card is soldered to the motherboard. To change cards, the entire system board will have to be replaced.


The following link provides a guide to doing so, as well as more information pertaining to the W520.
