Is it possible to upgrade a T580 Core i5-8350U with only UHD 620 graphics to UHD 620 + NVIDIA GeForce MX150?

Thank you!

Hello MAQuisut,


Unfortunately I don't think it's  possible to upgrade a T580 with an internal GPU ... My knowledge, is you cant do it on any laptop of any OEM... if you need more performance the only functional  option you've got is the external GPU on thunderbolt port. In theory you should be able do soldered a MX150 on your motherboard, but you will need to do the soldering by yourself and to find the heat pipes etc ... I don't know anybody who are crazy enough to do it especially for a minor performance upgrade, like UHD 620 to MX150. 


 The difference between UHD 620 and MX150, is not so important ... for gaming or 3d or video editing ... external GPU is the only valid option ...


I hope it helps ...
