T60 2008 CM5 Graphics Card

2014-08-02, 17:30 PM

Hi. I have a ATI Raedon Mobility x1300 GC currently installed and I saw that it can have an ATI Mobility FireGL V5250. Is that the limit, or would I be able to go a bit further and put an ATI Mobility FireGL V5725 inside? Help would be very much appreciated.

Yes, V5250 is the top dog.

 

You would have to find a motherboard from a late T60p that has a V5250 and replace your current board with it. Once again, the card is soldered and can NOT be swapped on its own.

Welcome to the forum!

 

The graphic card is soldered to the motherboard, so swapping one equals a board replacement. The strongest GPU that these machines were shipped with - in the guise of late T60p models - was V5250.
