It's my understanding that the replacement boards Lenovo uses are refurbished boards that have the GPU replaced.
This chip definitely cannot not be replaced even by a skilled technician without expensive equipment. It requires a remanufacturing facility, but I believe they can be replaced.
Obviously I've never tried it, and I could be wrong.
