Hello!

Can anyone please tell me which part is the GPU of this board:

Is it the one that is right next to CPU socket or the one below with the metal casing covering it?

I need to change the board of my Acer laptop, but i need one with 740M GeForce. So is the 740m integrated onto the board, or is it changeable? And can anyone please help me find a board with Nvidia 740M (or better)? Ebay and Alibaba ads don't specify any of having this GPU.

Thanks!

It's the one on the right. Those black rectangles are the vram around it. The other is the chipset. Laptop mobos are not interchangeable from different models so if the option was never offered with your model, then there is nothing you can do to add one.

Hello, thanks for clarifying. My laptop has 740M integrated GPU on the board, but i can't find anywhere the mobo with this particular GPU. Places sell with weaker GPU,s like 730m or 630m. And most don't even specify the GPU model.
