Upgraded Laptops by forum users (work in progress)


this is a list of successful upgraded laptops

All these laptops have a MXM Gpu but Not all MXM cards are the same.
Type A card ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Type B card


MXM is supposed to make repairs and upgrades possible and easier.



MXM Gpu upgrade could require a new heatsink or a modified heatsink




here a list of MXM Gpus and also some card resellers

Well, for years I've been responding to "What graphics card can I upgrade my laptop to?" with "With very few exceptions, laptops cannot have graphics or CPU upgraded as they are soldered in place in a board that is highly customized for them." Thanks for a list of exceptions, as I haven't been able to provide the appropriate counterexamples.

I've pointed at least 5 people in the last couple of days at this.
They walk away sad, but informed.

Good job.

Hello.

I have a HP Zbook 17 G3 that doesnt have a discrete GPU. Will the laptop be able to run the Nvidia K3100m GPU?

its an older gen from the HP Zbook G2 series. the Quadro M series is to expensive and not available in my country. Has anyone tested the K series GPU in the HP Zbook G3 models??
