Laptop Intel CPU AMD Graphics

Recommended Posts

Ok everybody I have a simple question I was thinking of upgrading my laptop and I saw that it could support up to an I7 I have an I3 I'm using HP Pavillion G7 2240-us I talked to hp and they confirmed it is upgradeable but ridiculously expensive. It uses a g2 socket I have my cpu and I'm using the rip jaws 8gb dual channel 1600 MHz memory. Now it also says that my computer can come with radeon hd 7670m discrete graphics. Know does that already have to be on the motherboard or can you get the chip and install it?  

 

I looked into getting the motherboard but everyone of the g7 series that an intel cpu and amd graphics they no longer carry they sent me a list of parts vendors that might carry it but before I but it I was wondering if there was a compatibility issue or anything of a similar nature that caused it to no longer be carried?

The graphics are likely part of the whole board...so you'd have to swap that all out to upgrade the graphics. EIther upgrade isn't worth it for the money you'd be spending.

Like Ivy said, the 7670M as far as I know is soldered onto the motherboard, as are most dedicated cards that aren't top of the line for laptops. You'd only find mxm cards in higher end clevos/alienwares etc.
