Idendifying ATI GPU on Laptop Motherboard for upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Hi Yall,

A big hello as I have not posted in quite a while.

 

I am having trouble identifying ATI GPUs on Laptop Motherbords. Some Laptops have Non-Integrated CPUs and GPUs that can be upgraded.

Some have integrated BGA (ball grid array) embedded GPUs that can't be upgraded.

 

In addition, I can't figure out how to identify what GPU a laptop has; because the ATI chip on the laptop motherboards use numbers like this one on a DDR3 motherboard for my HP ProBook 4710s...

The ATI chip ID:

 

ATI
0?52
MADE IN TAIWAN
PIM765.00
216-0728020

 

Specifically, I can't figure out what ATI Radeon Mobility series the last number "216-0728020" refers to. Like is it a 4xxx series or 5xxx series GPU.

 

I am upgrading my HP ProBook 4710s. I am upgrading it from a DDR2 motherboard: "AW997US" with an integrated (un-changeable) CPU:Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile processor T6570 - 2.1GHz (Penryn-MV, 800MHz front side bus, 2MB total Level-2 cache, Micro-FCPGA socket, 35W TDP, 45nm)...

 

Upgrading to a non-integrated DDR3 motherboard: "NZ688AA" which can use several different CPUs. I purchased the CPU: "Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile processor T9600 - 2.8GHz (Penryn-MV, 1066MHz front side bus, 6MB total Level-2 cache, Socket Micro-FCPGA, 35W TDP)".  I got the CPU from "Ambry.com".

 

The motherboard part number I need is:"583077-001" I have found quite  a few available in the $130-$150 price range, but only a couple list the GPUs. The GPUs that are listed with some of the 583077-001 motherboards are like the number above: 216-0728020

 

I have searched everywhere for several days on the web but can't figure it out.

 

The ATI chip looks similar to this:

Does anyone know what ATI Graphics line or series 216-0728020 refers to?

According to this link you're looking at a Radeon HD 4330M. 

 

I'm all for some pretty crazy modding, but are you sure you want to be going to the trouble? Core 2 Duo's just are not as fast as they were, and you're going to have trouble finding much that is playable on that 4330.

It could be a 4570?  My current HP ProBook 4710s  (HD4330) has the same M92 RV710 5nm "code" "model" and "fab"  according to this:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_graphics_processing_units#Mobility_Radeon_HD_4xxx_Series

 

And yes it's a pretty desperate attempt to get more life out of my 5 year old laptop. However, it has a backlit LED display with a Blu-ray rom multi & memory upgradeable to 8GB.  I don't Game, but I use some pretty CPU and memory intensive software. In the last month I have picked up the following compnents so far:

WD Black2 Dual Drive 2.5" 120 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD $220 LG Electronics BT20N Blu-Ray Burner Writer Optical Drive $70 Komputerbay 8GB (2x 4GB) DDR3 SODIMM (204 pin) 1333MHz PC3-10600 8 GB $70

Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile processor T9600 - 2.8GHz (Penryn-MV, 1066MHz front side bus, 6MB total Level-2 cache, Socket Micro-FCPGA, 35W TDP)  $120

 

So far that's $480. Add the one of the 583-077-001 motherboards I'm looking at and I'm at:   583077-001 Free Shipping Laptop motherboard for hp 4411S 583077-001 intel Non-Integrated PM fully tested 60 days warranty $132

 

So I'm at $630 total.

 

I would probably be best just to get a new laptop, but I have torn the 4710s apart before just to replace the HDD when I put in a Seagate Hybrid 500GB HDD. So, a lot of it is the personal challenge to see if I can do it and make it work.

It's also because I don't think I could find a new 17" Laptop with a blu-ray burner, 8GB memory, 120GB SSD & 1TB HDD, plus a decent processor for under twice the cost of doing the upgrade. It may be foolhardy in that the whole thing could fail right off or even just a few months downthe road, but I figured it would be fun to try. If it does fail I will at least have the ne WD Black2, 8GB DDR3 1333, and Blu-ray burner to put in a new Laptop.

Nah with that info it can be a HD 4330/4350/4550, probably the 4330 like crow posted. You can check if hp had other models with different gpu but meh, plus the 4330 is the same as the 4570 but lower clocks/bin

 

Is the 4720s mobo different? has ix series etc

My honest advice is to get on something like Craigslist and pick up something somebody just needs to get rid of for cheap.

Well, I went ahead and ordered that "583077-001" DDR# 1066 FSB Laptop Motherboard. I am pretty sure  now that it at least has ATI Radeon 4xxx series GPU with 512MB dedicated memory. Wish me luck!  I am going to tear down My Hp ProBook 4710s today. It has no back access panels, so I have to go in from the top.  I will let you all know if everything succeeds. I have also been looking at some new Lenovo, MSI, and other 17.3 Laptops to put the new components in just in case. :cheers:
