Is it possible to change the graphics card of my laptop?

Hi,

I have a HP Pavillion laptop with switchable graphics card. One of them is the Intel HD 4000 and the other one is the Radeon HD 8670M. 

I was wondering if there is any way i can upgrade my Radeon HD 8670M to a better graphics card because it can't really run games that well :/ I get okay-ish frames per second but still not good enough.

I have an

i7 - 3632 QM CPU at 2.2 Ghz
8 GB RAM

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you Smiley Happy

Hi,

 

Unfortunately the radeon gpu is integrated into the system board and is not an upgradeable component.
