Laptop GPU upgrade

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion Gaming laptop 15 cx0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a laptop HP Pavillion gaming 15 cx0xxx. It has a gtx 1050 2GB, and I want to upgrade it. Since it has a 75-watt TDP, I could potentially put in a 1050 ti or something higher maybe? My GPU doesnt run higher than 75C usually, so the cooling might handle it. Any advice?

The graphics adapters in all HP consumer class notebooks such as yours that have been made in the last 10 years all have the GPU's as integral parts of the motherboard (soldered to it).


The GPU cannot be upgraded without a motherboard replacement with one listed in your notebook's service manual (chapter 3) that may come with better graphics.


If you could even find the upgraded motherboard part, I venture to guess that it would cost more than you originally paid for your notebook.
