Hi,

 

I just got a used Elitebook 840 3g as a present and wanted to use it for gaming. The Intel gpu (Intel HD Graphics 520) that was included doesn't help me alot and I was wondering if it would be possible to upgrade it.

Specs:

Intel Core i5-6300U (2,4 GHz)

8 Gt (1x8 Gt) DDR4 2133 MHz

Windows 10 Pro

Thanx alot in advance!

Hi. Welcome to the forum!

 

I wish I had better news for you, but no, the Intel® HD Graphics 520 is as good as it gets for your Elitebook.

 

The graphics in the HP EliteBook 840 G3 Notebook PC is not upgradeable.

 

The EliteBook 850 G3 would have been a better choice for graphics.
