Upgrade GPU on HP ENVY Notebook - 17-s013ca?

HP ENVY Notebook - 17-s013ca
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Is it possible to upgrade the 940m GPU on the HP ENVY 17 s013ca to a more powerful option such as the gtx 960? I understand that its "complicated' for laptops but any answer given would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

 

Firstly GTX 980 won't fit and won't work on your computer. Your machiine already has laptop version. And the bad news is for nearly all consumers laptops such as Envy, Pavilion .... you can't upgrade video card. You need to buy work station class machines.

 

Regards.

Thank you but I saw on previous posts that there is some compatible gpus that can be swapped out with the HP Envy 17, I am wondering if my specific model is capable of having its GPU swapped out.
