Upgrade graphics card?

Product Name: HP Pavilion 15-au020wm
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey all,

 

Like many others, I cheated out on a graphics card (yes I can play things like guild wars 2, League of Legends, Hitman and others) but I was wondering if I could upgrade my graphics card for a HP pavilion 15-au-020wm

Re: Upgrade graphics card?

Hi:

 

There are no graphics cards that can be easily removed and upgraded with a different one.

 

The GPU is soldered and integrated onto the motherboard.

 

The only way to upgrade the graphics would be to replace the entire motherboard with one listed in the service manual that may have better graphics.

 

This would probably cost as much as buying a new notebook with better graphics.
