Upgrade graphics card?

Product Name: hp 8570w
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a 8570W i7 16GB RAM and Quadro 2000M graphics.

 

Is there a whitelist of which graphics card compatible with the machine?


I have seen someone successfully upgrade to a GTX965M..

What cards are compatible with your computer?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Upgrade graphics card?

Hi,

 

Ths list from its specs:

 

GRAPHICS

  • AMD FirePro™ M4000 with 1 GB dedicated GDDR5 video memory Microsoft DirectX 11 (Shader Model 5.0) and OpenGL 4.1/4.1+capable
  • AMD Eyefinity Technology supports up to five independent displays* when using an HP Advanced Docking station (sold separately)
  • NVIDIA Quadro K1000M with 2 GB dedicated DDR3 video memory Microsoft DirectX 11 (Shader Model 5.0) and OpenGL 4.2 capable
  • NVIDIA Quadro K2000M with 2 GB dedicated DDR3 video memory Microsoft DirectX 11 (Shader Model 5.0) and OpenGL 4.2 capable

Other than those cards, you need BIOS as mentioned on the following discussions:

Re: Upgrade graphics card?

But if I would like to upgrade to a GTX950M or similar?

 

It is possible?
