Hi guys..I know this may be silly to ask but is there any chance you can upgrade your graphics card on your laptop ? i have an acer predator helios 300 with gtx 1060  6GB but given the new games that are coming out i don't know how long will this graphics card survive. I usually like to play games at high resolutions, not medium , not ultra. I know that you can upgrade your RAM and HDD/SSD but is there any way on the acer predator laptops that the graphics card can be upgraded ? Thanks

    Good night RzV11 !

    It is not possible to upgrade processors or GPUs in the current laptop system.
    There is the eGPU procedure.
    But in addition to high cost / benefit, this procedure violates all warranties and if done in a wrong way can make your device unusable.

    In all current laptops that I know of, CPU and GPU are soldered onto the motherboard rendering them irreplaceable.
