    Laptops like the A717-72G can't have their cpu or cpu graphics updated as they are soldered onto the motherboard.

    The only thing that you can upgrade to improve performance is to upgrade to a faster

    1. M.2 SSD and upgrade to a PCIe3x4 type M.2 (2280) Single-Sided SSD • PCIe NVMe Gen 3 • 3,500 MB/s Read, 3,000 MB/s Write like the WD-750 Black or the Samsung 970 Plus NVMe drives that will be allot faster that your oem M.2 SSD drive is.
    2. Also add and upgrade to a RAM KIT at these specs only, don’t upgrade to overclocked or XMP RAM and only upgrade to this spec DDR4-3200Mhz RAM, as it the fastest RAM, that will also make your laptop operate in Dual Channel Mode with the Crucial 32GB Kit (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 SODIMM - DDR4-3200 • CL=22 • NON-ECC • SODIMM • 260-pin • 1.2V • 2Rx8/1Rx8 • PC4-25600.

    Doing all the above and having the correct Windows Updates, Intel and Nvidia software updates will make your laptop operate at its peak and best performance. Good luck and hope this helps you out.
