Hello

Ive recently been thinking that i could replace my GT 650M with a GTX 680m, but i couldn't find any info about what sockets they use

BTW i have this laptop http://www.novatech.co.uk/laptop/range/novatecheliten15... but with a i7 3610QM and 1tb HDD instead of what the stuff states.

Thanks in advanced.

I dont think you can put a new gpu into your laptop,unless you return the old one and buy a new laptop with the 680m...thats your only choice,its not like a desktop where you can just pop a new vid card in and away you go........most laptops arent upgradeable

Having the same chipset does not mean the same mobo. The 650m is soldered to the mobo so you can't replace it. And another mobo will not fit. You can see the models with the 680m are difference cases especially the fact that the fan is in a different location, meaning the mobo shape is different.

That will not make a difference in gaming performance.

Only if you are using all 8gb.

but for the sake of multitasking ill get it, it might also increase the Intel HD 4000 Memory......

What would the intergrated graphics have to do with anything,when you have a discrete GPU? :??:

He was talking about the edge connector for the graphics card to fit inside the laptop where the old card was swifty. I know what you were thinking though. the GPU is surface mount.

It does but optimus is screwy sometimes and won't switch it automatically. The increased hd 4000 vram won't make a difference since the gpu being so weak is probably the issue. More ram won't help multitasking if (again) you aren't using your full 8gb now.

your on the wrong website for help with laptops. While your laptop is probably not upgrade worthy, very many gaming laptops can be upgraded. check out notebookreview

Most gaming desktops have 16GB of ram, I'd just like to be "Part of the pack" if that makes sense
November 12, 2012 2:50:51 PM

And most people who get 16gb with a 650m laptop are idiots, welcome to the pack of idiots. Even desktops people say 8gb is plenty.

Most gaming desktops have 8gb ram. There is no reason for more in games. BF3 takes about the most of any game and that is only getting to 4gb. Windows doesn't need 4gb.

Lol, I just upgraded my graphics driver and I have a massive frame rate increase in BF3 on ultra...almost 60fps most of the time, I'll probably end up building my own gaming desktop when i have enough money :D
