Solved Is GPU upgradeable on the MSI GT683r Tags: Gtx Laptops MSI GPUs Last response: August 25, 2011 9:41 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share zabih107 August 21, 2011 7:27:14 PM Hello, Im going to be buying this laptop (MSI GT683R). here is the link: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=60955&vpn=9S... It is a great laptop as I read from reviews and comes with the GTX 560M. But I want to know if I will be able to upgrade the Gpu to something like GTX 580M in the future? Any body know? Also, the GTX 560m is MXM3.0 TypeB an also is the GTX580m, so would that mean anything in terms of compatribility? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why do you think 580m isnt compatible?

As for 580M,well you better ask MSI to be 100% sure but AFAIK,the only laptops that can use 580M are AW M17x/M18x and some Clevo models zabih107 August 22, 2011 4:12:37 PM I see..Alright I will be then asking MSI. thanks alot for the help Maziar. zabih107 August 22, 2011 4:13:30 PM Btw I am from Afghanistan and I kinda speak and mostly understand persian too.
