Upgrade a Laptop Graphics Card:

Upgrading the graphics card of your laptop can provide you with an enriching gaming experience. You can upgrade a laptop graphics card in a variety of ways ranging from buying a newly upgraded laptop to upgrading the graphics chip in your existing laptop.

I also fixed the issue of upgrading my laptop’s graphics card by using an external graphics card. Here is a quick guide that will take you through the multiple ways of adding the graphics card.

Buying a New Laptop Provides the Best Laptop Upgrade 

Ideally, the laptops are not designed to have any scope for graphics card upgrade as compared to what we see in the case of desktops. Most laptops have limited slots and spaces that hinder graphics card upgrades.

So, to address this concern, you can buy a new laptop with a better graphics processing unit.

Using an External Graphics Card 

If you really don’t wish to buy a new laptop to upgrade a laptop graphics card, you can resort to attaching a laptop graphics card in the external GPU enclosure to improve the overall performance of your laptop. You can do this when your laptop has a built-in thunderbolt port. Adding an external graphics card lets you access a broad spectrum of GPU options.

Please note that additional enclosures or slots include a permanent power supply requiring an external power to run. Along with this in order to maintain adequate temperatures, special cooling systems are do form part of the additional graphics card enclosures.

Please note that you can make any of the graphics cards work in case your laptop has multiple graphics cards like the integrated gaming processing unit (GPU) or the gaming CPU. You can do this by changing the laptop’s settings for the right card slot. Further, you can open Nvidia Control Panel to select the desired processor for video games
