Help with mobile GPU overclock and upgrade

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm the owner of an Asus k53tk laptop, which comes with an A6-3420m APU, 4 gigs of 1333Mhz DDRam, a 750gb HDD and a AMD HD 7670m 1 GB Dedicated GPU. Although I'm satisfied with my current GPU, I am planning on either overclocking it or upgrading.

I have two question, the first of being if there is any special software similar to let's say K10Stat that will let me modify both the clock frequency with the voltage of my GPU ?

Second question is how can I tell if I can upgrade my GPU, and what model could I go for ?

If anyone has ever done or read or just knows any information regarding my two questions, I'll be more than thankful for any information.

Thank you,

JrT.

Just shedding some light ....

Certain laptops come with serviceable/replaceable video card modules, the k53tk however, does not.
Meaning the video card is soldered on to the motherboard, and thus, non-upgradable.

Well thanks,

You've just killed my enthusiasm. I have an older Acer laptop, it had a gpu card that could be entirely removed and upgraded if needed. I know because I've dismantled that old thing about three or four times.

However, my newer Asus lappie, I've never encountered the need of opening it, so I couldn't of known about the GPU being soldered onto the motherboard. I'm second guessing it's the same story with the CPU/APU, right? It's gotta be soldered as well.

Damn this consumer-oriented market, I know I'm running off-topic, but it seems like they just make hardware that's designed to fail and become easily defeated by ever demanding software. Insead of just upgrading the components, they force you into buying a new laptop every year, unless you're willing to spend around 2000 to 3000 US dollars on a so-called gaming laptop, that's also gonna become obsolete in about one, one and a half years.

Anyway, I guess this thread can be now closed.

Thank you so much for your answer,

JrT.
