Replace (upgrade) graphics cards on laptops Acer — list of verified replacement (upgrade 26.04.2013)

First of all — welcome to the pages of my blog!

Since the purpose of creating its purely utilitarian, official part you can and finish. Let’s get to it.

Here, you can learn how you can replace the graphics card in the acer laptop.

Below is a list of probable and confirmed replacement cards standard MXM (in different variations) for Acer laptop.

This list was compiled based on my own experience replacement (service) and from other additional sources, and the main criterion was to be used to replace the video card was supposed to work, i.e. to prove its efficiency on a specific laptop. Strange criterion, you say? Probably, for many will be the surprising discovery that, despite the fact that the connector MXM all their their variants such as standardized, the graphics card seems to be suitable for all characteristics of the connector-it is not guaranteed. The reasons are many, the main manufacturer of the laptop sells you an integrated complete solution, not a designer; want a more powerful graphics card — buy a new laptop.

Servicemanual notebooks contain only information about the graphics card, installed by the manufacturer in the sales configuration, and informatsii about comestible, as well as on the necessary conditions for such compatibility, anywhere officially does not exist. In General, however, the card performed according to the standard, with the vbios from acer or «draw», work. Work the same and some other options-for example, some cards from MSI without additional modifications to the BIOS. We can assume that will not work the card with the bios from asus (if it does not take into account the fact that some from Asus in General executed in a «mirror», and not physically fit, and some do not contain vbios and he soldered on the motherboard.)

If the video card is listed, it means it was tested and worked, however, all information collected — has only Advisory in nature, and is not the truth in the last instance by changes in the make a list continuously, typically new additions. Much less «true» are the answers official Acer on such themes, as they are always unambiguous: the upgrade is not possible. From their side they are right, the laptop is not a constructor, price of notebook graphics on unit performance is significantly higher than that of desktop computers, because the result of such an upgrade is not always justified.

there are no Miracles. Important moment — If you integrated chipeta graphics card from Intel (intel x3100, intel 4500 and so on)-the upgrade is impossible! Exceptions to this rule, but it does not include laptop-based Core i processors with integrated video: in this case, the possible variations of the laptop with MXM slot,although this is uncommon.

For more convenient search your model — press ctrl F and enter the 4 digits of the model (for example, 5536).

the Last change in the list — 26.04.2013. new information is added regularly.

now,

notes:

* onboard chip soldered on the motherboard, upgrade is not possible. («that you’re lying,embedded video, you can upgradet! LAMER!» — in some cases, replacement of the GPU soldered on stronger, but these cases are very rare, expensive operation, almost meaningless, and is without warranties of any kind, so these cases do not see any point to consider.)

* the list in the model number may be the letter G, denoting «discrete video»may it not be is the main figures, only that matters. For example, 5920 5920g and — in fact, one and the same model. What is the difference between «discrete» «integrated» video card is described here.

*On laptops, where he wound up GeForce 9600m gt. will have to work and Quadro FX 770M, it is in fact the same card with a different vBios-ohms. However, messing around with a start, most likely,there will be more — I know of cases when the card would not work properly,despite all the tricks.

Before you upgrade the processor or replacing a video card upgrade BIOS to the latest (or last modified) version NECESSARILY because they add support for newer processors, other cards and iron. Error «MXM Structure Error » in some cases also treated the firmware is bios and the laptop, not the video card.

the Last change in the list of- 26.04.2013. new information is added regularly. Comparison of graphics cards performance in tests — here. note that the position in the test (the place) is not exactly says on the performance of the card, and the card, that the above may be slower than the one below; the tests are held there on a completely different laptops and different conditions, therefore, is only a starting point, not an accurate indication of how well 3d shows himself to one or the other card. There you can click on the name of the video card, and see more detailed information, including the performance in games by the number of frames.

Please, if you then copy the list to specify the link to this page or the blog — so it will be more statistics, more different kinds of software updates, the use of all; in addition, a complete list update is available only me here. What’s the point of copy myself constantly outdated information? You are fooling themselves and their clientinstall.

big thanks to those who provides additional information!

p.s. — the problem of compatibility of the video lies in clumsy written by programmers Acer bios-s laptop. Solution compatibility problems for some models found, I translated the original material here .

p.s.s — apparently, acer refused to use MXM in their laptops completely. Almost all models with Core i processors (first,second,third generation) do not have such a slot, and video on them — discrete, but soldered on the motherboard. Due to this — I’m not going to add new models with a PostScript «video soldered» in the list, it does not make sense, but old — updates will continue.
