Replacement different logic board

Hello!

Would like to know if I can replace my Macbook Pro 15" unibody early 2011 logic board with a Macbook Pro 15" unibody mid 2012 logic board.. Don't want to replace with same logic board since having enormous problems with GPU AMD Radeon. What kind of GPU is on logic board Macbook Pro 15" unibody mid 2012?

Urgent need of logic board! Thank you for your help!

Not as much of a piece of as the 2011, but a piece of nonetheless. If you want to avoid these problems dump this on eBay and buy a 15" retina with 820-3662 motherboard, no GPU, NO PROBLEMS!!!

If you do want to go about this terrible idea then yes you can spend $650 on an 820-3330, solder an older 2011 A1286 LVDS connector to the board, and then use it in your machine(only LVDS connector is different), but I'll say Itoldjaso when the GPU on that pile dies in a year just like the 2011 ones are dying now. This machine's resale value sits at $850-$900 when it works so to buy a board that is so close to the 3 year deathmark for these(where the GPU starts dying) is insanity, IMO.
