Can I upgrade my logic board with a MacBook Pro A1398 15" Early 2013

My dedicated GPU was failing a few years ago. The Apple Genius Bar repaired it back then, I think my GPU is going again!

I’ve found a MacBook Pro A1398 15" Early 2013 Core i7-3740QM 2.7GHz 8GB logic board which I’m capable and equipped to replace IF it will work!

Will it work?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@arbaman is correct the older Unibody systems are very different than the newer retina series.

The best you can do is look for a mid 2012 logic board which had a better dedicated GPU chip MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2012 Logic Board Replacement
