There’s no way to do that.

This series came in two different configurations:

Intergrated Graphics

Dedicated Graphics

The logic boards are physically different! You can't add the GPU chip. You can only swap out the logic board which would be expensive!


Thanks Dan - that answers my question

If it was the 2016 or newer model with Thunderbolt 3 ports, I would have advised you to research the possibility of using an eGPU. I don't believe this is available for the model you have.

There are a few eGPU systems which work via Thunderbolt-2. At this point it would be a used unit.
