Here’s the market prices for some of the possible boards. Availability is very tight!

If you really need something now then I would recommend you buy a new system and then sell yours as you’ll get a better return Vs swapping out your logic board. It will be a good year before supplies become more available. Don’t forget you’ll lose your Apple warranty!

I have the same question, and while you recommend against doing it because it wouldn't make financial sense, the question remains. Can it be done? Are there any technical reasons for why this wouldn't be possible? Thanks.

@acooper306 - Yes it can be done! There is nothing technically that stops you from upgrading the logic board within the systems series (MacBookPro15,4).

Only availability and cost is the factor.
