Quadro® RTX™ 5000 for laptop is not sold separately?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I thinking on buying a new workstation laptop with the thought in mind to upgrade it in the future to a Quadro® RTX™ 5000 GPU but from what I've managed to see online these GPUs series are not sold separately. Am I right or just don't know where to look?

laptop graphics cards are not known to be upgradeable. The MXM form factor, the closest thing to a standard, is all but completely dead, and companies like Alienware have a proprietary standard that has limited options, if there are options at all.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

You are right, most graphics cards for laptops need to be custom made for each brand/model and the same with cooling for the graphic card.

Not much good in swapping a medium power hungry card for a high power one if the laptop cant handle the additional power draw or additional heat.

That's really annoying. so only SSD and RAM are upgradable?

For the most part, that's basically it, unless you get extremely creative.
