Is a GPU or CPU Upgrade Possible if Pin Arrangements are the same?
I was wondering if it's possible to upgrade my GPU or CPU if I find a Graphics Chip with the same pin arragrment? I know the GPU and CPU are soldered to the Motherboard but it's still possible to desolder them. Such as these videos:
I saw on this forum post some one saying it could theoretically work and thus, I had this question:
"The problem with upgrading your graphics card is it is soldered to the motherboard. If you were super confident, found the exact same pin arrangement on another graphics card, and were able to desolder the old one and resolder the new one without breaking anything then it would theoretically work."
I know it'll be easier of I upgrade my Intel GPU or CPU to a newer and faster Intel GPU (Faster Intel i7) or CPU (Intel Iris as they're better) because they'll most likely have a similar Pin Arrangement. I would like to upgrade to a AMD Radeon but they'll most likely not have the same pin arrangement.
Btw, I live in Hong Kong where there are lots of Professional Soldering Machines/Equipment plus, my friend has Soldering Equipment as well.
Additionally, I will do anything it takes to make this successful! So if anything really difficult is needed to be done to make this a success. I will do it! So please don't hesitate to reply even if it's a difficult process to do.
Any replies would be highly appreciated!
Is this a good question?
