Just a curiosity about R2 15's GPU.

I'm not gonna change it right now, because 965M can still run everything at ultra settings at 720P or 1080P.
But i was wondering how much can you upgrade this laptop.
Is it possible to put a GTX 1060 in it?
And also it it possible to install the QHD touchscreen display from the high tier R2 15 on mine? Like, if i go to the local Dell Store, could they swap it?

Re: Just a curiosity about R2 15's GPU.

GPU is on the mainboard, not upgradable.

While you can change the display if you wish, Dell won't support or do that for you- you'd need to pay a shop to do the job (or do it yourself).

R1 M17X, for example, had a detachable GPU. So... In the R2 15 is soldered to the motherboard, right?
