Can the graphics card of the 21,5" late 2012 iMac be upgraded?

Hello everybody!

Could anybody please say if it's possible to upgrade graphix card of the late 2012 21,5 inch iMac?

I am currently using the basic 650M, but it does not satisfy the requirements of videogames :)

I think I should meet some trouble with installing GPU's like 800-900-series due to the difference in "sort of" sockets.

If somebody could provide a link to some manual or guide, I would be really grateful.

Thank you for your thoughts!

Sorry no upgrade possible here.

Review the IFIXIT teardown: iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2544 Teardown. Checkout Step 22 there you can see the GPU is soldered to the mail logic board.

The iMac line while powerful is not a hardcore gaming system. You will need to upgrade to a more powerful system like the Apple Mac Pro.

It can be upgraded by using an external GPU using Thunderbolt port!

The older Thunderbolt units are getting hard to find today and you can't boomerang the signal back (limited bandwidth) to the internal display so you'll need to get an external display as well.
