    HI, I got this imac 27" late 2012 and I got a broken imac 27" late 2013. Now my questen is can I move the grafikcard from the 2013 to the 2012?

    the 2012 grafik card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX
    the 2013 is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M

    Doesn't the iMac uses soldered GPUs, thus replacing them is impossible without a clean room and some of those soldering tools you use to solder iron asteroids together?

    Most Intell iMacs have a GPU that is on a removable video card. You may be able to switch the cards between a 2012 and 2013 iMac.
