I am using a Clevo P170em with an i7-3610qm which has HD4000 and a Radeon 7070m, running in Enduro.
Can anyone tell me if I change the GPU would I be able to get rid of Enduro and the HD4000 and its limitations(no triple screen and more than 60hz, although Power would be there^^)
or will I always be limited and forced to use the HD4000 in Enduro/Optimus due to the Architecture of my Laptop?

Laptop GPUs are not like desktops; there is no standardized port or size.
Thus 99% of the time there is no GPU upgrade for laptops, you are stuck with what you got.

I don't believe you can turn Enduro off, at least I haven't read of anyone doing it or have I been able to do it myself. Supposedly on a Clevo you don't get as much of a performance penalty with it as you do on a Alienware.

Replacement GPU's are not as easy to find, Ebay and are where I find the most hits.
