I suppose notebooks should have a MXM module to be able to upgrade graphics chips, which ASUS doesn't. The chips are soldered directly to the board I guess. So, probably you won't be able to upgrade graphic cards in any of the latest ROG series.

AFAIK, MSI uses MXM module chips in some of their notebooks.

If you want to know more about MXM, I suggest that you read this wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_PCI_Express_Module
