No, these GPUs are BGA, so they are soldered to the motherboard. You cannot upgrade it.

I thought this is a dedicated GPU isn't it?

I think "discrete" is the term you mean. It's not an on-die CPU solution, but it's still soldered onto the motherboard. Outside of the cheap-ish Celvo's, laptops have abandoned socketed CPU and GPUs. Not to mention GPUs have their own RAM anyways, so a socket wouldn't work anymore.

Well, I mean in theory you could, but it would require some pretty good equipment like a reflow oven, and a way to source the new gpu chip, as well as if it would even be compatible.

So possible yes, but in practice, not really.

What you would want is a laptop that uses an mxm graphics card.
