    No. I disassembled a gl502vmk, and it too has the x2 JHL6240 controller.

    6 months old, new laptop, always plugged in.

    well, you'll probably buy a new laptop by the time the gtx1060 is insufficient to play games on High settings.

    An external gpu box + gpu is just an unwise purchase.
    It's super expensive.

    The main practical benefit right now is the displayport that is built-in, giving you an extra 4k monitor port.

    a gtx1070 wouldn't improve your gaming performance anyway.

    The thunderbolt port in the 702vm and 502vm is crippled, so you'd be wasting a ton of money on minimal performance gain.

    yeah, for some reason, Asus cut corners on the GL series thunderbolt.

    On the G501VW and UX501VW, the thunderbolt controller is 1575 40gbps version.
