    ROG G21CN GPU Upgrade?

    I plan to buy Asus ROG G21CN, read it in this article that the GPU is upgradeable to RTX 2080 : https://rog.asus.com/articles/gaming...g-performance/
    But What I find out is This G21CN only have 1x 6+2 pci Power connector, that means its impossible to upgrade to RTX 2080 that needs 1x 6+2 and 1x6 pin.
    Or is there any SKU variant of G21CN that comes with 2x6+2 pin power connector? Anyone knows?

    I only bought this PC because of the possibility of upgrading it. It cost over 1000 dollars and I think for this amount of money you should be able to at least upgrade the GPU to an RTX 2080. The previous version, the G20, has more upgrade capabilities. So, give us an answer

    G21cn wont be able to use RTX 2080, the max upgrade is RTX 2070, most of RTX 2070 requires 1x(6+2) and 1x6pin, but you can find some RTX 2070 with single 8(6+2) pin power.
