    No one can guarantee that a next gen tech will work in current laptops, until they are released and tested. However there is a very good probability that it will be upgradeable to this next gen GPU, and maybe even the next after that.

    Biggest problem, brother Donald, isn't if they are upgradeable. It's if the ODM's decide to butcher the form factors or not like we saw with Pascal, to lock down the systems to their approved cards.
    1) Clevo changing pinouts making their own cards not work on other Clevo laptops
    2) MSI (and others) changing layouts making the heatsinks not fit, and there not being new heatsinks available (unless someone machines one).

    We already saw 980's upgradeable to 1060's even though MSI said it couldn't be done.
    Another problem is MSI locking down their systems with the embedded controller. System draw AC restrictions are based on what video card is installed. Even if another card physically fits, and the heatsink fits the GPU core and VRAM/Mosfets properly, if the Bios/EC isn't made to accept the new card, the user is going to have to hack the EC RAM registers to stop the laptop from throttling. Assuming MSI doesn't like that down even more.

    That being said, I would not recommend nor suggest anyone buy any MSI laptop with the idea that they can upgrade to new parts in the future. The best bet is to stick with Clevo, where our wizards actually work at doing mods and focus their efforts on getting upgrades working on their cards. And after that huge trade-in fiasco from MSI with their last gen "Double upgrade" path, I would not expect anything else from them besides their current systems working as advertised.

    I need to make the final correction. The MSI GT63 supports 1x M.2 PCIe NVMe OR SATA SSD.

    Going to correct brother @Donald@HIDevolution just a little bit :)
    The GT63 has one M.2 "Combo" slot which supports a M.2 PCIE NVME drive or SATA m.2 SSD drive, and a second 2'5" HDD slot which supports 2.5" HDD's or SATA drives.

    How's that? :)

    So on the MSI website, they list a UHD configuration. Every US retailer I've checked with is only offering the FHD option. I've never bought MSI before, but do they stratify their products by market? Is the UHD only palatable for people outside the US or is just wishful thinking on their website? Yeah I know 60Hz max not good for gaming etc.

    While MSI does stratify their markets by Region, the only reason you don't see it in the USA yet is because it won't become available until around late May. Chances are it won't be available anywhere else until then either.
