hi,
does ASUS have some plans to release some laptops with intel desktop CPUs and maybe desktop Nvidia GPUs?

Isn't that what they're doing now? :<

I mean the G752's seem very desktop equivalent, especially with the 10 series GPU's and their CPU seems pretty similar HQ vs MQ.

You don't mean formfactor do you?

ASUS already offers lots of laptops with Intel CPUs and NVIDIA GPUs lol.

No laptops are built with desktop CPUs. Not by ASUS, not by anyone else.

Laptop motherboards aren't as standardized as desktop motherboards, they're somewhat consistent in terms of form-factor but the manufacturers have a lot of flexibility. They basically design the motherboard and daughterboards and other PCBs along with the chassis everything fits inside, they can add/remove ports and slots and features just like they do across different desktop motherboard models.

Intel mobile CPUs are sometimes soldered (permanently) in place on board, and sometimes use some variety of "socket". But either way they are not physically or electrically compatible with Intel desktop CPUs. They might have similar Intel model numbers and specs to their desktop counterparts but they're aren't at all interchangeable. They also tend to selected/binned with consideration towards power efficiencies.

Laptop GPUs are often MXM cards. They can be swapped or upgraded. But there are numerous little proprietary differences and issues between them and the motherboards they plug into. It's often easier to just leave them in place and treat them as "permanent" hardware.

You can buy some Clevo models, with desktop CPU:

This is correct. Both Sager and Clevo both offer laptops that have Intel "K" processors in them which are desktop CPU's. As far as Asus offering them, I havent seen any to date, even there very high end GX800 has a mobile "HK" variant.

Very few laptops use desktop parts because the power increases dramatically with those. The performance difference normally isnt significant enough to justify the extra power needed.
(ROG has simply become too expensive compared to the competition with same specs... 😞 )

u have highlighted also a very good point about mobile CPUs vs desktp CPUs.

i have read somewhere that in the future (already starting with its 8th genertion) intel cpus, desktop ones will have more cores that the mobile ones. so i think that the deskotp ones will have better performance. so maybe asus will reconsider the option of latpops with desktop CPUs.

Please do wish this on us these notebooks are big enough already with out putting in desktop component Go on over to the GX forum maybe if its going to happen it will happen with that series.

u mena, if i will write this question again there then some electronics/hardware engineer from asus will see my post and will answer?

not likely, if you have any chance it will be with the GX Series they are not going to do this with the G series do not wish such a contraption on us. https://rog.asus.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?218-GX-Series-Gaming-Notebooks

Thanx for the info. I haven't had a Clevo/Sager for a long, long time, lol, got sucked into all the fancy gaming laptop models everybody else makes.

It's hard to find specific info about the motherboards used in these machines. Chipset and processor (and sometimes manufacturer) are noted, but nothing else.
