Custom Build AMD Gaming Laptop (with the power and upgradable ability of a desktop)

I have been wanting to get a new computer for a while now, I need the power that you could get from a desktop, but I still need portability. I have already upgraded the RAM and HDD. I replaced the 1tb spinning disk, with a V-NAND SSD

(Samsung 850 Evo) I could upgrade the fan and heat sync(Includes Heatpipe), but I don't know of any that will work with my current computer. 

Mobile workstation Specs

  • Socketed CPU (preferably 2P EPYC)
  • Upgradable GPU
  • MultyGPU support
  • DDR4SODIMM ECC Memory
  • 4k IPS nano edge display with full freesync support. 
  • 4x M.2 SSD 
  • 1x SATA(latest gen) V-NAND SSD
  • 1x WD Ultrastar 14TB Storage drive. 
  • 7 or more internal fans (Asus Self Cleaning design)
  • Vapor Chamber cooling, and lots of heat pipes/heat syncs
  • 3d printed case, with metal frame, and detachable carry handle
  • Built-in mouse pad
  • 6-Cell Li-ion Battery
  • Full Per-Key RGB backlit Keyboard
  • The touchpad is a Touchscreen that shows hardware stats. 
  • Full Keyboard
  • Docking Station support.

If you think this is possible what would you change, or keep the same

The ECC ram limits my processer options to EPYC and Opteron.

COMPLETELY unrealistic

you can now have a Deskio Intel i7 9700k (95W) performance in a Laptop with AMD Ryzen 7 4800H (45W) - maybe paired with an AMD RX5700m (120W) 4-8GB - you add 16-32GB DDR4-3000CL16. // 180W combined would be max for a 15" Laptop - 17" maybe 200W // My Acer Nitro 5 has ~100W and can keep that pretty cool (~60°C under load with max fans with a 28°C ambient)
it is TOTAL UNREALISTIC to have a 250W CPU in a Laptop!
My Acer Nitro 5 (Ryzen 5 2500U (30W) + RX560X 4G (60W) + 16GB DDR4-2400CL16 + 1x m.2 SSD + 1x 2.5" SSD) has 1 m.2 slot AND 1x 2.5" sata slot - max i have seen so far are 2x m.2 or 2x 2.5"


ECC Ram makes no sense in a laptop

Touchscreen is possible - but i prefer matte displays. My Acer Nitro 5 has a 60hz IPS Panel with deactivated FreeSync - i was able to OC it to 100hz + FreeSync (35-99)

Full-RGB Keyboard is possible - depends on Laptop OEM - my Acer Nitro 5 has only red LED keyboard

so realistic is this:
15" or 17"
Ryzen 7 4800H (45W) (performance like a desktop i7 9700k)
RX5700m (120W) (~performance of a Desktop GTX 2070 or Vega 64)
32GB DDR4-3000CL16
1x m.2 PCI-e 4.0
1x 2.5" SATA
1440p 144hz IPS with FreeSync (simply because a 4k 144hz IPS with FreeSync would up the price by 400$)

and now we still talk about 1000-1300$ minimum

PC: R7 2700X @4.1GHz + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

I know that machine is unrealistic, I didn't ask if you can build it with off the shelf components, did I? It would be more of a Luggable at that point tho.

Looking at it now, Rackmount would be better... also for a laptop, would it be possible for an OEM to build a Workstation using EPYC embedded, and a mobile Radeon Pro GPU. 

You are right, that would never fit in a Laptop and still be portable.

btw, Nice machine you proposed, I would love to see something like that sometime. (I need a lot of stuff before I ever build that, but it looks promising)
