I want to replace my current gpu (gtx1050m) without replacing motherboard with gtx 1070m.

is it possible? if so than can my current voltage support it?

The GPU surely isn't replaceable without soldering. 

Also this thin-and-light laptop barely supports this GPU (while relying on thermal downthrottling of clocks because it can't feed and cool both the CPU and the GPU at their full loads long-term). Look up iunlock's mod to see how cooling can be improved to run without throttling. 

It is possible to use a TB3-connected external GPU if also using an external display connected to it.

Is gpu soldered only for dell xps 15 series? or for all ultrabooks in general?
