Would it be worth replacing GPU dies on MXM cards with desktop ones?

I found this TechInferno thread(https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/topic/10170-hardware-mod-980m-to-desktop-980-core-upgrade/) that talks about transplanting desktop GM204 980 dies onto 980M PCBs(OP did this because they damaged the chip and couldn't cheaply get a replacement card. they also got the monstrosity working in windows, with benchmarks) and I was wondering, would it be worth transplanting desktop GPU dies onto laptop PCBs that use the same sort of chip? You would need quite the beefy cooling solution to keep the chip cool, or just a dead chip to replace. I mean, the answer obviously is a big, fat, many-O'd NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, but still.
