Very interesting. Thanks.

Question: is it possible to replace a Early 2013 Logic Board with a Late 2013 Logic Board? To be precise replace a Logic Board with GT 650M with a GT 750M ?

They are both for model A1398, they looks similar for positions of ports but I was not able to find anything that is confirming that they can swapped.

I have this same question! Did you find anything?

The pictures throughout the Motherboard section show two different boards. One has a single chip heat sinked and the other has two chips heat sinked, There are other difference between the boards but that is a big one. Not sure which is correct for this model and year.
