I think most laptops end up having the graphics ROM be part of the
regular system flash, and there is no actual rom associated with the
PCI device that is the GPU itself.
The actual GPU ROM tends to be associated with plug-in cards, not
soldered-down chips in a laptop where they don't want extra flash
