Why can't my laptop play games as well as my desktop?
Hello, I purchased a laptop in Sep 2012, which has better specs then my desktop that I've had for a couple of years, but cant run games as smoothly (World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, most games in general). Does anyone have any insight why that might be?
It isn't completely accurate, but it should give you an idea of why your desktop performs better. Your mobile GTX 670 is 4 spots below the desktop GTX 480.
Plus your desktop's i7 is probably running at a much faster clock speed than the mobile one.
+1 to the above answers the desktop is just more powerful, the laptop should run those games OK though. Can you run them OK on lower settings than the desktop?

Thank you all very much for the replies!!! i didnt realize that the hardware in my laptop place so much lower then the hardware in my desktop. Thank you for the insight, now i wont be so mad at my laptop haha
Yeah, it is sort of unfortunate though. I'd be pissed off if my PC from 2010 beat my new, expensive one. At least it is portable though.
