    But you're not interested in hauling around a 2-foot-wide, 3-inch thick, 17-pound laptop if it can give you desktop performance/compatibility ... lol?

    It's ALL about energy!

    A cpu/gpu is going to dissipate a certain amount of energy (heat) while running under a given load. This is known as TDP or Total Dissipated Power. Big gaming rigs are big because they need to dissipate LOTS of heat, far more than a laptop could reasonable dissipate without fans that constantly sounded like a hurricane.

    The TDP of desktop processors is often double or more compared to mobile variants of the same chip. Yes they are a fair bit more powerful than their mobile brethren because of this. The portability requirement of a laptop means that they don't have the internal space for huge heatsinks and huge, high volume fans to remove all that heat. The buying public would not accept that.

    When companies go the other direction even identical chips don't perform as well. Take the Macbooks for instance. They are designed to be a slim fashion statement and for that reason they do not have the necessary breathing room to keep their CPU's from having to thermally throttle. The same CPU will perform better in one of these gaming laptops because they are capable of removing the heat far better than a MacBook. I think Apple has begun to notice the are losing power users because of this form over function approach.

    I would not expect to see any reasonable laptop company produce a machine with desktop chips in it. There's simply no room for the chips to breath. I wouldn't expect some weird niche laptop that did this to last very long either.

    thanks for answering. i like ur answer too. smb has also mentioned that the issue is around TDP.
    beside that i have also checked some reviews comparing clevo laptops (having desktop hardware) with rog laptops and i would like to say that asus rog laptops are a strong opponent given that was having almost the same or sometimes even better performance.
