What's the difference between mobile and desktop GPUS and why?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i know that laptop and desktop GPUS are different because well, you cant use a desktop GPU in a laptop (Excluding the external link thing)

 

so whats the actual difference? theres no VRAM diff, is it in the clocks, and if so, can you clock a laptop to the desktop standard?

The difference typically isn't in the GPU (the graphics chip), but rather in the entire construction. Think the power methods for example. Also the way it connects (PCIE vs. MXM).

As far as I know, the difference (nowadays) does not come from less CUDA cores and such, but rather the power situation.


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

ah alright. so thats why. but then is it possible to overclock the laptop ver to desktop ver standard, disregarding everything else?

 

say if (for example, not real cuz i cant rememebr off the top of my head) a laptop 2060 mobile has a base of 1500 mhz and the desktop has 1700.

 

does this mean (like if the absolute lowest clock for both are the ones mentioned above) that if i overclock the laptop to 1700, that makes it that the laptop is performing above standard because its overclocked, but the desktop is just at normal standard?

Probably it can't.

Usually the voltage control is turned off on laptops, meaning there is not much headroom in overclocking. Plus with GPU Boost 2.0, the videocard will try to overclock itself already too.
