    We aren't going back over a decade.

    RX 5700M = RX 5700, just last year.

    What changed in one generation? Nvidia again made it cool to obfuscate.

    1060 is 1060
    means nothing, this year it isnt 1 to 1.

    oh and his example holds up for 90 percent of the last 10 years

    You're correct, but technology is supposed to improve every year, not get worse.

    Since laptop GPUs reached performance parity with desktop GPUs in 2016, things should've stayed that way. There really isn't any good reason for the reintroduction of a performance gap between laptop and desktop GPUs.

    You could say the thinning of laptops is the reason, but gaming laptops didn't need to get thinner. A laptop engineered for performance doesn't need to be any thinner than 1.5 inches. That's thin enough.

    The second problem is that cooling systems for gaming laptops have been getting crappier because the laptops have been getting thinner. This is more of a lack of innovation than anything else rather than an actual limitation. Therefore I'd argue there isn't a valid reason for laptop and desktop GPUs to not be 1 to 1.

    While I agree tacitly with everything pointed out, that only continues that course if power efficiency stays in line, which was one of the first things noticed about this generation of hardware; it went out the window.

    As for the downward spiral, people pay for it, so it encourages the behavior sadly.

    There is a good reason for reintroduction of a performance gap between laptop and desktop GPUs. Bigger gap, the better. It's called Maximize the profits. If they offered same performance with laptop hardware vs what you find in desktops you could keep your laptop +5 years down the road. Who will lose $$$$ on this?

    Thinner laptops means less performance. See it this way... A great way to push you on the next latest and greatest castrated. Yooo lose and the OEM, Nvidia, Amd and Intel will win.
    Thinner and Lighter Laptops Have Screwed Us All

    If Pro users really were Apple’s target market, the company could redesign these laptops to use the older, thicker MacBook Pro form factor from 2015. With that available space, and improvements in processor design, it would be able to better cool the same hardware and squeeze out more performance—but it’ll never happen. Thicker laptops would mean admitting failure.

    Pro is just a name, the hardware was never pro grade. Same as the"amazing" new features on their phones every year that have usually been available on Android for years and don't seem all that amazing or new to people with functioning brains. The pro is just marketing and I have to give credit where it's due: It works, Apple isn't run by idiots.
