Explaination needed . Benchmark shows my laptop is being out preformed by my older dated PC.

Oct 9, 2020
Hello. I wasn't sure which category to put this in so I put it in both. I have a gaming laptop and a custom desktop. So I ran a few benchmarks on both to see which one performed better. The benchmarks were from 3D Mark and Novabench . From what I understand from the scores the desktop performed better . So I'm not understanding that since the laptop has higher specs . Could anyone on here explain what could be going on? Ive never used benchmarks before. I'm worried something might be wrong . Also the laptop has a tendency to get hot when gaming so if anyone knows of a fan control program that works for laptops I would appreciate the suggestion. The links to the benchmark scores will be under the specs .
Thanks in advance for any help .

maybe 3dmark is not recognizing your gpu....your new rig should easily beat the old one....according to your spec's......i dont put too much into benchmarks....play a game....check fps.....

a cool site where you can put in your spec's to check is game-debate.com
