    All very nice and a good review, but this really does show the state of affairs with Nvidia's naming. The worst disparity between the two 3700s in use is 50%. I think selling laptop GPUs intentionally using desktop branding / status is misleading in itself. I think having such majorly wide variation in performance between two identically named parts is an outrage and should be illegal. The CPUs have at least a couple of letters after the name to let you know immediately there's a difference and you can look that up. The depth of knowledge and detail you require to make a buying decision is unreasonable for the average consumer.

    I think it has gone to the point where this needs properly addressing by trading standards.

    It wouldn't even be that difficult for them to make things a lot clearer with a minor change, just include M and the wattage in the model number so that it was immediately clear there was a difference e.g. the one in this laptop would be a 3070m115.

    Obviously, this still wouldn't remove all confusion or be a perfect measure since the cooling systems in laptops can make a huge difference between models too, but it would simplify matters a bit if nvidia formalised the instructions to the oems.
