If we are only talking about the GPU, then the 680mx is stronger than the desktop 660. However, laptops tend to have weaker processors which can bottleneck GPUs to some extent.

The 680mx is going to be a bit stronger but has next to no overclocking headroom, it's roughly equivalent to a 660ti. The 660 will be a bit behind at stock but if it has a good cooler it should overclock and end up a bit faster.
