20 years from now? I'd wager no, they vastly surpass the performance of any home pc that exists now. Think 20 years back, some absolute beast pc from 1997 is scrap now.
If brute force doesn't fix the problem, you're not using enough of it.

You'll see that happen in 5-10 years.

A high-end, as in $5000-9000 laptop certainly surpasses the vast majority of gaming desktops in use today, but "any PC", lol, no. A $4000 PC build will blow away a much more expensive laptop.

But yeah, 5-10 years.

A few examples:

In 2004, a high end desktop was a pentium 4 or athlon XP, 1 GB RAM, and 6800 GT.

In 2011, you could buy an A4 APU on sale with an A4 3300 dual core, 4 GB RAM, and HD 6480g.

In 2007, you could buy a core 2 duo or quad with 4 GB RAM and a 8800 GT.

Now you can buy an i3 with 6-8 GB RAM and HD 620 graphics.

Yeah, stuff that's high end now is budget laptop territory roughly 5-10 years later.

Looks like the Intel HD 620 in cheap laptops outperforms the 10 year old 8800M GTX considerably, at least in 3DMark Vantage. ~5000 vs ~3400 GPU score.

But not the 8800?
