Now I know it's not a true gaming laptop, but I didn't expect it to be getting this hot.
Laptops hate being under full load for extended periods of time and games ( especially high end 3D ) will make any laptop get all toasty and scream for mercy. Those whopping sized fans and heatsinks in desktop PC's are there for a bloomin good reason and laptops in their ever expanding quest to get thinner and thinner just generally are not made for gaming.

Laptop versions of PC are never as fast as Desktop PCs, because they contain 'mobile' versions of components.
You are right that most laptops have mobile / throttled on purpose components and also there are some high end gaming laptops that use full desktop components but unless you really really need one I just don't see the point due to their weight and extreme noise.
Mac mini ( 2018 / 2020 ), 3 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i5, 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, 1TB NVMe, eGPU Radeon Pro 580 8 GB, LG Ultragear 27GL83A-B 27 Inch
Commodore VIC-20, 1.1Mhz MOS 6502 CPU, 5KB RAM, VIC ( 6560 ) GPU

Until the next time...

Agreed, laptops are not the best medium for games, even my phone does a better job on 3d gaming then most laptops, ghegheghe.
