Notebook vs Desktop Input Lag
I know this is about notebooks but the topic is more apt in Hardware Clinic
I have never been able to explain it and was wondering if anyone knows the exact reason why there seems to be an input lag on a notebook, when compared to a desktop
I always felt that a notebook seems to always be slower than a desktop ( In general terms, even for productivity apps, when pressing keys on the keyboard ), to general UI navigation in Windows. Basically, in general, a notebook cannot compare to the speed of a desktop in Windows UI Navigation and general usage.
It feels to me, there is a 0.5ms input lag on notebooks as compared to desktops
This applies to regular HDD PATA SATA, SSD normal / NVME, whether it is a cheapo notebook or top of the line ROG notebook, whether notebook is connected to external screen or external keyboard / mouse.
It isn't a matter of defragging the HDD or resetting windows.
It is not a matter of processor / graphic card slower than desktop.
In general, a notebook is always slower than a desktop, even if a notebook is fresh with nothing installed
I've always wanted to satisfy my curiousity as to why this is so, so here i am asking:
Can anyone tell me what is the proper explanation for the above?
