Why do laptop cpu's get bad benchmarks on userbenchmark.com ?

So i have a gaming notebook with a 1070 and an i7 6700hq, and its been great, the gpu is deserving of being called a gtx 1070 and that translates to the userbenchmark benchmark, however when it comes to the cpu, it gets very low scores compared to its desktop version, now i can only associate this to the low base and boost core clock frequencies, but when running cinebench the 6700hq gets about 680 points and my i5 6600 gets like 650 but in the userbenchmark website the i5 6600 is listed as better by 15%.

1. Because the desktop and laptop CPU's are not the same, even if they have the same "model number"

2. Because they don't take into account overclocked desktop cpu's.

3. Because userbenchmark.com is a badly flawed tool.

It's simply the nature of Cinebench, which is popular for benchmarking because it scales well with additional threads, which gives a boost to your 6700hq. You're essentially looking at the best-case scenario for the 6700hq, which is why it edges in front here.
