He confirms that RAR is very hard to write in GPU and that different
cards need completely different algorithms. Maybe I chose a bad first
experiment :)

For mobile devices like the one I tested, this is even more plausible. A
full size computer can easily have a kilo-watt power supply, and a
laptop PS is less than a tenth of that. Also, cooling in a laptop is not
comparable to a full size tower case...

But then why did they put a GPU in a laptop in the first place? Marketing?
