Because a laptop is a heck of a lot bigger than a portable unit like the Deck, Ally or Switch.  The S2 cannot have the same battery and cooling as a laptop.  It isn't realistic to expect a small form factor to have the same GPU as a giant laptop.  It is the reason the S2 won't be a portable series S, because it just isn't realistic given the form factor nature.  Which is fine.  It is a different target audience.  

For a small form factor, a 2050 isn't bad and above that, especially at $400, isn't feasible.  

I don't think the form factor matters that much when Nintendo is making 100 million of they will be getting part dirt cheap.

Form factor limits battery size which limits performance.  Form factor limits hear dissipation which limits performance.  

That is just basic computer building.  I built a form factor for my kids, it can't do a 4080 or 4090, it won't fit.  Plus it couldn't handle the heat.  

Form factor is absolutely a bottleneck.  Form factor and high end are opposing forces.  

And the S2 should be form factor not a giant monstrosity.
