Your opinion does not matter because it these are well known fact. And your understanding that they are not really different that consumer cards shows that you have not proper understanding at all. They are in fact exactly same as the gaming and consumer Graphics cards. The difference is not in hardware but in the Firmware and the Drivers.
Unlike Consumer drivers, the workstation cards use different drivers and the companies like Nvidia and AMD work with the Software makers to make the Driver compatible for those software. Also, unlike gaming drivers which are mainly designed for faster calculation that accuracy, Quadro and Firepro card drivers are optimized for extreme precise calculation and that is necessary for the type of works they are designed to to.

Another thing, both nVidia and AMD, normally handicapped their consumer GPU to run at 1/2 or 1/3rd speed for floating point calculation which is a very much requirement for most professional design and number crunching applications whereas the Workstation cards run at the fullest speed. That's way a P2000, based on GTX 1050 Ti, can beat a GTX 1070 in lot of these workloads, even being a far inferior GPU in terms of hardware.
Read the below link which may clear some of your doubts.

O.o. I don't ever recall seeing a workstation GPU in a laptop. Either I'm ignorant, or there have been very few with these kind of GPU's. Probably not the latter.

The Akitio-Node Thunderbolt 3 enclosure will work with this; unfortunately it doesn't have a whole lot of room, you can fit a 2070 in it, but you have to keep cover off.

You were ignorant. Workstation Graphics in laptop is pretty common in all workstation laptops and all the companies have their own workstation laptops using either nVidia Quadro or Radeon FirePro GPUs. They are as old as the normal mobile GPU and the reason is that they use same hardware as the Gaming GPU but the firmware and the Workstation drivers are extremely optimized to work with professional and workstation based products. It does not posses any hardware challenge.

Yes, I am aware of them being as old as standard GPU's, I've just not seen any in laptops. Then again, I have no use for these types, so not really a shocker there, as I've never looked into them. Was just suprising, honestly. Despite the optimizations, wouldn't these kind still most likely suffer from thermal throttling during say.... a render?

I used p51 for two years or so - great machine for software development. Loved it. Including 4K screen. Miss it.

I use the P52 with 8850H and P3000 as a desktop replacement. This thing is a beast, but I don't carry it around often as it is big. But great workstation for video editing for me with tons of upgradability.

No, they don't. These are not ultra thin and light laptops like a XPS 15 or X1 Xtreme. These are a bit heavier and bulkier and use better cooling solution. Obviously, if you run software which will push both the CPU and GPU for elongated period, there will be thermal throttling but it will be way lower than those thin and light consumer Laptops.

The AC adapter on this is a little confusing. It says: "170W AC Adapter (2pin) - USB Type C". USB PD protocol tops out at 20V@5A, or 100W.
