The reason is simple. The size of it. In a desktop, you have plenty of room for the heat to dissipate. In a laptop, you do not have much room. Except for the side vents, the heat has nowhere to go, so it heats up.

The problem is probably the CPU, not the video card. Try cleaning out the vents on the side with canned air. It's probably covered with dust, further trapping the heat.

I'm betting you it is the video card. But that depends on your model.

Also depending on the model, the canned air may be useless

Could take the laptop apart and reapply thermal paste to the CPU as well.
