thermal throttling

thermal throttling

Adjusting the clock speed of the CPU based on the amount of heat it is currently generating. Thermal throttling helps cool the chip when it gets too hot by lowering the speed. See CPU throttling.

And this, in turn, has a cascading effect on the overall CPU as thermal throttling temp would be hit much earlier.
Available in 400GB, 800GB and 1,600GB capacities, and clad in a custom-designed high-surface-area heat sink, the NX500 is engineered for speed and all-but eliminates performance thermal throttling thanks to temperatures up to 20[degrees]C lower than m.
In some cases, we even saw the lowest-end chips outperforming higher-clocked SKUs because of skin temperature thermal throttling or very tight TDP limits.
In addition, the improved cooling largely eliminates the graphics card's thermal throttling of performance, resulting in a card that not only runs quieter and cooler, but faster as well.
As mentioned before, cooled EGR reduces the effect of thermal throttling and typical increases in heat losses.
2 Shield FROZR, a design to protect against thermal throttling on M.
While that may sound like an overkill, it is actually a decent way to tackle the Snapdragon 810's thermal throttling woes.
It is quite likely that we might have to crank it down quite a bit to avoid triggering the card's thermal throttling mechanism.
The Adreno 320 does ok here but it's really no better than the 225, I suspect there is some thermal throttling happening on the device.
