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.

The ROG Phone II is also engineered to prevent thermal throttling. There's a three-layer cooling system which includes a vapour cooling chamber (much larger than before), carbon cooling pads below the processor and heat dissipation vents on the body.
However, many MacBook fans noted that the new Apple laptop's processing power makes it more susceptible thermal throttling issues like its predecessor.
When a phone's internals become too hot, the CPU slows down -- a problem known as thermal throttling -- and leads to a loss in performance.
Transcend's 3D TLC NAND SSDs feature cutting-edge technologies for performance and protection, including built-in SLC caching for enhanced write performance and product lifespan, LDPC ECC algorithm to ensure data integrity, and dynamic thermal throttling mechanism to prevent overheating while maintaining high performance.
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.2 PCI Express NVMe SSDs.
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.
Volumetric efficiency reduces due to reduced air availability caused by thermal throttling. Reductions in NOx emissions are remarkable at all loads and a reduction of 64% at 10% EGR and 94% at 50% was recorded for Hot EGR case.
As mentioned before, cooled EGR reduces the effect of thermal throttling and typical increases in heat losses.
We fully expect the i9 variant of the XPS 15 to experience thermal throttling just like last year, but it remains to be seen how far it would go before dropping its performance.
During an intense hour-long video editing session, there were a few moments where the drive's performance dropped due to thermal throttling. However, this was only a minor inconvenience.
This allows the Poco F1 to get around thermal throttling. We are currently testing whether the cooling mechanism actually leads to longer peak performance.
