    I would like to know if there’s thermal throttling with 6-core 8750H. It seems xps 15 has serious problem out of box and need a lot of fine tuning. If P52 out of box runs cool without too much throttling then it would be awesome.

    Oh you bet OotB it will throttle and run hot, Lelnovo botched the paste in the factory on my P50 so badly it ran nearly 100C on simple tasks. Fixed under warranty though, so there's that.

    That’s my concern. I couldn’t find any official test and review on thermal throttling so far on internet. Decided to cancel the order.

    There are several user reports on /r/thinkpad now.

    So far only one has thermal throttle and will use warranty on it.
    All others seem to have no thermal throttle at all.
    How ever, there is power throttle at some point.
    This is for the i7-8850H + P3200.

    I'm crossing my fingers. I just put in an order for the 8850/P3200/4k. I'll ugprade the 8GB to 32, and the 500 7200 to an 850 Pro 512GB, and put in a 871b 512GB and an MX300 1TB in the M.2 slots. Still kicking myself for selling my P50...hopefully the extra $1000 I'm paying for the P3200, 2 cores, and half the RAM is worth it...

    I'm not impressed with my P50 to be honest, even after a repaste with AS5 it still regularly hits 100c.

    F this world, I don't want to buy a """"""gamer""""" laptop just to get proper thermals.

    Even those often do not have proper thermals out of the box. Sadly, we are being told be increasing numbers of "people" that real world "content creators" don't need to run CPU and GPU at 100% for long time, only gamers do that.

    Bunch of backpedaling and astroturfing to explain away inferior products, IMO.
