    naw, i dont donate LGA laptops once i buy them because they are easily to maintain for a long lifetime. if you plan to buy a $500 and if its BGA then make sure you sell it and its something popular, or have someone to pass it down to. or an older LGA laptop would be cheap, like ivy/sandybridge era which is still plenty fast.

    For a gamer it's more the GPU/cooling limits of those older systems.

    While the article is related to Apple based products, some of the newer products housing the intel i9-8950HK BGA CPU with poor cooling systems are suffering from thermal throttling as well.

    I believe the article was written before Apple's announcement of a fix to the thermal mgmt system - http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2018/07...18-macbook-pro-cpu-throttling-issues-fix.html

    But still, this statement from the article holds true, "The problem, almost always, comes back to heat: there’s too much of it, and not enough space to get rid of it." Source- https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/9kmkve/thinner-and-lighter-laptops-have-screwed-us-all

    Nothing new or groundbreaking in this article, but it does a nice job summing up all we've discussed in this thread and throughout the forum.

    imho we all knew it was coming. the amount of capacity and size of heatsink radiator is like 1/3rd the size of our thicker laptop ontop of having crappy binned chips. it is obvious it can only run at 1/3rd of frequency or possibly less.

    whats funny is, sheeple consider that it is a software issue or intel issue, not apple's problem. LMAO

    Yes, that is funny. I thought so as well. MacBook and Razer laptop fanbois are similar in this regard. It's all about protecting their culture even when the product sucks.

    Those people need some lessons in physics to understand what a CPU is and why it produces heat...

    It certainly wouldn't hurt, but most of them are beyond redemption as this point. Once in a while someone escapes the mindset, but they are generally the exception.
    I am betting that you are being facetious. I know my surprised look is not on my face.

    I'm being serious, who, with some knowledge of computers, would have ever expected an iMac thingy to work with i9...?

    i9 is only a marketing name for charging more $$$. Still almost same Mobile chips as the rest of the Core i7 BGA family. The main difference is the new feature “Turbo Velocity Boost” vs the rest. They could in fact used i7 as for the previous gen unlocked Hk BGA chips. Wouldn’t do a damn difference!! But bigger numbers as you know tempting some people. How it performs doesn’t matter!!:bigconfused:
