    Even at 100C XPS is faster than MBPs?

    I always chuckle when I see blanket statements like those above, they are rarely helpful (or accurate)...

    Even after all of my modifications, my XPS would get spanked by something with good cooling. Not to mention something without the early throttling of the GPU and power limits on the CPU.

    The new MBP seems to better handle temps than those before, at least from the initial youtube videos I watched on it. Probably just a better undervolt applied via firmware though.

    We are not discussing the XPS versus a full blown gaming system. We are discussing the MBP vs XPS. The XPS is the faster out of the two regardless of what another computer can do against the XPS. That's not the argument.

    Right I get that, but your blanket statement that a MBP is slower than a throttling XPS is silly to me. They both have similar hardware and they both throttle. The last MBP throttled more than the XPS, but that may be rectified with the current ones. I'm certainly not going to brag about the XPS when I know it has numerous faults. For me the XPS is the perfect size, has great battery life, a great screen, and can charge with USB-C. Those are the only reasons I have an XPS vs something else...

    I'm bowing out now. I will not spinal down the rabbit hole. The freaking xps is faster than the mbp at similar tempts. No matter what those tempts are. Apples to apples. I'm not comparing a macbook at 20 to an xps at 100. Seriously.
