    Its next to useless for 0.1sec when it throttles below 2GHz afterwards.

    Reduces micro-lag when reading email, haha. Chrome can never be smooth enough! Btw the 2019 i9 MacBook Pro can maintain base clock now because the VRM doesn't choke up anymore.

    To reduce 0.1s micro-lag people need to shell out 10K$ when their old MBP 5 yrs ago didn't have this problem. People should start to think about real hardware upgrades for the money paid.

    Coaxing and trapping buyers into exorbitantly priced upsell packages to improve margins for the retailer/manufacturer is as much as anything why soldering is growing at the expense of sockets. A tactic copied from the auto sales industry. Loss lead with the base model to get them in the door then chip away at their plan to buy it ("excellent choice sir, but...") and their reluctance to spend more by making them repeatedly say "no" to the upsell because the stats say on average 90% of people will have become a yes after asking 15 times

    Geez, imagine how much more performance it would pack with 1mm more of chassis height for cooling and like a proper heatsink

    I really wish it wasn’t the case. Seeing a product so close to being perfect but then it’s all dashed away cause 1mm...

    I kid you not, a 2015 MBP with an i7 6 core and Vega 20 and TB3 replacing TB2 would be more or less the perfect MacBook Pro

    And how do you mean he should be able to test it out? Lower the current and power limits? Or just let them be where they are put?
    See my reply above. If you don't want to try... You'll never know how it will pan out.

    You can't win if you don't play? You also can't lose if you don't play
