    tdp at 60w is not extraordinary


    all skylake, kabylake laptops can adjust the tdp



    however heat issue seems to be a lottery, or cherry picked review units




    my experience with overheating on this p71 is that tdp will be overridden by EC if the cpu core temp is critically high

    Notebookcheck gets many review units from retailers, so those are normal retail models, not special picked review units.

    That sounds like a bad copy. I have a P70 with Xeon E3-1505M and under heavy CPU load it usually runs between 2.9-3.1 GHz (from /proc/cpuinfo). This isn't a particularly scientific test, but it does appear (on my system, at least) that the CPU is able to run above its rated frequency.
