    First of all hello everyone.
    I've been trying to find out if this mobile gpu (Radeon HD 8750M) throttling issue has ever been fixed on any of these laptops.
    Undervolting ? Driver or bios update ? Bigger power brick?

    The machines I am talking about:
    Elitebook 840 G1 (Haswell ULV)
    Probook 640 G1 (Haswell M)
    Review that talks about the issue.
    Throttling starts at 72c

    It keeps oscilating like crazy.But that seems somewhat justified because of that insane stress test setup.
    But while gaming:
    Was the Probook 640 G1 (Haswell M CPU) affected as well ?

    The Probook 470 G1 (Haswell M CPU) doesn't seem to be affected by throttling even under that crazy stress test. But it's a 17.3 incher.

    *I am on a budget and these two laptops are super cheap. Well suited for my needs. I would much prefer the cpu upgradeable Probook, though.
