    yes ladies and gents. Apple has indeed shoved the I9 on a 25W TDP cooling solution and the I9 cannot even stay at base clocks.

    Bravo Apple, you created the ultimate abomination of a notebook.

    All the other thin and lights seem like god tier notebooks compared to this garbage.

    On a scale of 0 to the i9 in the 2018 MBP, just how bad is the thermal throttling in the i9 Dell 9570? I had almost pulled the trigger on the i9 2018 MBP before then seeing that Apple was using a 25W TDP cooling solution for the i9. Should I switch to the i9-9570 now?

    Thumbrule.

    High end hardare + thin and light = RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.

    It's nothing but scam. The I9 will run at clockspeeds which are absolutely garbage in every thin and light. Even 8750H doesn't run at full speed on thin and lights. Either you go for bulky with performance or thin and light with poop performance, you can't have both.

    The best comproimise would be the Alienware with the I9, it's not that bulky and runs the CPU no problem.

    Wrong.

    Thin and lights can handle the I7 8750H in thin laptops. You dont have to buy GT62 like laptops to get full performance. Examples

    -GE63(normal wieght and thickness)
    -GM501
    -OMEN 2018
    -GP63


    And to a lesser degree:
    -Aero 15x
    -RB2018

    The alianware is not a "comproimise" its a 7.7Lb so called "laptop". A much better comproimise is the GE63.


    all these laptops can hold 3.9Ghz across most applications(read as: not P95 for some of them) with a simple undervolt. You dont have to buy a 3KG "laptop" to get great performance

    The I9 in the XPS will be a joke. But I would wait for reviews to test that.

    Based on the information provided by the both of you, I am befuddled as to the ability of the 15 2018 MBP to run the 2.2Ghz 8750H at its turbo clock speed of 4.1 Ghz.

    It can't run it at max turbo. It will throttle.

    They should really stop putting chips ultra-high end (for laptops, at least) into thin and lights form factor devices.

    Can you stop spreading BS and misleading people? Thank you very much.
    Neither the Omen, Asus nor the GE 63 can sustain their 3.9ghz on full load. People who purchase notebooks for their CPU power are interested in some kind of rendering. We do not talk about gaming which consumes much less power, but actual full on, rendering. No thin and light can keep the 8750H on full 3.9ghz to my knowledge.

    You clearly have no clue what you're talking about and should stop spreading nonsense.

    @stonesrubber1 No way on this planet will the MBP run the 8750H @ full turbo. Hell would rather freeze before that happens.

    Thin and lights can break the 1200 CB mark when undervolted.

    A GP/GE63 can run the I7 8750H at 68c in BF1 with full turbo(cooler boost). You're telling me it can't do 3.9Ghz while rendering ?

    And an aero 15X throttling to 3.5~3.7Ghz is a thousand times better than a 7.7 pound "laptop".

    Remember that the aero 15x is the one Dave2D is using as a comparison.


    So you think people who do rendering should go from 4.4Lb to 7.7lb to cut half a minute from the render time ? .

    @Danishblunt @ahmad hendeh, thank you for the information provided. Is there any thin and light laptop that is capable of handing its processor @ full turbo?
