Our CPUs use the same technique, throttling whenever the temp gets too high, yet I don't see anyone claming that reduces performances. It's the same thing here!
What Microsoft does is actually good, explaining how that works and everything.
The throttling thing is a last resort, the only solution when everything else failed, and that's how it should be.
Seriously I never thought I'd ever be DEFENDING consoles... some of you guys really need to calm down on the whole console bashing thing.
Here is my problem. This should never be a problem. Never.
When I build a pc for gaming I use an open case, like the Haf X or the Cooler Master 690 II Advanced. All the cases created for gaming are created for maximum air flow. I never break more then 100F on any of my gaming pc's even on the hottest days. Why, because I don't want to have the pc go down from heat.
The xbox one does not seem to have the basic principles of cooling down.
Honestly? If I was to buy the thing, I would cut the plastic top off. I would insert a screen and frame and let the thing vent directly from the top. This 1x5 inch vent on the side thing is not going to work.
