Thank the ever-loving FSM. Touchscreens are disgusting, which could probably be overlooked if they didn't create so much cognitive dissonance, decreased productivity, and massive ergonomics problems at the same time.

That's kinda silly to think that firmware will fix a darn thing. Seriously, my laptop has issues cooling the 8750H and this is a full on gaming machine that's got twice the thickness of that Macbook. You'd have to be absurdly ridiculous to think you could cool that thing in anything but a high performance chassis. There are full videos showing off how poorly all of Apple's products handle their CPUs under any sustained load, even after doing full liquid metal repastes they still throttle to no end. So yeah, they're putting a 55w TDP CPU in a chassis that can barely handle a 25w chip. Good job.

Aren't they the one complaining of a 40% hit in performance?

Intel is running out of fingers to cover the holes.

If you actually enable the migration, though it isn't a huge deal atm for consumer PCs.

Are there any details what Intel cpu is used? If its Whiskey Lake then it is shielded.

Engineering did not get the memo about this announcement. They were complaining about Intel just a few days ago.

I have no idea which Intel CPU was used, could be any Intel CPUs after 2011. I am just going by their latest patch info.
