    My solution to that is to play most PC games with a gamepad.  For some games, it means that I just can't play the game at all.  But many games work fine by using the gamepad software to map gamepad buttons to keyboards keys.
    Guess I am way too old, using a controller too play games is way to unnatural,  and I can't type anything.  

    My son laughs when he sees me try his PS4, says I look as if I am holding a snake.

    Yeah, I agree with most of you the vendors created this problem not Intel.  But my AMD based laptop runs fine and does not throttle.  Eve runs great on it.

    Part of Apple's issues were caused by a bug that caused excessive throttling. Apple has now released a bugfix, and the laptop works better:

    I'm not holding my breath on anything significant. I expect -- the laptop will probably beat the 2017 model now in terms of overall speed, but under duration it won't beat it by much if at all, it will still throttle significantly under load.

    A lot depends on the game.  Some games are easy to do with a gamepad, and some are basically unplayable.  The main factors are how much precise, analog input the game intrinsically needs and how versatile the game control configuration is.

    How did you play games when you were younger?  Or did you not play games when you were younger?  30-40 years ago, PC gaming was much more limited, and consoles with various sorts of controllers dominated.  What did you do back then?
