Lenovo ThinkPad P1: Sumptuous pro PC that gets a tad warm

Having to max out the fans for web pages? Uh oh. What would happen if you tried doing video encoding.

I was discussing performance with a Lenovo P40 user the other day. A game we play recently upgraded the engine to be properly multi-threaded.

Now, instead of the single core used for rendering being a bottleneck for performance, the entire CPU now heats up to the point it has to severely throttle itself, making performance worse than it was with the bottleneck...

I hope the cooling in this is better, but if nothing else, the strapline alone doesn't seem promising on that front
