My 2015 i7 MacBookPro started to thermal throttle after the update to Big Sur:
- in previous system, the Mac went up to 90°C degrees before slowing down. And it would not thermal throttle at all. The thermal throttling temperature seemed to be 98°C degrees.
- currently it thermal throttles at 70°C degrees: the CPU frequency slows down to 800 MHz and GPU down to 200 MHz (as indicated by Intel Power Gadget)
This is all after I installed "Macs Fan Control" and this is after I set it to "Full Blast" which means 6100 RPM. I have already changed the CPU thermal paste.
How can I change the "thermal throttling" temperature to a higher value?
