btw one thing to realize is that many of the thermal limits in mobile devices don't have the CPU cores
as the primary reason.
Other components on the board (screens, modems etc) as well as the GPU likely impact
this at least as much as actual cpu usage does.
It's usually just that the CPU is the easiest to control down,
so that tends to be the first one impacted.
