M2 MacBook Pro exposes “severe throttling” and reaches 108 degrees Celsius

One customer claims to have reached the ultimate limit of their M2 MacBook Pro, driving the temperature up to 108 degrees Celsius

Vadim Yuryev of Max Tech made the deeply concerning revelation this week on Twitter, writing

Temperatures touched 108°C when we exported 8K Canon RAW, which is higher than we’ve ever recorded on a Mac, let alone an Intel Mac.
