A user posting on reddit and in the MacRumors forums has given a detailed account of their findings and attempts to circumvent the throttling previously discovered on the new MacBook Pro 15″ models featuring the six-core i9 Intel CPUs.

This sets up the same conditions to allow throttling to occur once again.
