That rendering result was based on one Youtube video review. A couple of other reviews got different results. Apple may have not put in an adequate cooling system in the 2018 i9, but don't jump the gun. Wait til the BIG unbiased reviews come out. Might get different results.

PS ALL laptops throttle at high temps. Question is can they be cooled enough to keep their base speed.

True but so far, I see several reviews from Youtube that 2017 performed better than 2018 due to thermal throttle. I saw at least 4 reviews with similar results. i9 is better but overheating issue prevent the full power of i9.

Sounds like a throttled i9 might be slower than a non-throttled i7? In other words, maybe the i7 versions act like the 2017s and have less thermal throttle.

Can you share Youtube links?

If you don't wanna watch in video, here are some tests with basically the same conclusions using Final Cut Pro exports, but in a post: https://9to5mac.com/2018/07/18/how-macbook-pro-throttles-with-final-cut-pro-x/
