This report indicates your processor is overheating--perhaps due to clogged air paths or even a defective fan.
Yes Intel processors throttle back heavily in such situations.
Please post your terminal results of:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
This will give more information to go with

Thanks for providing that info.
As you said in the beginning--You have a good notebook. I agree, and being so new I doubt the airflow
could be so severely obstructed in this short period of time. But a fan failure is still possible (though unlikely).
Others may offer advice after seeing your inxi report.
Perhaps some process is running out of control, even your graphics, causing excessive processor activity.
In this situation I would boot using the installation .iso usb/dvd into the live desktop mode and check the operation there.

Possibly where the notebook is sitting, like on a bed or something external blocking air ports.

Very new hardware. Try the latest kernel of the 4.18 series, by means of the reliable canonical-kernel-team PPA:

Yes, that much was already clear. Well, try the 4.18.x. As I advised in my previous message. :wink:

I cleaned the fan and the air path and now everything is ok.
Thanks for the help.
