From the article:

"However, when prolonged activity (i.e., sustained fast clock frequency) causes the processor’s temperature to become dangerously high for proper operation, the clock frequency is reduced so as to maintain processing speed at a reduced speed while preventing overheating".

This reminds me about this classic Tom's Hardware video about what happens to a CPU when the heat sink is removed.

Having Adobe supporting a specific platform isn't enough, they need to provide quality too. Just look at the 32 bit Linux flash player crashing and hogging CPU. And instead trying to actually try to get it perform fine, the devs just rant about their unability to make things work properly on Linux, blaming the APIs.
