According to the latest tests, the CPU frequency was dropping due to overheating of the controller. Actually the problems started when passing through a module capacity of 125 watts. However, at lower values up to 100 W, the system began to work steadily.
Apple has already released a special software update that solves the overheating problem. And the solution really works. According to Dave Lee, who first pointed to the throttle 2018 MacBook Pro with a Core i9, after the update the laptop is running much better.
