A more likely reason behind the CB score disparity may lie in the CPU you used. While the clock speeds were similar, the 7820HK in this notebook is rated at only a 45 W TDP, while the 7700K is rated at a 91 W TDP. The 7700K is a desktop class CPU that can dissipate heat much better and draw more power. While the 7820HK may be throttling, comparing a notebook-class 45 W CPU to a desktop-class 91 W CPU that likely has much better cooling and airflow than a notebook can muster is almost comparing apples to oranges. Maybe more like comparing a Fuji apple to a Granny Smith. The 7700K is going to beat the 7820HK, hands down. It mostly comes down to how much heat the CPU can manage, and how long it can hold its boost. The 7820HK can hit its overclocked boost at 4.4 GHz, but it likely hits it sporadically on various cores. The 7700K can likely hold that speed constant, especially given the immense overclocking headroom the 7700K has (some people can get it to 4.8-5.0 GHz). The 7820HK is really only rated to hit 3.9 GHz, so pushing it to 4.4 GHz is really stressing it; as such, it probably can't hold that as constant as the 7700K just from a power draw standpoint.That said, I wouldn't call this boost clock inconsistency thermal throttling. It's more just pushing the CPU past what it can manage in thermals, power draw, and actual attainable clockspeed.
