This setting is often referred to this way, but I don't believe this is correct. "Throttling" as implemented in Intel CPUs from the P4 on is controlled within the CPU itself.
The BIOS option CPU THRM-Throttling is explained in Intel motherboard/BIOS manuals thus:
"When the system enters Doze mode, the CPU clock runs only part of the
time. You may select the percent of time that the clock runs."
Folk relate the THRM designation to Thermal Throttling, but as a BIOS function, THRM is part of the ACPI Power Management options - Thermal Zone Management. The system behaviour in Doze and Suspend Modes are part of this.
