Looks like there are thermal events happening that is causing CPU limits

there a thermal interface in /proc/acpi that can give you the current

There are thermal thingies in /proc, and I'm watching the temperature
value from there (62C --> 65C), and the trip_points value is 95C..

Think it's thermal?

Yup, thermal.
Trips shortly after I see 66C in /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THM/temperature

If I stop number crunching for a bit, the temperature drops down to the
low 50's, and the max freq then gets set back to 1100.

Mmmm.. is there a way to control the high/low thermostat values there?
