Do desktop CPUs throttle down if they get too hot?

or is this feature on in laptops, i notice that when converting a dvd to mp4 handbrake will use 100% of both cores, this soon sends my laptop too getting on to 100C it then drops the cpu from 2.83ghz down, [still working 100%] to a slower speed

and it will go up and down as temperature allows

is this a feature present on desktop cpus, or is there cooling powerful enough not to require it?

AMD's do (Cool'n'Quiet), Intels do when they're close to or actually overheating.
