Heat and fan noise from the Retina MacBook Pro

Marco Arment:

“Since the Retina 15” MacBook Pro still uses high-wattage mobile CPUs and a high-powered discrete GPU, I had some concerns about heat and fan noise. I had hoped that it would use lower-wattage CPUs or drop the high-powered GPU to reduce heat and noise, but Apple didn’t do either, opting for maximum-performance components instead.”

He’s talking about the next generation MacBook Pro. Notice that last word…”Pro”…Why would you prefer Apple not use maximum-performance components just to save on fan noise?
