I sincerely doubt people are seeing ambient temperatures of 80°C
Even in the deep deserts.
15-45°C is a more likely range for ambient, unless the Pi is in some sort of oven or up against a heater.
You'd be surprised how hot it can get inside something like a regular vehicle such as a car, under the dash in summer. 80°C would not be impossible where I live. (Every summer, the it gets hot enough that the roads melt and turn into a river of molten asphalt)
That said, I've never managed to get a Pi0 to thermally throttle, ever. And I've tried things like covering it with a thick, insulating blanket, in an ambient close to 50°C while pushing the device to its limits.
It just won't throttle, can't get it hot enough.
