AoE Lan game makes laptop overheat

Game Version: Age of Empires Definitive Edition

I installed AoE DE on my laptop. It is a lenovo legion pro with an AMD ryzen 7 6800H and an RTX 3070.
As soon as the game started I noticed that the fans started reving up. The laptop became extremely hot. CPU temp 92+ C. GPU 75+. Without even playing the game. All this just from the start page. I used the cap at 30fps solution and it kind of worked on single player.
I installed another copy of the game on a different laptop (An ASUS laptop with an i7 6700HQ and a GTX 950M GPU bought in 2015 I think) and tried to play a multiplayer game on LAN.
The game seems to work ok on the old laptop (I havent checked the actual temperature) BUT on the Lenovo, the temperature steadily rises from the moment I run the game (even when I am on the starting page).
I have ticked the cap at 30fps option on both laptops. I am using the HWiNFO64 v.7.72 to monitor temps.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am trying to play this fantastic game with my 12 year old son and remember the good old days!
