Were RR Conways the first "Hot and High" powerplants?

I'm not really sure what you mean...they were the first turbofans, but that was much more about improving efficiency than getting hot/high performance. All jets suffer basically the same penalty in hot/high conditions...low-density high-temperature air limits how much fuel you can burn, limiting power.
