Sorry I don't know the answers to your questions.
I am hoping that Windows 10, or some future windows updates will improve the software to better utiliise Intel's new Core M processors when they become more mainstream. I have heard that Windows 10 runs better, but I can't verify that because I'm currently running Windows 8.1.
In the meantime, I have found something today that you may find useful:
I found that Chrome youtube runs much smoother and cooler on my Lenovo Yoga 3 11 inch after installing the h264ify Chrome extension. This allows Chrome to use the h264 codec for youtube instead of the CPU hammering VP9 codec.

To speed up Yoga 3 Pro Core M-5Y70 slow CPU disable DPTF in Bios
Go to Bios and disable DPTF
(Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework is a "solution to help enable thin, quiet, and cool platform designs". But as we can see it works awful)
Your laptop will be hotter, but it will work like a normal PC, capable of playing video on YouTube in Chrome 1080p 60 fps (on high performance mode, which you can choose clicking on battery icon in tray)
Frequency on high load drops to 0.5 - 0.8 GHz, CPU usage stays on 20-70%. Laptop slows down extremely and become unusable. Can barely play any youtube video, extremly slow.
Frequency on high load stays on 1 - 2.6 GHz, CPU usage up to 100%. Laptop works as a normal PC, never slowing down. The bottom cover of the laptop becomes hot.
also i updated bios, not sure if it works on previous bios version.
