There's a BIOS update for my Yoga 720-15IKB, dated 01.08.2017, version 4MCN23WW: http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/de/de/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-720-15ikb/downloads...
The changelog says:
1. Update MCU to M2A906E9_0000005D_0000005E. 2. Modify SAMSUNG MZVLB512HAJQ-000L2 CTLE value.
Can anybody tell me what that means? Would be much appreciated!

I ran into the issue (Lag and freezes) described here https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Lenovo-Yoga-710-15IKB-Latest-Bios-causes-l... after upgrading the BIOS, the only solution for me has been to downgrade.

The 24 version is now for downloads. I did, and everything seems to be fine. The fan noise annoying thou. It is coming on and off everything I open a new file. It was not like this with the 23 version of the BIOS update.

Easiest way would be to open Task Manager, go to the performance tab, perform some cpu heavy actions and see if the cpu speed goes above 2.8 GHz.
Alternatively, use a tool like ThrottleStop, which can also be used to re-enable turbo mode, should it still be disabled.

I just checked it. Ran statistical analysis and the CPU went up to 3.29Ghz. So, what now? Should I go to my BIOS settings and change this feature? I should I leave it alone? Sorry, I am not familiar with BIOS settings so I do want to mess up anything. The fan does not constantly run, but it sure comes on and off every time I open some new program. It is annoying, I do not understand why they brought this feature back. Maybe Lenovo has its own wiser reason.
