So I just got my 910 about a week ago and I believe I have gotten all of the kinks worked out with fan noise and whatnot, but I am trying to figure out why my benchmarks are coming in so low for such a powerful processor?? I saw a screenshot of a guy pulling in "3234" on his multi core rating, which seems to me like what it should be; however, as you can see in the image below, I am struggling to break a thousand. All of my drivers are updated, I am on the newest version of BIOS (36w), and my OS is updated with everything except the Creators Update (mainly because I am worried to, lol). Any help with figuring this out would be MUCH appreciated. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

1. Is your Yoga 910 connected to AC during benchmark? If you are running on battery, the system may not be able to get full performance.
2. Have you tried to change the Power Plan to High Performance?

For anyone who may be wondering the same thing...I have since figured out that CUID released an updated version of CPU-Z (which I was using), in which they changed all of their parameters and scoring. This is why I was showing different scores than the other guy I had previously mentioned. It has nothing to do with the new BIOS throttling the CPU, as was suggested by someone else. After running Geekbench and 3DMark, I quickly realized my PC was running at its full capacity, generating great benchmark scores while maintaining good temps and acceptable fan noise. VERY happy with this machine now that all of the bugs seem to be worked out! Now to tackle the Creator's Update...
