New Yoga 720 7700HQ/4K screen - CPU throttling -2.8Ghz Max- slow as 7300HQ!

Laptops and Netbooks - www.overclock.net
Hi all,

Just got top model of the new Lenovo Yoga 720 with Intel 7700HQ and 4K screen(GTX 1050 4GB).

I did quick test with Cinebench R15 and I am getting between 550~600 Max!

Tried Max performance + connecting to the AC adapter and run only when it cold, but It looks like Lenovo configured the 7700HQ to run only on 2.8GHZ @ all cores active instead of 3.4Ghz! :-(.

I feel really bad because is performing like I5 7300HQ that cost much less.

What do you think? it's just came out and no reviews to knew about it before buying, am I missing some thing? what should I do to make it run like real 7700HQ? don't want to use throttle stop and other 3rd party software.

*Turbo boost is active since I saw the CPU got over 3.4Ghz for few seconds sometimes(1~2 threads). '); }
