So I was watching LTT's review of the Lenovo Flex 14 (also has 3500U), and they reported a ~100% improvement in single core performance after updating the BIOS.
Before SC: 69
After SC: 139
After MC: 643
I ran my own numbers, also on Cinebench R15.
Before SC: 133
Before MC: 422
After SC: 142 (+6%)
After MC: 652 (+52%)
That's a pretty good boost in performance for a BIOS update. If you have an AMD Thinkpad, you should really consider updating your BIOS.
