I purchased a 2014 MacBook Air with the stock i5 processor (suppose to be an Intel i5-4260U). Apple lists the processor speed as 1.4 GHz with a turbo of up to 2.7 GHz (same as Intel specs). However, I've never been able to get the processor clock to go above 2.4 GHz. I understand that the processor will only run at the max turbo frequency if temperatures allow for it (and in a notebook like the MacBook Air, it would likely start throttling pretty quickly). But even if I start a cpu intensive process (something like Handbrake that should use max turbo) straight out of an idle temp of under 40 °C, the processor only goes to 2.4 GHz. Anyway, just wondering if anybody else has experienced this. It's obviously not the end of the world (I know the MacBook Air isn't really designed for intensive CPU tasks) but it's a little obnoxious that the little extra "punch" isn't there when you need it.
