    I bet the genius doesn't even know what Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading are...

    I don't see why any of those processors wouldn't have HyperThreading and TurboBoost.

    Why is it not being mentioned in the Apple specs or by any reviewers so far that I have read.
    Seems strange not to promote a feature?

    The benchmarks from Geekbench clearly prove hyper threading is enabled.

    Oh I agree that it's odd, but if you go on Intel's website and look up those processors, they all have HyperThreading and TurboBoost.

    The question is not whether these CPUs have HT and TurboBoost. We know they do. The question is whether Apple has disabled them or not.

    I agree, but where are the specific processors used being shown?

    This is Apple. They rarely refer to processors by their exact model numbers. Instead, you have to infer. Confirmation will come shortly with more comprehensive reviews and teardowns.

    I'd guess they have turbo active but it throttles with the heat generated under load?

    Can you provide a link to one of them, as I didn't find any via searching for "MacBook Air" in the Geekbench Result Browser?
