they can go above 100K RPM- without exploding. The thing they have in common is that they operate under vacuum to minimize friction

You don't even need that. Most turbos routinely spin in excess of 100K RPM without needing a vacuum, and the Honda CX-500 had a turbo that spun at 200K RPM. Pretty insane, but it worked.
