    Regarding CPUs between the x and d1

    Ok, ive been messing with overclocking a lot lately. Not by any means an expert, but most just out of curiousity.

    I have found some info that seems to conflict what a lot of people are saying about the D1. And the New DX, with the 1000mhz cpu in it now.

    Ok, lets look at the two device cpu's.

    Droid 1
    ARM Cortex A8
    **Arm specs on this are from 600mhz to frequencies greater than 1000mhz
    GPU - OpenGL ES-CM 1.1


    Droid x
    TI OMAP3630
    **TI specs are from 720mhz (doesnt specify greater than value)
    GPU - Open GL ES-CM 1.1


    The D1 is clocked at 550mhz...which would be underclocked out of the box. If anyone has read the Overclocking 101 thread you would be aware of this as Skull has mentioned it in that thread.

    The DX, however, is clocked at 1000mhz out of the box which would appear to be overclocked given the TI specs.

    Wonder why this is? And this would bring me to the assumption that overclocking the D1 is not really as bad as one would think (according to the ARM specs), and the GPU are the same on the D1 and DX...so.

    Anyway, this is just one of my ramblings lol...take it for what its worth.

    OpenGL is a software API, not a GPU.

    The Droid uses a TI OMAP 3430 CPU clocked at 600mhz (as of Froyo update) and a PowerVR SGX 530 GPU

    and for the record, they are SOCs (system on a chip) so the GPU, CPU and all the other miscellaneous processors are all on one chip. There is a fantastic diagram here: http://focus.ti.com/general/docs/wtb...ontentId=52606

    in set cpu mine says it is using the ARMv7 rev 3. Would set cpu be wrong then?

    Nope. The OMAP3xxx series are ARMv7 architecture processors. They're not the only ARMv7 processors. The Coretex-A8 is a core.

    Those are some teeny displays then...
