    Apparently there is a 2.2 build of FroYo floating around for the Droid X, and p3Droid over at MyDroidWorld has it! More news as it comes.

    Sounds like 2.1 with a 2.2 wrapper. I wonder if Motorola is having a problem integrating Blur into 2.2, so is going to tell everyone it's their version of 2.2 but it's really Android 2.1 underneath. Benchmarks will tell the difference.

    I think it's more like this: alot of the cool things that make Froyo so exciting were already included in the 2.1 release for the X. Going by the benchmark scores, it would seem to me that the X with it's current OS release is already using the new JIT, for example.

    In other words, I believe that the X's incarnation of 2.1 is alot closer to Froyo than any other device's 2.1 release.

    No way. My original Droid benchmarks as good or better than my X does (my Droid has 2.2 and is OCed to 1Ghz). If the X is running currently running the JIT compiler the benchmarks would BLOW my Droid away!! There really not even in the same class when it comes to CPU and GPU. X with JIT will probably score 1500's + all day on Quadrant, without an OC. With an OC, forget about it!! The things a frickn' beast!!

    Droid X is not 2.2.

    Well, we'll see when 2.2 comes out for it, won't we? A 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 is only capable of so much, even if the memory bandwidth is a bit better.

    I can't remember what number I got, but my DROID OCed to 1GHz scored higher than the Nexus One running 2.2

    Wow that's pretty impressive . I can't imagine where the x will be when we finally get 2.2.
