    I emailed a buddy that has a lot of knowledge with computer hardware & Cell phone hardware

    He said the droid X's 1Ghz Snapdragon processor has capabilities of being over clocked to 2.5 ghz

    But that's if the android dev's can get past that thorn of a locked bootloader

    but as a recent development that :

    An M1 Abrams Tank can go 90 MPH (No BS - no turret on a test track) But that does not make it a good idea ;)

    It does if your in the buisness of dodging bullets and running stuff over.

    Keep up with the 2.25 ghz talk, fictional or not, I like your story...

    LOL... Safety concerns in war, is that a oxymoron.. lol.. Im down with it tho as I was a Missile Tech aboard a FFG.
    Its just nice seeing theres hope for the X beyond stock and some mildly tweaked roms.. JIT would be awesome and I sure would like to see atleast 1.75ghz.
    Im saying its a awesome phone and sure would like to see its possibilities unlocked as the D1 was. I still have 2 running around the house and its still a awesome phone, once hacked & OC'd of course.. LOL>.:motdroidvert:=dancedroid

    Wow... Moto said no to Snapdragon a long time ago. Unfortunately the TI OMAP 3630 in the Droid X will only be mildly overclockable. The fact that it is running at 1 Ghz from the factory and the previous generation OMAP 3430 in the Droid being OC'd to about 1.3 Ghz max pretty much shows the upper limits of this particular ARM core. The upcoming OMAP 44xx and just announced Eagle ARM-15 core chips will not only be multi-core but should clock in upwards of 2.5 - 3 Ghz. We won't be seeing any of that magic until late 2012 early 2013 though.

    The snapdragons use the same cpu core as the current gen of omap chips, as well as samsung's hummingbird and apple's a4... Cortex-A8. They are all hitting a ceiling at around 1.2~1.3 Ghz. And it's good moto passed on it, the adreno gpus that qualcomm uses may, or may not, actually be faster, but their android drivers are dog balls.

    The Adreno 200 in the current gen of Snapdragon is a fairly weak GPU when compared to the PowerVR SGX 530 in the OMAP 3430 nevermind the PowerVR SGX 535 and 540. Now what will be very interesting is how the Adreno 220 will stack up against the PowerVR SGX 5xx and/or the Mali GPU which are supposed to make their way into the next generation of multi-core SoC's. The Tegra 2 250 already has a Geforce GPU in it and from what I have seen is VERY impressive.
