Overclocked Droids Reaching 3GHz [VIDEO]

Late last week the mobile tech sites were all abuzz over some overclocking. According to the BoyGeniusReport, the Droid X and the Droid 2 have been reported of getting overclock speeds up to 3GHz.  Naturally, some where questioning its authenticity so a video was uploaded to prove it could happen.


Original Video- More videos at TinyPic

After seeing the video, what do you think? Real? Fake? Do you care?

    I’m not really surprised that these proccessors reached 3Ghz, amazed yes, surprised no, but battery power does need to come into consideration here and getting the balance between clocking speed and battery life is crucial in these smartphones, still god damn impressive though.

    This was already proven fake by the creator of setcpu take this down it isn’t news

    totally fake the processor can not run @ 3Ghz sorry. i deal with high end pc ahrdware daily and that much of an oc on a mobile processor would result in overheating if not frying the chip

    “After talking to him, the “3GHz overclock” might not be an intentional hoax, but it certainly doesn’t actually work.”

    Really… as stated above this was already proven to be a hoax by the creator of SetCPU. Not to mention did you see how laggy scrolling was at “3ghz” what a joke. This video should have been reviewed and immediately thrown out as trash.

    Show some benchmarks, not a stupid video that can be fakes. Well, I suppose benchmarks can be faked too. How about releasing instructions if you expect anyone to believe outrageous claims.

    ummmm yeah, not really possible with that chip. Also if it “were” I wouldn’t hold it as the phone would eventually explode.
