Firstly, the CPU is a 900 MHz Cortex A8 which has actually been underclocked to 600 MHz.
It's a 600MHz CPU that seems to do well at up to 900MHz under the circumstances it has found itself in the hands of Pandora devs. I wish this particular inaccurate fact could be remedied once and for all. For all we know TI could change the silicon three months from now and suddenly all chips fail at 650MHz. I don't see that happening but it is worth noting.
Keep repeating this to yourselves gang. Pandora's going to allow people to do overclocking, yes. You're damned nuts if you're writing code that ends up needing it.
Keep solidly in mind of what we're seeing in the way of performance on the Pandora with the GP2X straight migrations- I'm curious just precisely what an overclock would allow to happen that's only half again faster that a code clean up would be unlikely to accomplish the same result...
Also, overclocking the OMAP won't decrease its lifetime. Unless it gets really hot, which it probably won't. Considering we're not increasing its CPUv at all.
