The N900 Overclocked To 1GHz

The N900, labeled as a hacker’s phone, comes with a Cortex A8 clocked at 600 MHz. So how long was it going to be before users pushed the limits?  We now have N900’s running at an impressive 1GHz or 900 MHz or 800 MHz, you can basically pick the speed you want.

Before you entertain thoughts of doing this to your N900, do keep in mind that overclocking is generally known to reduce the life of your processor and cause stability issues, not to mention the battery drain. Manufacturers generally clock the processors to a slightly lower level than what can be safely reached, but 1 GHz sure seems to be pushing it.

That being said, reports suggest that the N900 is even more snappy at 800 MHz, up from the 600 MHz that it originally comes with. Such a hack would be useful in high duty tasks like video playback or capture.
