Team DeFuse has overclocked the Droid X and Droid 2 to CPU speeds upwards of 2 GHz. Yes, 2 Ghz. We don't have a lot of details, aside from a couple pictures and a short video that doesn't really show us anything, so these guys know how to tease and hold our attention as well as overclock their hardware. Word is that a stable version is in the works and they plan on releasing it to the rest of the world soon. In the meantime, I'd love to see a couple benchmarks to see how it affects CPU performance. Throw us a bone, fellas! The mentioned teaser video is after the break. [Droid-Life]
Update: According to the developer of SetCPU, we've all been duped: "Okay, the 2GHz video is a deliberate and obvious hoax, not even confusion." It's a shame, I was really wanting this for the X and the D2, and I know a lot of you guys did as well. Note to hackers -- don't get upset when asked for proof before we write up your work in the future.
Update 2: We love nerdfights! (especially when we aren't doing any of the fighting). Up top is a new video we just received, along with some choice words for the SetCPU developer. I'm not really sure what the video is trying to show, so I'll be blunt -- I want to believe, but I want benchmarks. George W said it best -- "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, we don't get fooled again."
