    Hi,
    don't know where to post this so I decided to do this here.

    Yesterday a friend told me that the Ipod got an 600 mghz processor(?) which runs with 400 mghz.

    Know I asked myself if it would be possible to "overclock" it to its real 600 mghz.

    Do you think that would be possible?

    The only reason Apple underclocked it from 600 MHz was to improve system stability, battery life, and the heat from the processors. Overclocking it would prolly do more harm than good. It might be possible, but I dont think anybody would want to try it.

    nope, its entirely software related, right now there is just a software block to keep it running around 412mhz (for good reason)

    Basically if you overclocked the processor, you would need to keep it plugged in to preserve battery live
    and put it on ice so it wouldn't catch fire...It would be nice to make it faster, but It could possibly turn your iPod into a stove

    instead of overclocking, we should be looking in on how to UNDERCLOCK it, so we can all enjoy a much longer battery life. (Idea was introduced into the psp scene and resulted in much longer battery life when the CPU was underclocked)

    Lol.

    Apple has slightly increased the processor speed to 412MHz compared to 410MHz in Firmware 1.1.1, so it just might be possible that they could increase it further in future firmware updates.
