That being said, it is no slouch either.
Here's my thing though. Even though the 3VO is being shown as underclocked, if we're talking straight out of the box, how does the Tegra 2 match up.
From what I've seen, it's pretty even, right? Granted, a lot of the people on the forums root their phones, but I haven't even rooted my EVO after 1 year and it was fast enough for me, even when it was dragging due to some cache issues I wasn't aware of until I hard reset my phone.
If the Tegra 2 works faster than my EVO 4G out of the box, that's all that I need.
