    did nenamark1 on my stock G2. got 32FPS. while 35 is a 3fps increase, its very minute. I'd like to see someone actually overclock the GPU and the GPU only in a phone. I bet its just a matter of time.

    Me i personally wouldnt OC the phone to 1.4, but maybe to the processors original clock speeds of 1ghz.

    from what i read the cpu in the G2 is underclocked to 800mhz

    Its not doing any harm to the phone. My battery life surprisingly is still really good, don't see much of a difference. The real difference comes in emulators and applications. I've had it overclocked for 2 days now and its ridiculously fast. Everything loads instantly and its consistent.

    Saying the processors original speed is 1 Ghz is not true. People are just making that up, there's no factual source from Qualcomm stating this.

    GPU acceleration will come but it isn't supported by android right now. Hopefully that's a feature of Gingerbread because it could lead to much better performance in gaming and such.

    Is there any progress with underclocking? My G2 is already "stupid fast," I'd rather tone things down and get a better battery life and cooler run temperature.

    Not to say that overclocking isn't nice, I'll try it sometime, but I wouldn't want to leave it like that for day-to-day use. At least not as high as 1.4ghz.

    I think you can underclock just by getting SetCPU and setting it lower.

    Correct, you can underclock it with SetCPU. You don't need to overclock to underclock.

    @ `Ghost`, that's not official. It's just a random site stating their opinions. Qualcomm has never said it.

    Actually Sprint's WiMax is capable of peak speeds "above 10Mbps" (quoted from Sprint's 4G page). Here is proof of this claim:

    I personally average 7 Mbps down and +1 Mbps up consistantly in my own house using my Epic 4G. My highest was 8.45 Mbps. Just wanted to give my 2 cents.
