EVO 4G overclocked by 30% to 1.267GHz

EVO 4G overclocked by 30% to 1.267GHz
Xda-developer member coolbho3000 has overclocked his recently purchased EVO 4G by nearly 30%. After the boost, the phone was running at 1.267GHz, up from the stock 1GHz provided by the Qualcomm Snapdragon chip. With that speed, the device is most likely able to warm your toes on a cool winter's night. But it is summer now, and the important thing is that this handset is acting pretty stable. "No crashes yet," he says. Clicking for a Linpack benchmark test, the MFLOPS reading of about 6.95 (MFLOPS measures how fast the processor's floating-point unit [FPU] is operating),  speeds up to a reading of 8.77 once the phone is overclocked. For those of you who want to put your own unit through the stress of overclocking, don't fret. Coolbho says that he will be giving out the source to this kernel and calls it a "fairly easy tweak". He also vows to get his phone running even faster. That sounds cool, bro.

i'm pretty sure not a single person in here can say they're running the EVO on 4G... truthfully.

VZW LTE will be the first nationwide 4G network and they havent even started yet.... what does that say for Sprint? Slow and steady doesnt win the wireless race...

boston and seatlle. but they don't have any devices to utilize it yet. sprint chosing wimax was a mistake, the CEO admitted it.

dont spread lies vzw fanman... dan hesse said that they could easily switch to lte in the future if they wish you need to get your facts straight the towers will already be there for wimax all you have to do is reconfigure the towers for lte instead of wimax kinda like when a customer takes their verizon phone and flashes any trace of the raping compnay and switches it over to cricket metropcs etc...because they dont want to pay inordinate amounts of money ($140 per month for unlimited talk txt smart phone web nav and insurance for 1 phone!!!)

Im just fine and dandy running on T-Mobile's HSPA+ 3G, and it's a little faster than Sprint's 4G. I can get consistant downloads speeds between 5-7mbps on a MyTouch Slide. Pretty cool stuff!

I never heard of DAN HESSE saying that WIMAX was a mistake, but the company has admitted, alomg with CLEARWIRE CEO, that they chose it because it was relatively easy to start and be the fisrt 4G network. At some point they will switch to LTE. What is funny is that LTE is really 3.9 3GPP, so it is not considered true 4G - until it gets re-classified - I could care less as long as the speed is there.
