Get out the oven mitts: Nexus One OC’d to 9GHz!

I may toot the MOTO DROID horn from time to time and brag about how overclocking said device to 1GHz is impressive — considering 2x the stock clock speed is nothing to scoff at, especially for a smartphone. It appears however the Snapdragon processor in the Nexus One among others is far more capable, with quite a bit more headroom for overclocking shenanigans. So how high would you normally figure Snapdragon could be OC’d (ignoring the fact it’s in the title already): 2GHz, 2.5GHz, 4GHz?

Try 9GHz! 4x stock speed for a mobile device is insane. 9GHz is just….I don’t know really. Words fail me at this point. The kernel allowing such speeds hasn’t been released yet, but if testing goes well and no one (or Nexus One) spontaneously combust, look for it to start hitting N1 forums in soon. What exactly do you do that you need 9GHz power in your phone? More importantly, how long would it last running at that speed, 5 minutes? Hope you like outlets…
