Teh Hardcorez Reveals That The iPhone 3GS Is Underclocked

Posted on Jun 19 2009 - 10:40am by L.

Hot off the press, the true Uber Geeks are already gutting their Apple iPhone 3GS phones. The most obvious and the most wood popping discovery thus far is the Samsung S5PC100 processor that’s powering the latest iPhone. But the S5PC100 does not appear to be “going to eleven”, its only running at 600MHz instead of its native 667MHz or its maximum 833MHz. Did Apple deliberately under clock the unit because it was already “Uber Enough” with plans to do a speed-bump upgrade later, or did they do it because of heat concerns or battery life concerns, or for some other nefarious reason? Steve? Are you there Steve? What say you?

    I am glad you asked this question, although I thought the answer would have been obvious. The reason we could not go with the native 667MHz is because the number 667 contains PRIME factors 23 and 29, and that my friends is something we simply can not allow. Next question.
