you have good eyes :)

Well, someone has found that we can order the Texas Instruments
DM3730CBP100 to compare with the "standard" 800 MHz version
at some higher cost.

So we have built a handful of boards for the complete variant.
This means that the CPU of this device can be officially run at 1 GHz.

But all OMAP3 CPUs can be overclocked. I think there are descriptions
for the BeagleBoard XM and the OpenPandora going up by 30% or more.

Note that the operation voltage has to be adjusted and power
demand may rise. And, the system may run for hours but suddenly
a single bit may fail... The crash may be harmless or harmul depending
on which bit it is (it could be for a file system superblock just being written...)
