Alright. This question is mainly in regard to manufacturing. I'm not here to talk about numbers in terms of performance, or anything like that. Don't have too much knowledge when it comes to the manufacturing of our wonderful hardware in the computing world, which is why i'm hoping someone will clear this up for me.


Now, the Qualcomm 8260 found in the HTC Sensation for example. There are two versions. One with a clock of 1.2GHz, and another @ 1.5. Do they do ANYTHING at all in the factory to the CPU with the higher clockrate? Anything at all to compensate for the fact that it's higher? Or are they both built to a same, certain standard so longevity/durability is out of the question with the extra 300MHz?

I am asking mainly because i am about to get an HTC Sensation. What i want to know is; if i get the lesser of the two (1.2GHz), will I be able to simply overclock it to 1.5GHz, and will it not have any detrimental effects? Assuming aformentioned manufacturing is out of the question, and all they do is raise the clock rate via software, which is basically what i want to do, assuming i get the one with the 1.2GHz CPU...I hope that wasn't confusing...

I'd like to know, too.

This is an older post, but you need to bear in mind that the HTC sensation XE need not be the same environment.

The cpu may be exactly the same - put out the same performance, handle the same frequencies, but the XE version of the phone with it's bigger battery, may be able to handle a higher drain without detrimental voltage drop, or mitigate heat better.
