    I have an app called free memory and it says that the a4 in my iPhone 4 is running at 1024 MHz. Do u guys think this is made up or actually the real speed. I know we were all hoping for this as the speed.

    CPU speed doesn't run in doubles, so I'm pretty sure the app is wrong. I personally don't think it runs at 1Ghz, probably 800mhz.

    I guessed that. On a side note to give a good laugh my friend has a palm pre and cranked his CPU to 1 ghz and now his battery lasts litterally two hours before it dies and he doesn't believe me when I tell him it's bc he boosted it. He thinks it's because he leaves the battery plugged in.

    The A4 I believe CAN run to 1Ghz … that was one of the earliest and I think confirmed reports months before it shipped in the iPad. However its a performance-as-required type chip where the processing speed throttles due to the demand on it by apps or core system processes … making it more frugal in energy use.

    i just read that right before your post. i actually like that about this chip bc it doesnt always have to run at 1 ghz to kill battery until i need it for some heavy games or movie editing or stuff. this was a very good move by apple to compete with the snapdragon.
