When do we find out what the CPU is clocked at?

    I want to know if we have a true 1Ghz processor or not >.<

    Considering how much slower the iPhone 4 benchmarks are, the A4 is most likely underclocked.

    Agreed. There's a severe lack of info on the CPU speed. That tells me that it isn't 1Ghz. I think there were a lot of assumptions made on it because of the iPad.

    I feel like it isn't 1Ghz as well, but it's ridiculous that we STILL don't know what it actually is...

    It doesn't seem much faster then a 3gs so my guess would be 600mhz like in the 3gs.

    We find out when the iPad gets iOS 4 and the two can be benchmarked with the same OS. Or if someone manages to install iOS 3 on the iPhone 4.

    I would bet it uses dynamic frequency adjustment based upon load, with a max speed of ~750-800MHz.

    I was JUST gonna say that. It would explain why we don't know the exact answer...people keep getting different results at different points because it keeps changing on them.

    Why? Will knowing the CPU speed make the phone any better or worse?

    It all boils down to certain people like to be able to rattle off a spec sheet to others. It improves their self-esteem, apparently, to be able to show that their hunk of silicon, metal and glass has a higher set of numbers than someone else's hunk of silicon, metal and glass.

    I'd say it's been fairly conclusively deduced to be 800mhz

    When the iPhone 5 comes out and apple brags about how much faster the processor is then the old one.

    Actually anandtech says "CPU Apple A4 @ ~800MH" on the listing table.

    I found Apple literature buried on their website that says it's clocked at "ludicrous speed".

    Keep in mind that the ip4 has to push out 4x as many pixels also

    It's odd because when I run Sunspider Javascript Benchmark, the iPad is only 1% faster overall than the iPhone 4. And when I ran 3D Benchmark, the iPad was only 2% faster than the iPhone 4.

    If the iPad version of Geekbench gets released, we can tell a lot from that.

    FYI, the iPhone 4 runs Sunspider Javascript Benchmark 27% faster than the 1GHz EVO.

    I can see a new thread coming: "Overclocking your A4 to 2GHz - teardown instructions!"

    You should get an android phone if you so care about CPU clocked...
