I get the feeling we're arguing two different things then.
Yeah okay, you CAN upclock through a patch provided you've already tested the chips and the console to be reliable at that clock.
The question still remains though, why not just set it at that clock in the first place?
To answer the other gaffer, with that form factor and power draw of the console, I don't think noise is much of a priority for Sony imo.
Again, I refuse to believe that the entire design does not have a healthy "safety margin" built in...
So given good yields, the July 22 FCC approval date and Patchers 1 million manufactured a month in the first year estimate, there should be at least 4 million ready to go at launch. With another million coming by the end of the year. And those are all mostly spoken for . That's a good start. Does that logic sound right?
Is it just me or it looks like the dude is also trying to turn on the controller (hand operating thing) before the gif cuts out.. that would be rather redundant to turn both on... no? Is it like the PS3, you still need to turn on the controller (hand operating thing) if you turn on the console? and can you turn the console on with the controller?
