UPDATED: DROID X, DROID 2 over-clocked to a face melting 2.0GHz [UPDATE] make that 3.0GHz

Wondering just how much juice could be squeezed from your Motorola DROID X or DROID 2 after seeing T-Mobile’s G2 up-clocked to 1.42GHz? Well, wonder no more. Droid-Life is reporting that two users from Team DeFuse have managed to over-clock both the DROID X and DROID 2 from 1.0GHz all the way up to 2.0GHz. The blog also noted that the duo is working to “make the release stable,” which would be pretty impressive. We haven’t seen any benchmark statistics emerge from the severely over-clocked handsets, but we’re sure it is only a matter of time. Hit the break to see a short video showing the D2 running at warp speed.

UPDATE: Matt from Team DeFuse just hit us up with an update. He’s managed to ratchet up the DROID 2 up to 3.0GHz. Nice work Matt, keep a fire extinguisher close by though!

UPDATE 2: According to a tweet by the developer of SetCPU, this is all a hoax: “Okay, the 2GHz video is a deliberate and obvious hoax, not even confusion.”

UPDATE 3: Matt hit us up again with another, very not fake, video of his DROID 2 running at 3.0GHz. We can’t take all this blogging drama on a Friday. Hit the jump for the new video. More →

Motorola DROID 2 World Edition clocked at 1.2 GHz?

Earlier this morning, blog Droid-Life posted images of the Motorola DROID 2 World Edition. The pictures were, to be blunt, not all that interesting; the device looks nearly identical to the DROID 2 currently shipping. What is most interesting, however, is the fact that benchmarks from the DROID 2 WE indicate that the unit’s processor is clocked at 1.2 GHz. For those of you keeping score at home: that’s a full 200 megahertz higher than the model currently shipping. Pretty sultry stuff from the DROID 2. What do you think? More →
