Keller is an industry veteran who brought plenty of experience to Apple's mobile processors. He was previously vice president at P.A.

I had a AMD spitfire 600, and it could be clocked with c2 snow to past 3 ghz. And i think the spitfire also lacked the SMP lock, so you could have used several of those bad boys. I know of very few chips that had more than 5x overclock rate. imagine intel I7 running at 4ghz*5 (20 ghz).
