I do not own a Intel Core Duo, but I was thinking about weather or not they are easily overclocked and if in the future when the "Mac Pros", if that is what they are going to be called (powermac replacement), if they could be overclocked. This would give professionals in the video edting world an edge on the other professionals who do not over clock such as the professionals now who own the quad core powermac as opposed to either of the dual core systems..
so what do you guys think.. will the intel dual core proessors be overclocked either by professionals, computer geeks, or regular people easily?

Its not that the processors are easily overclocked, its that custom PC's have BIOS's where you can change the frequencies easily....No way will apple allow anybody to mess with the FSB

Most boards can be over clocked. When they produce a computer usually the only difference between speeds is a tiny little weld here and not there.

Actually I highly doubt that video editing professionals are the type of users that would be that interested in overclocking.

The speed gains are normally fairly negligible, and if you actually earn a living with your equipment you probably wouldn't want to take that sort of risk.

And as the others pointed out, Apple is hardly going to encourage this sort of thing.

Like Aptmunich stated, if you are making a living with your hardware. It is most likely you would have an extended warranty. Which you would not want to void out by over clocking.

I would again agree with the others. What gives a professional an "edge" is not their hardware, but rather their own personal know-how and experience.
"Faster" does not always equate to "Better".
A real professional would not take the chance of marring or burning out the tools that are their livelyhood.

I to agree with the previous statements. I am a professional graphics specialist. What would overclocking do for me? NADA! Overclocking will not help me render or shade any better then the next guy.

I played around with overclocking with PC's when I was into heavy gaming... I can wrap overclocking up in one word, 'OVERRATED' or is it two words, 'OVER RATED' !?? LOL... anyways, you you know what I am saying!

Overclocking is for the people who wish not to upgrade but instead tweak as much out of thier old stuff as they can... I feel the little change in performance is not worth the aggrevation.

Example, I can over clock my imac to around 1.25ghz (its an 800), but at that speed it would over heat and fry everything.
