Second, keeping the MHz low will mean low heat output, quieter cooling, and longer life. Everyone is scared of repeating the RRoD debacle that MS suffered through.

Third, I'm sure this proc will have a burst mode that will overclock it to some higher MHz level like 2.4 or even 3.0. Since 1.6 is so low, I'm sure there's lots of overhead built in, and the system will ramp up accordingly.

I agree with #2 and that was my first thought as well. But lets say #3 is accurate... I would advertise burst mode speed then vs base. But you are correct a smart console would have variable speeds, no reason to run it hot playing a blue ray or browsing.
