What clock speeds is the Next capable of achieving?

The Next can run at 3.5MHz, 7Mhz, 14Mhz and 28Mhz! Layer 2 cannot be used in the two highest clock speeds however. This is switchable via an OUT command, or via a function key.

Methods of using the higher speeds with Layer 2 via hardware switching back and forth may be possible but nothing is confirmed at this time.

Note that these extra speeds do not rely on anything but the FPGA. There is no RPi trickery involved :)
