I know :-) I just want to explain myself why I'm confident that the lowendmac.com list is incorrect in this regard. Feel free to ignore my ramblings if you don't find them interesting or useful.

Not quite, I think. If Sonnet really used 7457 CPUs overclocked up to 1.8 GHz, the info you're seeking may be derivable somehow from (preferably non-destructively) examining such Sonnet card. If they didn't, they are not.

I'm not sure what "default frequency" means here, but yes, in terms of maximum rated frequency, during the first year
, the 7457 was 1267 MHz vs. 1300 MHz of 7447. After that
, the 7447 got downrated to 1267 MHz as well. This happened around 03/2004.
