500 was removed by TI, I guess there was some reason for that. 750 and
1250 were fabricated by you, not from some TI data, right? For uEVM
stability testing I'd remove the "unofficial" frequencies, there could
be some problems we don't know about, and uEVM has been always rock
stable with the defaults (1 and 1.5 GHz only) for me.

Looking forward to that, I hope it will give some hints.

But 3.5V is still in spec, right?
Maybe it would it be possible to mod the board to feed VSYS from some
strong lab supply?
