Overclocked

Samsung Galaxy S II overclocked to 1.6 GHz destroys benchmarks, nearly 7800 in Quadrant

WOW is all I have to say. We see benchmarks almost daily between custom ROM's, new versions of Android, and devices that have beefed up or new dual-core processors. What we have today is the popular and widely known standard Bell Galaxy S II that has been tweaked, hacked, and manhandled to achieve one of the highest Quadrant benchmark tests we've ever seen. All the details on this crazy overclock and high performing kernel can be found below.

HTC EVO 3D and Sensation Overclocked to 1.7 Ghz

Did any of you guys see this coming? I did but not this soon as the EVO 3D and Sensation 4G are still locked down. No kernel source has been released and the bootloaders are still locked tight for the time being. The man behind the photo you see below is Michael Huang who is the developer behind setCPU, you can follow him on twitter at @coolbho3k. Following him on Twitter he has just teased all of you proud EVO 3D and Sensation owners showing you what is coming soon.

Samsung Galaxy S II dual-core overclock destroys benchmarks at 1.5 Ghz [video]

It looks like that shiny new and what I'd call extremely thin powerhouse of an android phone you just bought is ready to have some fun. Yes I'm talking about that dual-core Samsung Galaxy S II we have heard plenty about recently. Some of those fancy developers at XDA we are always talking about in the android community have done it again, and already overclocked the SGS II to 1.5 Ghz and that is just the start.

Motorola Xoom overclocked to 1.5 Ghz with benchmark results [Guide]

Zoom, Zoom, Xooooom. The Motorola Xoom is quick don't get me wrong, but it just got a lot faster with the overclocking results I have to show you guys today. I went ahead and rooted with the very simple Xoom 1-Click-Root method, in that program you can also flash the latest Tiamat overclock kernel. I did that, took about 45 seconds. Now I'm cruising around at 1.504 Ghz and boy let me tell you, this thing is fast. Check out below to see what I mean.

HTC Inspire gets overclocked

Another day, another Android handset gets the overclocking treatment. This time, it's the HTC Inspire 4G, and thanks to the gang at XDA Developers, users can push their processing power to a blazing 1.8 Ghz. Using SetCPU and compiling a kernel for CyanogenMod 7, XDA Forum member DOAlaboratories builds on the shoulders of another XDA Dev, Kalin, to get this started.

NOOKcolor Overclocked to 950Mhz STABLE, 1Ghz CHOKIN

Behold the awesome saga of NOOKcolor. When I first set eyes on the ol' NC first, (see those posts here,) I thought she was an OK reader, but she had a lot of potential that was going to waste. Sure enough not 2 days after I sent the NC back through the mail (I was only borrowing it, after all,) we get news that it's been ROOTED. From there, it was a fantasyland of apps, workarounds, ROMs, everything you could want. Except for one thing. Noone had overclocked it, not even a little bit. Well that's changed, and it's changed today.

Exclusive: Nexus S overclocked to 1.3GHz running flawlessly – Demo

We have been following up with Team Whiskey very closely, a well known development team that reaches out to XDA Developers. Our staff has installed their Trinity v1.3 ROM and can vouch for its stability in every area of functionality. This is Team Whiskey's latest release and has proved some amazing quadrant scores in comparison to the stock ROM on the Nexus S. You can clearly see how much higher the Trinity ROM + Kernal's CPU score is compared to stock. The voltage was also increased from the standard 1.2V to 1.4V. When the voltage is pushed higher, the memory increases as well. As we know, quadrant scores aren't everything. We need our smartphones to be extremely reliable and would prefer them to be as fast as possible. That's why we decided all of our visitors at Android Community deserve a true tour of an overclocked Nexus S. The below video displays the fastest phone we have yet to cover.
