Motorola Xoom Gets Overclocked To 1.6GHz

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2011

Overclocking is the computer geek equivalent to souping up a Hot-Rod. Both go fast, but in different ways. A few months back we heard that the new Motorola Xoom Android Honeycomb tablet had been overclocked to 1.5GHz, and now someone has broke that threshold, with a speed of 1.6GHz.

The guys over at the XDA are the ones who did it. They have managed to get the Xoom’s processor up to 1.6GHz and guess what. That extra clock speed helped the Xoom score over 4000 in the Quadrant benchmark app, compared to around 1500 in the Xoom with its standard clock speed. Yeah. Not a bad boost at all.

If you think that the Hummingbird processor in your Nexus S is a bit slow at 1GHz, maybe you can overclock it, like morfic at XDA has managed to do. He overclocked the Nexus S to 1.2 Ghz and developed a new kernal which allows owners of the Nexus S to add an extra 200 million clock cycles to the processing power.

The only problem is that with this increase in speed, you are going to have some glitches. The increased speed disables the phone’s Bluetooth capabilities for one, but hey you have more power. There’s always a price to pay.
