CPU Boosting Application Makes Gaming on One X Even Better

A while back, we brought you news that the HTC One X wasn’t handling quite performing as well as expected in gaming. There was a tutorial created that explained why the One X was having issues and how to fix them. At the time of its release, the tutorial had a couple of methods to improve gaming performance manually. Now, there is an application available that does it automatically.

The application is called RENOVATE. Created originally by XDA Senior Member henk2484, the source code was sent to XDA Senior Member wilkyyyy who then ported it to the One X. Also in on the project was XDA Recognized Contributor hamdir, who wrote the tutorial for fixing the gaming issues.

RENOVATE is fairly simple to use. Once installed, users can enable or disable Gaming Boost mode. Once enabled, the application does a number of things. As wilkyyy explains:

…it sets all the cores to ondemand, tweaks the sampling rate, up threshold and sampling down factor, enables gpu frequency scaling, switches to the deadline scheduler and tweaks the mnfrees.

That’s quite a bit for one button press. Users have reported that it works quite well, although it does drain the battery quickly. A couple of reports have stated that the battery can be depleted in under an hour if the right game is being played. The game did not lag, though.

For more info, check out the application thread. It has also been added to hamdir’s tutorial, linked above.
