CPU, GPU, and System Tweaking App for GSM EVO 3D
As more devices come with multiple CPU cores, multi core-friendly CPU tweaking applications and modifications have shown up extensively in recent months. Now, there is an application to control the GPU and both CPU cores on the GSM HTC EVO 3D, as well as modify many other settings.
