Project: Overclocking the Adreno GPU on Snapdragon Devices

Android developers are pretty familiar with overclocking the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) of various Android devices. Overclocking the newer devices, such as the Nexus One and EVO 4G, is much more difficult due to its so-called QSD Snapdragon GPU chips. The developers still haven’t succeeded in overclocking these chips, because the chips handle the graphics differently from the MSM chips found on older Android devices. XDA member and Android developer Geniusdog254 has now started this project and is now actively working on it, with the help of other developers.

I’m sure we all heard about being able to overclock the GPU on some of the old MSM devices, but the Snapdragon handles the graphics chip in a different way. The goal of this thread is to try and overclock the GPU on Snapdragon devices as well.

The good news is that Qualcomm just released new video drivers, which seem to be a lot better for development purposes. The thread is instantly updated with any updates from the developer.

Visit the project thread to find more detailed information and updates.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
