We've received mixed reports about switching to ART but it seems that the majority of users who make the jump see some type of improvement. But just how noticeable is this improvement in app performance? Let us know if switching to ART has brought noticeable changes to your device's performance.
Transformer Overclocked to 1.504 GHz
Just a couple of days ago, we wrote an article regarding the latest kernel from XDA member netarchy, which allows overclocking of the ASUS Transformer to a whopping 1.4 GHz. XDA member Blades just released his kernel, which raises the bar on the OC to 1.504 GHz. This kernel has been tested over and over by the dev and claims that it is indeed quite stable. Some benchmarks yield over 63.3 MFLOPS on Linpack, and makes video playing really smooth. The first release however does cause lock ups, but the dev just released a new version, which offers more stability as well as more available RAM for applications. The dev accomplished this by slashing in half the amount of reserved ram, down to 128 MB from 256. It looks like despite the lack of availability of the device, it got to the hands of the right people as the real development is about to commence. So, if you are anxiously waiting for the 3.1 update to drop from ASUS, you will likely have it soon and running at blazing fast speeds. The dev also claims that once the kernel is stabilized more, he will start looking into 1.6 and 1.7 GHz, just because it can be done.
Please leave some feedback for the dev in the form of logs, particularly if you suffer lock ups on your device.
Its really unfortunate that this processor has so much variation regarding success at higher clocks. Tonight ill post several variations in CPU voltage.
We’ll also try 1600 and then I’ll probably start adjusting for 1700. Flame proof suit, ice cubes, etc. Jk as I have said before, gtab does this at 1375mv.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
