With XDA being a community of Android enthusiasts, it is not uncommon to see lots of bashing on Apple's iPhone here. There are different reasons for the hate, but we'd like to hear your number one reason for not going with the iPhone. Let us know your thoughts below!
Vibrant Overclocked to 1600 MHz
If there is a seat belt accessory for the Vibrant, you may want to get it and fasten it as tight as you can, because XDA member Viralblack has a little treat for Vibrant owners. Currently working on the deemed “Manhattan Project”, the dev has successfully overclocked his Samsung Vibrant to a whopping 1600 MHz!! Basically, the dev is testing different combinations of overclocking of the CPU and the GPU in order to achieve an optimal and stable combination that would yield the best possible results without compromising the device’s functionality. Among some of the results, we can see that the dev posted a few screenshots showing 89.2 fps and a Quadrant score of over 3000!
Needless to say, this is an on going project and as with any overclocking, there is a chance that you may end up frying your device, so proceed at your own discretion.
Project is simple in design and is a work in progress, overclock as far as we can go with ample supplied voltage for maximum stability. These are the screenshots taken last night from the last few builds of the evening, were up to something like 40 builds so far trying to get everything just the way we want it to run, look, and feel.
Currently we are overclocking both the GPU and CPU using both base frequency modifiers and multipliers. This is allowing us to directly push the GPU to its stable limit while adjusting out the CPU accordingly.
You can find more information in the overclocking thread.
