XOOM Now Zooming Along at 1.7 GHz Thanks to Tiamat Kernel
Not to long ago, we brought you news that the Motorola XOOM had been overclocked to 1.6 GHz. Now it seems as if XDA forum member bigrushdog is at it again by rushing your XOOM’s clockspeed all the way up to 1.7 GHz. The end result is a 70% CPU overclock… Simply amazing.
With a 70% CPU overlock and a 33% GPU overclock, you may be able to stave off Kal-El (Quad Core Tegra 3) inspired jealously for a little while.
In the words of the developer:
Release Notes for 1.4.4: 1.7Ghz is likely as far as we can push the Tegra2 cores. We have stress tested the heck out of 1.7 and it is safe. However, safe does not mean stable. Personally, I can run 1.7 on Interactive governor all day and it’s smooth as butter. Other folks get reboots. If you can not run at 1.7, try 1.6. Everybody who tested was able to run at 1.504 without any problems.
Just because this release is clocked to 1.7, that does not mean you can not run at stock speeds. Simply do not overclock. The settings for 1Ghz are identical to stock settings. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you leave your device on INTERACTIVE. You may use Performance solely for benchmarking purposes, but then PUT IT BACK.
Be sure to continue on to the kernel thread to get your XOOM overclocking fix; your tablet will thank you.
