Nexus S Overclocked Past The Laws of Android
As stated in the title, the Nexus S has been overclocked beyond belief by its loyal and persistent followers on Android Community.
More after the break…
The forum member known as Simms22 has unearthed overclocked processor speeds up to 1.544GHz. This is ofcourse with a rooted and custom firmware bearing device, featuring Cyanogen Mod 7. On benchmarking tests the device scored 10,082, and put it way past any device currently on the market. Considering we are talking about a single core smartphone this is an immense accomplishment. For those of you who don’t know what a score like 10,082 truly means; Samsung next generation flagship device, the Galaxy S II, has scored roughly 2939 in Quadrant Standard (benchmarking application) and 3540 in Quadrant Advanced. However these scores are at the device’s non-overclocked state, but it just shows how much the Nexus has accomplished.
Before you run out and buy a Nexus S, we have to be clear that the modder in this case has stated the benchmarking tool may have had a few bugs. What does this mean? Well the score may have been embelleshed just a tad, but the sheer gap between devices is clear and the device is one powerful machine.
