Moto Xoom Overclocked To 1.6GHz

Netcycler swaps an old idea for a slightly better one


All I wanna do is xooma-xoom-xoom! The Xoom was overclocked to 1.5GHz shortly after its US release. Now, thanks to a recompiled version of Tiamat 1.4.2, Moto’s Honeycomb tab hit 1.6GHz. That added clock speed was enough to earn the overclocked Xoom over 4000 points in the benchmark app, Quadrant. My stock 3.1 Xoom only scored 1500. Of course the faster clock speed also kills the battery and users on XDA have reported bad to horrible battery lives. But think of the speed! The speed! [XDA via hdblog]
