Overclocked Google Nexus 7 scores high on Quadrant Benchmark
Take a developer named "Morfic". He took the quad-core Tegra 3 processor on his Google Nexus 7 tablet and overclocked it to 1.64MHz. The result? How about a Quadrant Benchmark score above 7,000 with battery life that is still good. "Morfic" uses the Trinity Kernel Toolbox which allows him to overclock for gaming and underclock at other times to achieve the battery life that he does. Yeah, some might say that what this is all about is satisfying the male ego. You know, the "mine is faster than yours" kind of thing. But isn't pushing the envelope how we got to the point we are at technology wise?

I'm starting to trust nvidia chips now, the only things i complain about is the overheat of the chips... nothings else more... thats why i prefer the qualcomm cooler chips :)

now just imagine an overclocked S4 chip.....

And one of their pro ones overclocked... *salivates*

and imagine if it is an overclocked QUADCORE s4 chip....
we would see scrores in 8000s

Nvidia and qualcomm team up *epic phone*

That's more of a fantasy than a reality seeing as how Nvidia and Qualcomm are rival chip manufacturers. An even better fantasy would be to see Qualcomm and Samsung team up.

man i wish it was like 9100 so i could say
hey whats the nexus 7's power level?
ITS OVER 9000!

Nice Fat Type-O - "Google Nexus 7 tablet and overclocked it to 1.64MHz" Holy Snap! 1.64 MHz?!?!?! It's like the days of the first Intel chips with 128kb of ram!

Since a lot of you do not understand how custom kernel impacts the quadrant scores, let me break it down.
You see the ballooned IO score on the Nexus? That's because IO scores are ballooned through running IO tests from memory instead of NAND storage. Same trick utilized to "fake" qudrant tests for many years now. This is also the same reason why i'm always questioning Qualcomm S4 based device scores in quadrant
In terms of performance gained, CPU portion of the quadrant should be a good indicator
This is the same reason why franco kernel typically outperforms other kernels in quadrant by a big margin on the same device

Quadrant makes my single core 600 lg optimus t better than every almost every dual core device with a 3100 quadrant score
It also makes my acer iconia a100 Tegra 2 seem the best with a 6000 quadrant score
I love quadrant so many bragging rights :-)

I love Franco kernel I still use it on my optimus one when Franco was still developing for it

if overclocking the chip give shorter lifespan then htc is doing a stupid mistake
they overclock the snapdragon s3 to 1.7ghz on the asian htc one s

1.64MHz - It should be 1.64GHz. :) 1.64MHz sure is slow.

Never been crazy about benchmark tests...as a classic EVO owner, I find that overclocking my phone does help to keep it performing on the same levels as most newer phones, but I never really bother with the numbers from Quadrant...mainly because the numbers aren't always consistent (one test brings a 985 on Quad, second test two minutes later gets a 1070) and they don't always determine what makes a phone run well. A phone can be smooth and powerful without a high score, though high scores do get a lot of publicity for the devices.
