Nexus S overclocked to 1.2GHz
Google's Nexus S handset is no slouch, especially running Android Gingerbread with its Ext4 file system. Ext4 is one of the things the lagfix for the Samsung Galaxy S brought, and improved significantly the read/write speed, which was the main bottleneck for the otherwise superb 1GHz Hummingbird chipset to be showing ho-hum results in Android benchmark apps out of the box.

The Nexus S doesn't have this problem, but that still didn't stop the crafty folks over at the XDA-Developers forum from pumping up the processing speed to 1.2GHz from the default one gigahertz. That is 20% improvement, and pictured below are some impressive benchmarks we saw in the thread that ensued, albeit with the core at 1.3GHz. Head over to the thread link in the source, if you want to follow the developments.
