T-Mobile G2x overclocked to 1.5GHz, scores high on benchmark tests
posted by Alan F. / Jun 03, 2011, 2:49 PM
The overclocked G2x was able to score a Samsung Galaxy S II-like quadrant benchmark score of 3264. The Linpack score was about 55MFLOPS. But before you start overclocking your T-Mobile G2x, there are some negative things that could happen to your handset from speeding it up. One is that battery life, not great to begin with on most Android phones, will get even worse. And who wants to put all that stress on your brand new phone? In addition, the kernel used is in its beta stage so it is not 100% stable.
If after some careful thought you decide that you still want to go ahead and overclock your T-Mobile G2x, go akead and click on the sourcelink.

I have a friend that works for tmobile and he has the G2x with Trinity kernal clocked at 1.5 as well and got over 4k quadrant score as clutch 12 mentioned. This phone is a beast as soon as things look a bit ore stable i shall be doing the same on my g2x.

Stable Andoid OS is an oxymoron.

yeah you better stick to your iOS where you can't tweak anything or learn through experimentation. Yes, stick to your simple play toy and don't bother us PC guys who like to overclock and push our hardware to the limits.

yeah, it was probably Quadrant on the first run. Everyone knows you gotta do at least 3-4 runs to get the best results...maybe PA didn't want to hurt the SGSII guys feelings =pPS, I own an SGSII hehehehe

bah, at least they are trying to take steps to look less like applephonearena and bringing us fun things about other phones. The only danger in these types of posts is it gets a bunch of people who have no business rooting their phones all excited to try this stuff. That just leads to more people coming in my store trying to pretend they dont know why their phone doesnt work.. lol Oh well.. pushing it to the limits is half the fun of android. :)
