Xiaomi Mi 5 Extreme version rocks with overclocked CPU, GPU and RAM
posted by Alan F. / Sep 09, 2016, 11:53 AM
For starters, the CPU is overclocked by 19% to 2.15GHz from the 1.8GHz clock speed on the regular model. The Adreno 530 GPU runs at 624MHz, a 22% bump from the usual 510MHz, and the 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM is now measured at 1866MHz. That is a 40% boost from the 1333MHz speed found on the regular Mi 5. Keep in mind that the same 3000mAh battery is employed, which means that battery life will be negatively affected.
The phone is available in four colors, White, Black, Gold and Purple. The price is the equivalent of $298.50 USD except for the black model, which is priced slightly higher at $306 USD.

Lol, that's basically a 821, still, 820 is the underdog this year, weaker than both a10 and exynos, though it is used in more devices

Not even that, there are 3 versions of the Snapdragon 820 (MSM8996): lite regular pro (also called Snapdragon 821) The new Xiaomi changes the lite for the regular version, not the SD821

There are 2 versions of mi5( the regular and pro version). Regular version uses lower binned 820 and the pro version uses regular 820. The pro version is only available in China and comes with a ceramic back and 128GB storage. How else do you think QC is getting rid of the bad 820s.

I think thats what Tyler meant "The new Xiaomi changes the lite for the regular version, not the SD821" i.e. the pro mi5 uses the regular 820, not 821 Which is true The 821 has even higher clocks And rumors are that the lower clocked Kryos have the same caches as the higher clocked Kryos (which isnt true on the 820)

Meh, all brains-brawn and not enough supplies! I've had it. Xiaomi killed my interest with Mi5 (ceramic) unavailability in my area.

And by what percentage is the battery life reduced? I've overclocked processor, ram and graphics card on my pc and that sometimes comes at a significant increase in power draw. However i only do that when i really need to as the performance increase does not scale equally with the overclocked. A 30% overclock might give only a 5-10% performance boost.

It's not overclocked, this article is about nothing. 64GB version of Mi5 always had SD820 at full speed which means 2,15GHz. Only the 32GB version had downclocked version (to 1,8GHz) and it still has.

Dear Alan F. This Mi 5 "Extreme Edition" you are talking about, it already exists. Go to GSMArena and look at the specs of Xiaomi Mi 5 64 GB edition.

Isn't this just the normal higher end mi5 that's been on sale for months. It came in two tiers 32gb with an underclocked 820 and 64gb/128gb with the regular one.
