You know that ViewSonic gTablet that’s on sale for $280 today? The one with the 10 inch display and 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor? How would you like it if that was a 1.4GHz chip instead of 1 GHz? Because it turns out that’s how fast one hacker managed to get the tablet to run by using a custom ROM, custom kernel, and overclocking software.
Actually, you can overclock the chip to 1.6 GHz, but it will only run at 1.4 GHz.
That’s still fast enough for the tablet to achieve some of the highest benchmark scores of any Android device available. That’s not bad for a $280 tablet.
Of course, overclocking an Android tablet will likely take a toll on battery life. But it’s nice to have the option.
