The Motorola XOOM is already one of the fastest Android tablets on the market thanks to a speedy 1 GHz dual core NVIDIA Tegra processor with support for 3D graphics acceleration and HD video output. But some people just like to push the limits. The developer of the SetCPU app for Android has managed to use the app to overclock the XOOM to run at 1.2 GHz.
After overclocking, the tablet scores 40mflops on the Linpack benchmark — but Linpack is designed to test performance of single core chips, so that’s probably not the best measure of speed in this case.
The XOOM optimized version of SetCPU should be available for download soon, but it won’t work properly on other phones or tablet with NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor since they use different drivers.
Update: And now xda-developers forum member coolbh3000 has managed to overclock the XOOM to 1.5 GHz. Video after the break.
