Overclocking an Android device seems to be a hot topic at the moment. Last week we saw a Motorola Droid supposedly running at 3.0Ghz. This week we find evidence of a Samsung Galaxy S running at 1.6GHz.
Team Whiskey (a group of five overclockers) has managed to ramp up the Samsung Galaxy S processor to 1.6GHz. To prove the overclock is real, they have provided a set of test result images.
The first image (see above) shows the overclocked speed of the device. The following image shows the device’s Quadrant score (Quadrant is a benchmark for mobile devices, capable of measuring CPU, memory, I/O and 3D graphics performance). The results are hugely impressive compared to the Nexus One.
The third image shows the Linpack result (Linpack benchmarks are a measure of a system’s floating point computing power).
Not only have Team Whiskey been working on overclocking the processor but they have also unlocked the GPU. A GPU benchmark can be seen in the final image. The GPU unlock manages to produce an astonishing 74.6 frames per second.
There is no indication how the mod effects battery life; we think it will be drastically reduced. If you decide to give this a try, let us know how the device performs.
