Motorola XOOM Goes Warp Speed, Overclocked at 1.5 GHz

Motorola Xoom

The 1 GHz processor of Motorola Xoom has been successfully brought to 1.5GHz clock speed. The Motorola XOOM is apparently pretty stable at that speed, and is making most impressive benchmarks we’ve ever seen on a tablet or really any device for that matter. A few kernel modifications were made and the dual core chip in the Xoom even more powerful than the recently announced Tegra 2 3D.

The new kernel defaults to 1 GHz for safety but it is capable of 1.2 GHz, 1.4 GHz and 1.5 GHz clock speeds. Coolbho3000 of XDA tested various clock speeds, stability and performance. He also updated his SetCPU application to support the Motorola tablet and is in the process of working on a Honeycomb tablet-optimized version. Once he got his Xoom up and running at 1.5GHz, he ran a Quadrant benchmark that was nearly off the charts as shown in the screen below.
