    I get less lag on my Evo running at 1152 mhz [that's an overclocking of 154mhz and an increase in mflops of like 3, MAYBE]

    Hey, but we still don't know if the Pre 2 comes with an OMAP3630 processor, or did I miss something?

    The claims by these developers of overclocking to 2ghz+ has been updated and shown to be false...never happened...

    I agree and you have to inherently distrust someone who is listens to Linkin Park.

    So I just spoke to the guy in IRC.

    The source for the overclocking module they are using is at milestone-overclock - Project Hosting on Google Code and the particular settings he is using is at #1242050 - Pastie

    His twitter feed is at Twitter

    Assuming the same processor lands in the Pre 2, how easily translated is this code? Is it just a matter of adding code to make it abide by the seven principles?

    It all depends what is in the kernel source code for the Pre 2 that appears on Welcome to opensource.palm.com - Palm ...

    Without source or linpack numbers posted, I'm skeptical.
    Follow me on Twitter: http://twitter.com/warthogkernel

    Experimental warthog kernels for webOS devices. Patches such as Muffle System Logging, Max Blocker etc.

    Donations go towards further experimentation.

    Commentors are pointing out what you can clearly see which is that theirs lag with this "overclock" or what have you.

    Lag that doesn't even happen on my Evo.

    BTW, there is nothing new in the Droid X overclocking techniques compared to what we do now on the OMAP3430 in the Pre.

    So either they are simply seeing a higher reported clock freq with no corresponding real performance increase (something we have seen previously in some experiments with extreme overclocking on the Pre and Pixi), or alternatively if they do show some real benchmarks with significant real performance improvements then we have some good things to look forward to with the Pre 2 if it indeed does have the same processor.

    We also need to see what changes Palm has made in the kernel for webOS 2.0 - hopefully they have dynamic voltage and frequency scaling working now.

    Only time will tell ...

    question: can you overclock chips to whatever speeds you want? I'm thinkin you can, it's just if you made the pre go to 3 ghz it would melt. Or am I mistaken? I'm a noob but I'm very curious as to why/how things are done.

    There is a point where the maximum delay path along a combinatorial logic circuit exceeds the clock period of the two storage elements at the ends of that path. At that point, logic errors ensue, and the device becomes erratic or completely inoperable.

    bring the liquid cooling, lets get this thing up to 5 ghz xD

    While that may be a cool experiment the actual gain of OCing to 5 ghz is unlikely to be worth it.

    Would love to see it though :P
