    Has anyone attempted to overclock their Prism? Afterburner 3 allows overclocking only to 32 mhz, while the Prism and Platinum already have 33 mhz processors...

    you can write your own overclocking program!

    boyhead, it's quartus.net, and no, I won't program my own overclocking program because I can't. But if you can, please do us all a favor and give it a try. If you can't, or won't, keep your comments to yourself.

    (I know your pride is wounded ever since I privately chided you for calling others on this board "idiots," but grow up and move on.)

    pride would be inaccurate, try hubris. i will keep in mind that when one does not have the necessary experience to accomplish a task one should shut up. given your proliferate postings, i cant help but to imagine that most if not all are either "me too" statements or pathetic pleadings for some software or solution that only you, in your neurotic obsession w/ your handheld computer, have deemed necessary. after all, you did nuke your prism on day one. perhaps it is best that you ask for advice and not give it.

    I haven't researched the new Dragonball's overclocking potential, but in the mean time you might want to try "QuickBits" from http://www.2bitsoftware.com

    QuickBits is not an overclocker. Instead it appears to replace a number of low-level OS routines with heavily optimized versions. Specifically, BltDrawChars, WinSaveBits, and MemSet are all improved. In addition, it has the ability to remove wait states from RAM access (though I don't know how much effect that will have on a Prism).

    I found the improvement to be quite noticeable in certain apps, which is welcome because the Prism appears to be *much* slower than the VDX in certain operations (pushing around 4 times as many bits for each pixel costs some extra CPU cycles).

    I'm actually surprised at how stable QuickBits has been on my Prism. I figured it might be dicey to try using software that is modifying OS level routines. I used to be comfortable with overclocking my Deluxe.
    I did have a problem of many fatal errors after installing the latest QuickBits. After deleting it and re-installing it, it worked just fine. Maybe one should disable QuickBits before installing a new version?

    I don't think it's necessary to call anyone pathetic. Keep your insults to yourself.
