With Android tablets and phones coming out with the increasingly popular and powerful Tegra and Tegra 2 processors, overclocking has become somewhat of a culture. One of the latest Android devices to be overclocked is the Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet sporting the Tegra 2 processor and running Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Credit goes to XDA-Developers forum member netarchy for developing a kernel capable of squeezing out a beefy 1.4Ghz frequency.
Now 1.4Ghz may sound impressive, in fact very impressive, but all is not peachy. An overclock at 1.4Ghz isn’t entirely stable as yet for everyday usage. The kernel is still being worked on to fix the instability issues but you can still manage a modest overclock at 1.2Ghz without any worries.
