| by Shunal Doke |
Google’s popular flagship tablet Nexus 7 was successfully overclocked to 1.6 GHz, according to a report by AndroidPit. When run through Quadrant’s benchmarking tool, the tablet gave a score of 7130. This is almost twice the score that an HTC One X gives when put through the same benchmarks.
The developers haven’t tested the overclocked tablet to see if the boost in speed affects day-to-day tasks. But it is worth noting that the $199 Nexus 7 has beaten devices that cost thrice as much in benchmarks.
