    A brave soul over at XDA decided to take his new Nexus 7 tablet to the limit. He threw a custom kernel on the device and then overclocked it to a massive 1.64GHz. With these clock speeds he was able to crush every other device on the market in benchmarks. You can see the results in the the pic above. Just in case you are tempted by this, the kernel he used is the new “Trinity Seven” kernel from Trinity AKA Morfic. You can read more about it at the link below, but as always, be cautious if you decide to give it a try.

    Not a huge overclocker... especially now with dual core and quad core processors. It sure is nice to see what my awesome nexus 7 can do though.

    wow that is a huge gap between that and the next ones, what do the normal benchmarks look like?

    the nexus 7 is definitely appealing, but i just flashed a jb rom on my kindle fire so i've got something to occupy my interest until i have an extra $200 laying around...

    Why is that a huge overclock? 1.3Ghz to 1.64Ghz is only 340Mhz. My Thunderbolt can be overclocked from 1GHz to 1.92Ghz and be stable.

    I hope you're joking, that's not how it works.

    This tablet definitely has potential, I think Google knew people would be squeezing out every ounce of performance when they went with an under clocked Tegra 3. I am so torn between getting this or the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity. The infinity has better specs but its just not a Nexus device, and clearly won't achieve performance like this until it gets 4.1.1.

    Big hardware features missing from the N7 (that people seem to complain about) is no external SD storage (without rooting and USB OTG cable, which some people don't want to do) and no HDMI out. That, 7 vs. 10 inch, and obviously the price will probably be the factors in considering which one to go with IMO.

    For myself, since I knew I could rely on cloud storage and didn't want to spend a lot, the N7 made perfect sense. Also as an e-reader the 7" form factor is perfect.

    Couldn't agree more. I have a Transformer Prime already which satisfies my 10" tablet needs, and the keyboard attachment makes it like a little ultra book. The n7 would probably be used more for reading/social media/you tube, that sort of stuff.

    My biggest problem with my Nexus 7 is when my kids steal it to watch Netflix. ;)

    Something is fishy about this score. I ran the same OC on the same kernel and got ~4700ish. Back down to 1.5GHz now, though; 1.64 wasn't totally stable.
