The Quad Core processor in the Nexus 7 is doing greater things than most had even expected. It is being pushed to the limits by kernel devs. For a while now it has been overclockable to 1.6gHz where it was able to run pretty stable. Team "Clemsyn" has developed a kernel for the Nexus 7 that is capable of overclocking to 2.0gHZ. This kernel is not yet public as it has not been as stable they would like however they have publicly released a version that can be overclocked to 1.8gHz. While the kernel is very stable at 1.8gHz you will notice that they tablet does heat up quite a bit, or atleast i noticed one of the corners felt pretty hot when i tested this kernel out earlier today. There was also a pretty noticeable bump in performance! The 2.0gHz version of the kernel has reached quadrant scores of over 8000. I was reaching scores of over 6000 on the 1.8gHz version.

Very cool, finding new ways to cut battery life in half, get scores that have no real correlation to real world performance and probably fry your CPU halfway through its lifespan. Well done! LOL

while i agree that this is just SILLY when it comes to the expected battery life, i think it might be useful in certain situations. For example, SetCPU let's you customize profiles for individual apps. So while you or I might lock most apps down to the standard MHz (or GHz) for the tablet, maybe we want certain (short run) apps to take advantage of said speed, above. But like you said, i sure as hell would be worried about damage of the cpu/battery...probably not worth it in the long run. If one needs HPC, get a workstation/server!
