With Kernel Source Released, HTC Thunderbolt Clocked to 1.8GHz Pushing 3000+ Benchmarks

HTC released the kernel source to the Thunderbolt late last night and already, we’re seeing developers take a crack at overclocking the device.  Early reports had a 1.5GHz overclock in the wild, but on a 1.8GHz overclock created by @drod2169, our buddies @TheRealBeesley and @JsinLegacy dropped 2772 and 3047 Quadrant Benchmarks on us.  It’s about to get nutty around here.

    I have had my thunderbolt less than a week and my battery is almost dead within 5 hours and that is with minimum usage and turning everything off before locking the screen. It is hot a lot too….not happy….my 2 year old blackberry had a better battery performance even when I was on it all day!

    I’ll overclock my Thunderbolt when I start running scientific applications on it. Are there any Android apps (non-games) that would noticeably benefit from overclocking?

    Hit 2900 + on an Atrix with motoblur

    Thunderbolt maxed to 1.8 and custom Rom barely hits 3000. lol

    Nothing to get excited about and yes Quadrant scores are overrated.

    2.4 should be fun.

      That’s cool, but just know that you’ll be stuck there forever….

    The only time my battery drains quickly is if I use the free MiFi Hot Spot feature and its not plugged in, otherwise my battery life is pretty darn good.

    Anyone wondering about thunderbolt battery, make sure you’re not double-syncing things through sense (facebook, twitter, etc.) Sense’s syncing is CONSTANT, meaning it is a constant pull/push of data. disable that and sync just through the default application.

    Also, disable GPS when you’re not using navigation, it’s not needed for anything else, this phone does just fine pulling GPS over the radio anyway.

    My tbolt can last me about a full day and half with moderate to heavy use. More stuff you have going, more stuff that runs down battery.

    In other news, PLEASE RELEASE UNBOLTED0.2!

      Good call. You can’t rely on the defaults to make you through the day. After reading your post, I dug a bit deeper into the phone and found that my emails were defaulted to Update ever 15 mins for 3 accounts! If thats not a battery drain then idk what is. haha

    Great scores but uh…battery life with it overclocked?? I’m sure after they ran the quadrant test they had to plug the phone into the charger :)

    interesting, stuff like this almost makes you forget about dual-core cpu…
    nice to know that 8×55 still haves room to compete

  • Mii

    I’m interested in quadrant doing dual core tests, there seems no reason why a 1.5 clocked dual core xoom would have a lower score than a 1.8 clocked single core thunderbolt, or i think the thunder was single core ? i cant remember

    what is the difference between the blue, red, green, yellow etc. part of the graph?

    • Chris Nimon

      Each color represents a different part of the test.

  • Edwoordd

    Dude I need to learn how to this ASAP. my Tbolt can last all day on a single charge, I use juicedefender, bobclockD3 & other good apps. So my phone be chillen :)

  • MK17

    Love it! Stuff like this keeps my faith in Android.

  • TWEEKEX

    Oh and for these battery life comments. Mine is off the charger all day (15+ hrs) and I still have 20%+ when I go to bed. Actually use the phone before you post distasteful comments.

      You mad?

    WOOOOOOOT!

      Someone wishes they have an upgrade available

    For those screaming fake I can assure you these are not… I have no reason to create fake Quadrant scores, and those who know me know I would never do so anyways…

    Yes I down-clocked back to 1.5 where it seems to be running pretty smooth with no issues… 1.8 was for fun and to test…

    I ran at 1.8 for about 20 minutes before my battery starting heating up to much… but hey its fun just see that it can do it :-)
