Asus Eee Pad Transformer 40% Higher Speeds Reached

Since the beginning of this year, news of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer seems to come and go. Although an impressive piece of kit, it perhaps doesn’t get the recognition it quite rightly deserves. In the past few weeks, we have brought you news about its specs, release date, price, battery comparison to the popular iPad 2 and so on. Just at the start of this month, it seems that Asus were struggling to keep up with the demand of the Transformer.

Today Phones Review have reported how the Transformer has been overclocked, therefore upping the performance speeds to a much higher 1.4GHz instead of the included 1GHz. This has been carried out by the guys over at the XDA Developers forum which managed to use a custom kernel allowing the speeds to be upped.

As nexus404.com pointed out, that once you have chosen the path to root your device, and the required software is installed, it could invalidate your warranty and so on.

But if you do decide to go ahead, the speeds for the Transformer could then be increased by at least 40%, although it has been reported that the device’s performance may feel unstable, but this can be equalled out to 1.2GHz to give a feeling of balance.

Is this something you would consider doing? Can you actually see the point of overclocking your device? Let us know the outcome if you decide to try it out.
