    Hi all, i'm not sure i'm posting this in the relevant section, so mods please amend this if it is in the wrong section. Thanks.

    Does increasing (overclocking?) the speed of the cpu of the 2nd gen 1ghz phones (htc desire hd for example, with the adreno 205 gpu) increase the FPS and or improve general performance when playing graphic heavy games (like dungeon defenders, reckless racing, and modern combat sandstorm) on the device? or would the gpu have to be improved separately in some way to gain any benefits when playing games?

    Thanks

    Ian

    Typically it does, but only to a certain degree. When I tested my Nexus One on Neocore with no tweaks, I get about 26 FPS. With my CPU overclocked from 1 GHz to 1.113 GHz, it improved to 31.6 FPS. It won't be much, so I wouldn't overclock just for that. Of course, that's only 113 MHz boost of mine compared to the second gen Snapdragons that can get a boost of around 500 to 600 MHz safely.
