The stock Nexus 7 peaks at a 1.3GHz clock speed when it’s at full burn. That’s certainly good enough for the $199 price tag, but eager adopters have just hit a new record in trying to wring out even more of a bang for the buck. Courtesy of a custom Elite kernel from XDA-Developers‘ Clemsyn, the Tegra 3 in the mini tablet will scale all the way to a heady 2GHz. You’d be right in suspecting that it leads to some dramatic speed boosts: the Nexus 7 at this pace can put a Transformer Prime to shame in common benchmarks, let alone most smartphones. Reaching the loftier heights of performance does require nerves of steel, however. The Elite kernel is very much a rough build that the creator doesn’t yet trust with the public, and NVIDIA’s processor is already known to get toasty under significantly added stress. There’s hope a refined kernel will make for a safer venture into unknown territory. If you can’t wait to throw at least some caution (and the warranty) to the wind, though, hit the second source link for code that will reach a slightly less melt-prone 1.8GHz.
We recently heard that the CyanogenMod team are working on CyanogenMod 10, which is based on the latest version of Google’s mobile and tablet OS, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The guys behind CyanogenMod 10 have been working on their new release for a few weeks, and whilst there is no official release as yet for the Google Nexus 7 one developer, winner00 has ported CyanogenMod 10 to the Google Nexus 7.
You can find out more details about the CyanogenMod 10 port for the Google Nexus 7 over at the XDA Developer forums.
Google’s Nexus 7 tablet is expected to land in retail stores some time this week or next week, but for those people who attended Google’s I/O developer conference and got one of the Nexus 7 tablet, Google has released a new software update for the device.
The update is Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, and it was released as an OTA update for the device with a size of 12.6MB, the update seems to include a range of bug fixes.
As a reminder Google Nexus 7 features a 7 inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, processing is provided by a quad core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and it also features a 12 core GPU.
No doubt the update will be available for the Google Nexus 7 as soon as the device goes on sale, as soon as we find otu exactly when it will be available we will let you guys know.
