So after a year of waiting (or so), we have two kernels enabling overclocking to 946.808mhz on the Optimus Q and Optimus Slider. A little insight into our processor: our processor comes off the factory line @ 600mhz. It's then overclocked to 800mhz for our devices. Previous attempts at overclocking have run into many stability issues @ anything greater than 850mhz. Thanks to the work of Kato, RHG, DrewWalton and DroidHost we're now running both phones in beta @946.808mhz. This is a 346.808mhz jump from what these processors were originally designed to run at! In beta testing we've seen very little issues and are seeing antutu benchmarks holding in the 1900+ range (some as high as ~2000). This is a marked improvement. We're also seeing an increase in fps both in 2d and 3d. If all continues to go well you can look forward to an overclocked kernel in future releases of AreaRom for both the Q and Slider. Stay tuned!

I might go back to the slider if this works. Have to replace the screen first, though.

It works but the 946mhz kernel doesn't get as good of benchmarks as the 876mhz kernel we have. The 946mhz kernel by koush, droidhost, rhg is getting mid 1900s and the 876mhz kernel is getting mid 2000s. Ie 1940 and 2040 respectively.

Lol I can't believe we've pushed these devices to 2000 antutu benchmarks. With jit, some v6 tweaks, proper zipaligning and optimization with the new kernels we've gone from 1600 to 2000. Its cool seeing your processor @ 946.808 but I think I'm gonna go with the 876.8 kernel in the next arearomq and slider releases. Ill be honest with you all though. I've not yet gotten going on arearomslider. AreaRomQ is my pet project and since its my phone (that and an htc g1 and samsung galaxy s 4g) its my main project at the moment. Be prepared to see arearomq v2.1 very soon.
