Overclocked Palm Pre Crosses 1GHz

Palm Pre overclock 1GHzGLOBAL – Hackers attempting to overclock the Palm Pre have finally been able to push the limits of the device beyond what was possible.

The Palm Pre has finally been pushed over the 1GHz barrier. The device, which runs on the OMAP3430 chip, is originally clocked at 600MHz. The custom kernel of the device is named “F105Thunderbird”; the ┬áhacker cautions that it is extremely dangerous to install this onto the device.

This is not the first time that the Palm Pre has been overclocked, but all previous attempts topped out at 800MHz. Installing the custom kernel takes a massive hit on the battery life as the processor is working on a much higher clockspeed than it was meant to be. It is also important to know that installing this results in voiding the warranty. Overclocking the device also runs in generation of a large amount of heat and will damage the delicate silicon circuitry in the device.

Palm was bought earlier this year by electronics giant HP following a struggle for financing. The latter company has hinted that it will mainly use Palm’s webOS software platform for its HP tablets, and not to completely dive in the smartphone business.
