Are you one of those lucky few who managed to get your hands on the Google Nexus 7? If you have answered in the affirmative, then here is one bit of news that you might want to consider following through, if you have the intestinal fortitude, that is. Basically, the Google Nexus 7 comes with a rather zippy NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor which runs at 1.2GHz, although there are other tablets out there which share the same Tegra 3 chipset, albeit coming with a faster 1.6GHz clock speed. There is nothing one cannot fix with a little bit of elbow grease however, where you are now able to overclock your Asus-manufactured Nexus 7 to run at 1.6GHz, thanks to a custom kernel from Xda-developer forum member morfic. His version of the DerKernel Trinity for the Nexus 7 is a custom kernel that enables you to perform an overclocking procedure for the Google Nexus 7.
Obviously, we are looking at your Google Nexus 7 running at 1.6GHz comfortably, and you can also tweak it to run at lower speeds when all you want to do is check your email, in order to further extend the battery life of your device.
