We are waiting forse gpu guide
Unfortunately my cpu is unstable with high undervolt, i set it to -50 and works great w/o overclock i think it's useless

Give the cpu voltage settings in my sig a try, to be in the safer side always start with +25mv from my signature

It depends on the type of app and the initial load required, it's normal afaik

It depends on the app its not an strange act, if the app requires a lot of cpu usage it will stay longer on the max frequency, if you dont like that you can always try an lazy cpu scaling governor (controls the behaviour of the cpu)

Edit: lol bala gamer was earlier np xd

Ohk. In my case it reaches for every app.
What about threshhold setting???

I try CPU : 1500mhz -50mV
GPU : 266 - 350 - 440 - 533 - 600 with mv 875 - 925 - 975 - 1025 - 1075

Nenamark2 : 54,2
Basemark Taiji : 40,48

It's a little low... ?

Is 600 kicking in? I've never tried this benchmark but maybe you could try lowering your threshold frequencies.

lowered the threshold frequencies to (DOWN UP) 70 - 60 85 - 85 80 - 90 80 - 95

I restart my s3, then test the two benchmark a first time with mali status to see if it goes at 600 and then without mali status.

edit : don't know if it is mali status or stweaks/kernel problem,
but mali status shows me at reboot 160mhz whereas my minimum is 2** in stweaks
and now, after try nenamark a first time, it keeps showing 440mhz while im not using any special apps, the gpu usage under 5% and therefore it should have a lower frequencie

Can u give a link to download the mali gpu status app please ? Have found the app with Google after searching 10mn and maybe have a problem...
