You need a unlocked bootloader

And a custom kernel


I recomend
Trinity kernel for general performance
Forzaferrarileo for a great balance

And doomkernel for stability and balance

200mhz 2d
266mhz 3d

As oposed to
266mhz 2d
320mhz 3d

With an OC your ui will become smoother and games will lag less

Also some benchmarking apps prove that you can beat a samsung galaxy s3

There you go.. say thanks to envious_data.. couldn't have explained it better.. Normally the clock for,
2D - 200Mhz
3D - 266Mhz

But we can overclock gpu to obtain,
2D - 266Mhz
3D - 320Mhz

Phone will run with no lag at all.. And it's super smooth.. I haven't tested it's effect on the battery yet though.. I don't actually use it much.. Unless if I want to play Asphalt 8 without lag..

Hope you understood..
Thank me if I helped..

the effect on battery is almost un noticable,

this is because its a small change (as oposed to a cpu oc (much higher frequencys and higher voltages required)
xperia s uses gpu and cpu to display
and finaly most kernels with a gpu oc usualy have a gpu undervolt meaning per frequency step it uses less power as oposed to stock


<(`^)> knowing is good!!!

I get this problem sometimes.. My 2D gpu frequencies cannot be changed.. it might be because of mp-decision but isn't DooMKerneL supposed to have its own mp-decision? if i cant get past this problem, can you give me a link to the latest trinity kernel for Xperia S..? If its not asking for too much..

doomkernel doesent have 2d overclock
doomkernel used the stock mpdecision

also no need for a 2d oc unless you dont like laggy opengl based games
