this is great..possibly..is there any app we can use to know the frequency of the gpu? i tried a couple but they could see a thing..anyway this would be a breakthrough for gaming in mk6589
You think nothing changed or you know nothing changed. AFAIK if you altered the PLL value you DID in fact OC your processor. The point is the traditional ways of checking (check value reported in shell/some app etc) would still indicate the old values. They are numbers written in the kernel. Nothing else.
The way to check would be to lock the device to the top frequency and run a benchmark of some variety several times and average the results. Then change the PLL value and run the benchmark again. Then compare the results. If they are higher, then you have just OC'd your mt6589.
This would not persist over a reboot as the PLL values are set by the kernel at every boot.
Unfortunately we cannot OC the GPU separatly until a working mt6589 kernel has been compiled as it runs from the same PLL.
Who has the balls to be the first mt6589 overclocker?
