Right so I posted this in both the kernel thread and the overclock thread but nobody saw it so I'll just post it again:

While looking at the vogue forum, I found a thread about GPU overclocking : the changes made to the kernel to enable this are the following:

Unfortunately I am no programmer and I do not see how to incorporate this code in to kernel sources for MSM7xxxA processors, though it should probably work because the gpus of A and non-A processors are pretty much the same (same basic specs such as number of triangles etc.), so if a kernel dev. could try to integrate this patch, that would be awesome.

Even though its a good idea in theory..
Once you start over clocking the GOS you really gona kill not only battery life, but your phone will be able to cook eggs lol

Re: GPU Overclock possibility
Thanks kingklick, hopefully you'll figure it out so we can run newer 3D games better, as for overheating, dzo (who created this modification) says that he hasn't noticed anything differences in temperature after overclocking the GPU on the Vogue

It will be cool if someone can overclock the GPU , these days everybody is talking about overclocking the cpu , but what allot of people do when they are traveling is playing games, some games we cant play because they are a little bit to heavy for the GPU. Kingklick thanks for looking at this topic,
personally I have really much confidence in you!

For this to work.

Someone has to implement this for MSM72XX, which is completely different than what's in the TI phones.

I am not sure if that code is even in the kernel (GPU clock). I don't recall seeing it but I haven't really looked at the kernel all that much.

It's all in the board files if it's anywhere.

Are you sure it's safe to OC the GPU?
It's not like we're using a adreno or Power VR in these phones. Also doesn't android use the CPU for things like scrolling,animations,swiping,etc...
