    Thread 1440p and upscaling

    1440p screens are set to become the next advancement, but could this mean a negative for video consumption? Most high resolution content is 720p (ie YouTube app) with the exception of local media usually 1080p max. Neither of these would be at native resolution on a 1080p screen, thus...

    I've using 1.7GHz for a few days on pegasusq governor but was wondering how much CPU life is affected each clock interval. My guess is the S3 is underclocked at 1.4 because the Note 2 uses the same Exynos 4412 SoC @ 1.6. By logic 1.7 let alone 1.8GHz isn't overkill, provided a stable voltage...
