Benchmarking Archos 70 IT 1.2 Ghz overclock


Archos Generation 8 devices run at 800 Mhz by default, they can be changed to 1 000 Mhz in the Power management System settings (Overdrive mode vs Optimal mode). With the help of custom kernel, Urukdroid firmware and SetCPU application (or similar program) it is now possible to overclock the device up to 1200 Mhz.

We have done a few benchmarks on an Archos Generation 8 device to measure the performance on each configuration. The benchmark setup is a Archos 70 IT on default 2.1.8 stock firmware for normal clocking tests and UrukDroid-0.7-kernelOC for Overclocking performance tests. The system was running on power supply with all tasks killed. We ran the same test many times and kept an average value.

Please remember benchmarks are just numbers measuring the raw performance of a device. They do not reflect the stability of the system, and the short or medium term durability. We do not recommend overclocking if you don’t really need it, overclocking make the hardware run at an higher clock rate than it was designed for, it will drain your battery quicker and may reduce your tablets components life.
