Disabling a core while overclocking the other?
Monday 29th of July 2013
Hello, I recently bough a Coby 7065 and have been terribly disappointed with it. I have an Xperia Play and looking at the specs of the Coby I assumed it would offer superior gaming for the newer emulation options available but everything I throw at it runs slower than it would on my Play. I failed to account for how few apps (especially emulators) are actually optimized to use both cores. I also know that the am8726-mx chip is prone to overheating (simple web browsing makes my palms sweat) so standard overclocking is completely out of the question especially since I live in Florida. So, could I disable one core and overclock the other? Or, if that is not an option would I see gains from using SetCpu and leaving one processor at 200mhz max while overclocking the other? I'd assume that doing so would boost my performance in emulation while possibly even saving me battery life (~3 hours on the tablet sadly). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
