Xoom overclocked to 1.5GHz

Just this past Friday, one day after the Motorola Xoom was officially released, instructions on how to root your shiny new tablet were already posted online. It only took one weekend and some hard work from coolbho3000, the developer behind the famous SetCPU, to get the Xoom up and running at 1.5GHz and stable.

As you can see in the video above, the benchmarks are certainly impressive. Linpack scores total around 46 mflops, up from 36 at stock, and Quadrant scores land round 3000. Of course benchmarks don’t mean everything, but coolbho3000 is sure to mention that real life use shows a solid increase in performance.

If you’d like to learn more, XDA has a thread that features instructions as well as the source code for the OC.

Show of hands, how many of you have rooted your Xoom? Be sure to let us know in the comments.
