Retina-Class iFive Mini 3 Overclocked

iambillbil is still locking his post [Google Translate] but the conclusion has been altered. Apparently he’s since edited the post with new — and still locked — information.

He’s applied an overclocking patch and reports:

1 overclocked to patch a 1.6g 1.7g,

533 graphics card overclocked to 666,

Memory 312mhz overclocked to 360mhz,

Became effective bandwidth from 4.9g 5.4g,

1.2 times the effective performance,

Run points from 1.82 ten thousand raised to 20,200 early

(At this time basically stable, did not see who said something wrong, this time 2d game has been elevated from 17fps to 20fps,

So the AnTuTu score increased from 18,200 to 20,200.

Second overclocking:

2 patch two overclocked to 1.6g 1.8g,

533 graphics card overclocked to 799,

Memory 312mhz overclocked to 360mhz,

Became effective bandwidth from 4.9g 5.4g,

1.4 times the effective performance,

Run from 18,200 points to 22,500 early upgrade early

But there are several people posting said, will randomly reboot and crashes. But very occasionally, infrequently
(2d game this time has increased from 17fps to 23fps, and 3188 +1920 basically the same performance.)

AnTuTu score increased from 18,200 to 22,500.

So the CPU, GPU, and RAM can all be overclocked.

Overclocking was mentioned in the 5Fans forum a few days ago and he decided to investigate it for himself.

Too bad he’s not sharing it with the entire world!

Note that overclocking will decrease battery life and might also shorten the life of components due to increased heat.

In the end, he doesn’t seem enthusiastic about the Retina-class iFive Mini 3. In the thread, he tells someone it’s worth waiting for tablets with Retina-class displays driven by the upcoming octa-core MediaTek 8135 CPU!

The MediaTek 8135 is mistakenly referred to as a quad-core CPU in this LaptopMag post from which I’ve borrowed this AnTuTu score image:

    Hi,
    I own a IFive mini 3 Retina for one week now.
    I changed the ROM to kasty-fnf_ifive_mini3_retina-442-210_20140307-rooted4_mu and applied the overclocked kernel (OC kernel for mini3HD(2.1.0) by pg-fdz@mobile01). Very easy to patch and upgrade.
    I used the first OC (1704mhz) and didn’t report any trouble, crash or reboot. Antutu : 20988
    I changed the launcher for Nova, changed the density to 240 or 280 (240 is good but sometimes too small, and I experienced a strange behavior in the Google Keyboard, 280 gives me a good compromise)
    The general responsiveness is very good, I am not a gamer, but I tried Collin Mc Ray, and other 3D games without any lags.
    I can compare to my Nexus 5, and I can say until now it worth the price.
    The only concern so far, is the Page Flipping 3D effect of ezPDF is very slow compared to the nexus. I had to disable it. Pretty sure it a ezPDF slow algorithm because the same effect in Moon Reader Pro is excellent.
    Probably this tablet could benefit of a better CPU, but for now and for 180$ I can recommend it.
    Regards..
    Dun

    If you want a PDF viewer with a good page flipping animation try the app called “Sidebooks” it is quite fast.

    • Dun

      You are right, very fast flipping animation and good for reading.
      But it do not show any of my annotations (hightlights / texts etc…) and only let you draw notes with a virtual pen.
      I keep it in my list for reading only. Thanks.

  3. Here you can see pdf test, without OC:

  4. And here with normal pdfs

    Thanks for all your info about this tablet ;)
