Some Nvidia partners famous for overclocking graphics cards are considering overclocking tablets. We wrote that overclocking phones has already become a trend and some people want to ride that wave. The story is here.

For example, Tegra 2 can run up to 1.5GHz with a minor voltage adjustment. While it will wear your battery down a bit faster, people appreciate the speed bump they get. The same goes for tablet overclocking, the principle on Android OS is identical.

We knew that this is going to happen sooner or later, and we are quite sure that people will ask for a small premium to sell you an overclocked tablet. You can expect to see some Nvidia partners coming up with this, solely to differentiate their products in the increasingly crowded Android tablet market.

Initial talks have already taken place, and it’s just a matter of time. We are quite sure that some of them will ship well before Xmas shopping spree, and we will keep our eyes peeled for them.
