Overclocking does not improve the Performance



  • Hey Guys,
    i overclocked my Raspberry Pi3 (latest Recalbox version) by putting the following lines in the boot.config

    arm_freq=1400
    over_voltage=4
    sdram_freq=575
    sdram_schmoo=0x02000020
    over_voltage_sdram_p=6
    over_voltage_sdram_i=4
    over_voltage_sdram_c=4
    core_freq=500
    v3d_freq=500
    h264_freq=333
    gpu_mem=256
    force_turbo=1
    dtparam=sd_overclock=100

    I removed the preset gpu_mem from the boot.config.

    Note: I have passive AND active cooling and i'm aware of the fact that force_turbo=1 will void my warranty.

    However, i did this to have a few more FPS while playing PSX games or in order to play PSX games with a higher resolution. I did not check the actual FPS (is there a tool for that)?

    I can't see any subjective improvement while playing the games. Does anyone have an idea why that is?

    Best regards
    Eomer

    I recently added a fan to my Pi and thinking of overclocking. Did you ever end up seeing a difference or did overclocking do nothing for you? Thanks!



  • @Eomer

    What do you mean by "boot.config" ???

    You must edit your config.txt, not a other file (and put permissions because this file is RO)

    For me i just edit config.txt with this values (from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3B3AnuOmRcQ) and it's great !

    arm_freq=1400
    over_voltage=4
    gpu_freq=450



  • @Pho3nX , this settings works on RPI2 ?

    No it's only for PI3, method is the same on PI2 but not the same values
