“Earlier today, ZDNet.de released a tool that looks very promising in [regard to overclocking]. According to their website, the tool can currently overclock Mac Pros and Xserves with Intel Xeon processors. They use the example of taking a base model Mac Pro running at 2.8 GHz and getting it to run faster than Apple’s top of the line 3.2 GHz machines,” Seth Weintraub reports for Computerworld.
“This tool not only increases the processor speed, but it also speeds up the memory and bus speed as well. Thankfully, Mac Pros and Xserves have error correcting RAM which should help with reliability at these higher speeds,” Weintraub reports.
“Since this is a software overclocking tool, it doesn’t pose too much of a risk, but as always in this arena, proceed with caution and I am not responsible for imploding machines. Bugs in clock time have been reported but fixes are coming. To go back to your old clock speed, you’ll just need to reboot,” Weintraub reports.
