Consumer 0-BLANK-0 over at Reddit has shared a screenshot of their PS4 operating the Unigine Heaven Benchmark, with the (Slim) console’s CPU overclocked at 2.4GHz.
PS4 Slim operating at 150% clock pace
The bottom PS4’s CPU sometimes runs at 1.6GHz, with the PS4 Professional operating at 2GHz. On their screenshot, the tinkerer explains that they’ve managed to overclock their PS4 Slim to 2.4GHz, and run the Unigine Heaven Benchmark, a reference specifically for Linux customers. It is a 50% enhance of the clock pace which is fairly large, however folks appear to say the PS4 can deal with it (we are able to’t vouch for that, strive at your personal danger)
Displaying a rating of 1245 within the benchmark, it seems the overclocked PS4 slim will get a reasonably good consequence contemplating its launch date of 2013, sitting near the scores of some mid-to-excessive finish Graphics playing cards of the time: From what now we have discovered, people operating Unigine Heaven with the identical settings again within the day might obtain a rating of roughly 1000 with a GTX 760, and 1500 with a GTX 770. The PS4 GPU is a customized AMD one, however has been stated to be roughly equal to a GTX 750 Ti (a Graphics card considerably slower than the GTX 760). So it might appear the overclocking helps considerably within the benchmark.
In fact there are a lot of elements at play, and particular person benchmark outcomes can fluctuate rather a lot relying on CPU, RAM, and many others… So an apples to apples comparability is virtually unimaginable. It might actually be fascinating to see the identical Benchmark being run with out Overclocking.
Overclocking the PS4 – The way it’s accomplished
The trick which isn’t actually one, is that you must have a Jailbroken PS4, operating Linux. The kernel information (particularly /arch/x86/embrace/asm/ps4.h) should be modified earlier than compiling an “overclocked” model of Linux operating in your PS4.
There are many guides on the market on tips on how to run Linux in your PS4, however you’ll want a Jailbroken PS4 to put in Linux.
You’ll be able to obtain the Unigine Heaven Benchmark right here. My “Gaming” desktop’s rating (with the identical settings as proven on the screenshot) is 1475. My machine’s fairly outdated (it was superior in 2014…?) however from my perspective it shows the PS4 nonetheless has life in it.
Final however not least, overclocking the PS4 with Linux will not maintain it in “overclocked” state once you reboot to the PS4 OS. Sorry for individuals who thought they might run God Of Struggle like they have been on their PS5 or one thing 🙂
