Overclocking, in computer science, indicates a practice aimed at improving the performance of an electronic component of a computer (generally a CPU) by increasing the speed of the clock frequency compared to that provided by the manufacturer, marked on the CPU container .
In the case of CPUs, which are generally referred to for example purposes only, what is altered is the system's internal clock signal, which determines how many cycles of operations the computer CPU must perform in the unit of time. By changing the frequency at which these cycles are performed, in some cases, it is possible to increase or decrease the number of operations per unit of time performed by the component involved.
On a practical level, this is a legal operation, which in the vast majority of cases instantly invalidates the guarantee of the product being handled. L'overclocking it can be carried out in a more or less intense way, but it is generally comparable to modifying the control unit of a motor vehicle so that it reaches maximum performance with the risk of compromising the life of the vehicle itself.

Guide: How to enable GPU overclocking on your Xiaomi
Having made this necessary introduction, today we reveal the fact that some of our beloved Xiaomi smartphones, as well as Redmi, can be overclocked by means of a command that acts on the GPU performance improving game performance. When you enable this mode, you get more FPS in games and general performance that can be "measured" with the usual benchmark made available by AnTuTu. However, know that overclocking generates overheating of the smartphone on which it is enabled, which over time could generate unpleasant situations.
Having said that, we personally have not tested the procedure and therefore we consider ourselves exempt from any unpleasantness that could derive from it. We also remind you that this overclocking mode can only be activated on smartphones equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and / or more recent processors as well as MIUI 11 interface. To enable overclocking proceed as follows:
Access the dialer app;
Type * # * # 8106 # * # *
Nothing could be simpler. Those who say they have tried the procedure have also published the results of the AnTuTu tests obtained with Redmi K20 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 9: hair-raising results. Pto disable it, you just have to repeat the process and you're done .

If you feel like trying the procedure, do not hesitate to let us know if you find benefits or anything else, in order to build a feeback for all other users who want to try their hand at overclocking your device.
Nerd, Geek, Netizen, terms that do not belong to me. Simply myself, technology lover and provocative as Xiaomi does with his products. High quality at fair prices, a real provocation for the other most famous brands.
