    Faster loading times, higher framerate.
    It works pretty well, and ive had no issues with it (Luma clock + l2)
    Netflix shows the largest improvement in loading times.
    The pokemon games show the largest improvement in frame rate.

    Here is an in depth look into the overclocking. It shows higher efficiency overall, but lower battery life (Very slim, almost unnoticeable.

    The first game that springs to mind for me is the Donkey Kong game that came out early in the original 3DS's lifecycle which I found unplayable due to it's choppy framerate - anyone tested? would it possibly run at 60fps like the Wii counterpart?

    Baffles me that Nintendo didn't patch pokemon themselves to take advantage of the new CPU, this was the first thing everyone insinuated they would do when the N3DS was announced and here's proof that it would (does!) work.

    Does it fix the Pokémon Battle lag with 3D on?

    I wish the O3DS/2DS was overclockable without a hardmod. :/
