    Default Running ARM Linux Benchmarks On The HP TouchPad

    Phoronix: Running ARM Linux Benchmarks On The HP TouchPad

    While Hewlett-Packard recently announced they will be killing off their webOS devices, just days prior to that I had ordered an HP TouchPad 16GB to carry out some additional ARM-based Linux benchmarks. Although HP's devices may be going away, I am still fond of webOS and it's a fair environment to carry out performance tests.

    Default Tegra2

    There are some Tegra2 benchmarks on openbenchmarking run under Ubuntu. If you want some additional data, I could try to run those (an AC100, Ubuntu Natty, 2.6.37 kernel, on external SD card so HDD-dependent benchmarks not so good/informative)

    EDIT: I have killed Android on the system so I can not compare to its native OS if phoronix would develop support for it. Otherwise I think that will be quite interesting: comparing a glibc-based "normal" GNU/Linux with the bionic-based Android (can php be compiled with bionic?).

    a followup on my previous edit: anyone compared coretutils-based "normal" distros with busybox-based ones (for example TinyCore, Sabotage or Aboriginal) with Phoronix using comparable hardware and settings?

    Huh, cache writes under Atom really must suck to lose to a slower ARM.

    @staalmannen:

    busybox shouldn't matter to PTS, the tests don't (usually) call the utils, they do their own things directly. If you tested for example grep directly, bb would lose, as it is optimized for size instead of speed - I believe bb grep is a simple loop, while GNU grep has sophisticated algorithms (can't recall the names).

    I managed to get a few Touchpads for family and friends. There are some replacement kernels that allow overclocking the Snapdragon up to 1.9Ghz. It would be interesting to see some benchmarks on how clocks scale to performance.

    I think HP is crazy getting out of the market as they have one of the better tablets. People are just not buying as the price is too high and people feel the tablets are too restricted. Companies need to allow people to flash the devices to suit their needs.
