Yes, I know nobody with AMD will read this
Side note, AMD guys, where is all the hardware based on the Z-01, C-60 and E-450? These refined versions of the Bobcat series APUs should be taking the low end market by storm by now since they where launched months ago! Furthermore, why can't I find a high end gaming laptop thats all AMD? For years the best AMD mobile CPUs where paired with no better then an HD*670 GPU, why is there never even an all AMD desktop replacement laptop with a top end mobile GPU like the HD6990m?
(Before I got a hosts file, phoronix was almost unusable without switching to xlinks2--once I clicked a link to phoronix, waited ~5 minutes, went and ate dinner, came back, and waited a few more minutes for it to finish loading --in case you're wondering why it takes so long, the CPU is an Atom N270 that spends most of the time at 800 MHz, in an Aspire One)
Thank you for the interesting article, its great to have some ARM benchmarks! I'd love to see more ARM coverage on Phoronix. Another system you could benchmark would be the Beagleboard and of course the Raspberry Pi (when its released).
BTW.. contgrats on making the frontpage of Slashdot on this article!!
Well, that does mean it uses hand-optimized assembler code on x86, but not on ARM, right?the x264 benchmark, in the stock configuration
Also, it's understandable that power consumption tests are quite difficult with such different hardware, but then maybe such conclusions should be a bit more cautious:
I think it is very competitive: If it uses less than half the power of the Atom then just throw two more ARM cores in and there you have the competitive CPU, at least for multithreaded use cases.While this dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 platform was generally not competitive with the Intel Atom hardware[...]
