    Glad you mention it. I was looking for a clear indication but could not find any. It's ok. Thanks a lot for the info.

    I can't quite follow the conclusions though. Judging by the results, both 12.04 "unfixed" and 11.10 ran the cpu at around ~750Mhz (mostly going by byte benchmark which should scale linearly with clock probably). It looks like hardfp improved some benchmarks somewhat, but the clock impact is much much bigger (well hardfp doesn't affect benchmarks not using floats...).
    I agree though with what others were saying, a new comparison against atom (and bobcat) would be nice.
