Phoronix: ARM Cortex-A15 Exynos5 Compiler Benchmarks
Due to there being much interest in the ARM Cortex A15 benchmarks on Linux, namely with the Samsung Chromebook and its Samsung Exynos 5 Dual, here's a weekend special providing some GCC compiler benchmarks of this new ARM chip.
Please consider adding "-mfpu=neon -marm -mtune=cortex-a15" to compile flags when running tests:
-mfpu=neon will enable use of NEON SIMD unit (similar to SSE on x86). Ubuntu defaults don't have NEON enabled to support Tegra2 that lacks it, which also results in only half float registers being available.
-marm will generate ARM code instead of Thumb2, which may result in better performance
