  • Mecool VS-RK3399 Board Linux Benchmarks

    Linux on ARMI’ve just showed how to install Debian, and build a Linux image from source on VS-RD-RK3399 board (akak Mecool VS-RK3399) last week-end, but at the time I did not run any benchmarks on the board. We already have plenty of benchmarks for Rockchip RK3399 in Android, so instead I started by installing the latest Phoronix Test Suite in Debian:

  • ASUS Tinker Board Is An Interesting ARM SBC For About $60 USD

    Linux on ARMEarlier this year ASUS announced the Tinker Board as their first step into the ARM single board computer world. Earlier this month I finally received a Tinker Board for testing and it has been quite interesting to say the least. The Tinker Board with its Rockchip SoC has been among the most competitive ARM SBCs we have tested to date in its price range and the form factor is compatible with the Raspberry Pi.

  • Hard float VS soft float with Slackware ARM on the RPi 3

  • Benchmarks Of Many ARM Boards From The Raspberry Pi To NVIDIA Jetson TX2

    Linux on ARMFor some weekend benchmarking fun, I compared the Jetson TX2 that NVIDIA released this weekend with their ARM 64-bit "Denver 2" CPU cores paired with four Cortex-A57 cores to various other ARM single board computers I have access to. This is looking at the CPU performance in different benchmarks ranging from cheap ~$10 ARM SBCs to the Raspberry Pi to the Jetson TX1 and Jetson TX2.

  • Hands-on with the Orange Pi One quad-core Linux SBC

    Linux on ARMIn this brief hands-on review, Ben Martin takes the low cost, quad-core Orange Pi One hacker SBC for a spin, and benchmarks the board’s performance.

  • On the Performance of ARM Virtualization

    Linux on ARMARM servers are becoming increasingly common, making server technologies such as virtualization for ARM of growing importance. We present the first study of ARM virtualization performance on server hardware, including multi- core measurements of two popular ARM and x86 hypervisors, KVM and Xen. We show how ARM hardware support for virtualization can enable much faster transitions between VMs and the hypervisor, a key hypervisor operation.

  • Linux Benchmarks On Ten Popular ARM Boards

  • $10 Orange Pi One Linux Benchmarks Against The Raspberry Pi & Other ARM Boards

    Linux on ARMThe folks at LoveRPi.com recently sent over an Orange Pi One when they had also sent over the ODROID-C2 $40 64-bit ARM development board for review. Here are some benchmarks of the Orange Pi One compared to several other ARM boards.

  • Benchmarking The Low-Cost PINE 64+ ARM Single Board Computer

    Linux on ARMAs an alternative to the Raspberry Pi 3 for a low-cost 64-bit ARM (AArch64) development board is the PINE 64, which was successfully Kickstarted as a "$15 64-bit single board super computer" that generated more than 1.7 million dollars. The PINE 64 is still shipping out in limited quantities for now, but the folks behind this project were kind enough to send over a sample of their PINE 64 1GB SBC for some benchmarking.

  • Raspberry Pi 3 Benchmarks vs. Eight Other ARM Linux Boards

    Linux on ARMOn Friday my Raspberry Pi 3 arrived for benchmarking. For our first benchmarks of this Cortex-A53 64-bit ARM $35 development board is a comparison against eight other ARMv7 and ARMv8 development boards running their official Linux distributions while carrying out a range of benchmarks. Here are those raw performance results along with a performance-per-dollar comparison for additional insight into this low-cost ARM development board.

  • Benchmarks Of The ODROID-C2 64-Bit ARM Development Board

    Linux on ARMEarlier this month Hardkernel announced the ODROID-C2 as a 64-bit ARM development board that would begin shipping in March. Fortunately, you don't need to wait until next month to find out how this $40 USD 64-bit ARM development board is performing: here are some benchmarks.

  • Chromium OS for Raspberry Pi 2 Gets 8% Overall Performance Increase
