Linux on ARMGoogle recently launched the Samsung Chromebook that for $249 USD features an 11-inch display, a 16GB SSD, a promise of 6.5-hour battery life, and is backed by a Samsung Exynos 5 SoC. The Samsung Exynos 5 packs a 1.7GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor with ARM Mali-T604 graphics.

With using this new ARM Cortex-A15 chip plus the Samsung Chromebook not being locked down so it can be loaded up with a Linux distribution like Ubuntu or openSUSE, it was a must-buy for carrying out some interesting Cortex-A15 Linux benchmarks. The Exynos 5 Dual in this affordable laptop packs an impressive performance punch.

I'm still in the process of setting up Ubuntu on the Samsung Chromebook for delivering Linux ARM Cortex A15 performance benchmarks, but already someone beat me to using the Phoronix Test Suite for carrying out benchmarks of the ARM A15. The results were shared via OpenBenchmarking.org.
