Linux on ARMWith Linux 4 Tegra R16 now having an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (hardfp) sample file-system and the R16 drivers supporting ARM hard floating-point as the preferred format over softfp, new Tegra 3 "Cardhu" tablet benchmarks were carried out to look at the performance between L4T R16 + Ubuntu 12.04 vs. L4T R15 + Ubuntu 11.04.

Up until recently, NVIDIA was promoting its soft floating-point binaries and the Linux sample file-system offered through their developer area was an Ubuntu 11.04 image being built for softfp. Fortunately, with the Release 16 series, it's all about hardfp and it's using the newer Ubuntu 12.04 LTS packages. From the Tegra 3 Cardhu tablet that NVIDIA sent over some time ago, I carried out a couple benchmarks comparing the new and old of Linux For Tegra.
