  • Linux on ARMThe latest ARM Cortex-A15 benchmarks on Phoronix is an extension of the earlier compiler testing from this modern ARM CPU found on the Samsung Exynos 5 Dual within the Samsung Chromebook. In this round of performance testing, the LLVM/Clang compiler performance is compared to recent releases of the GNU Compiler Collection on this latest-generation ARM hardware.

  • 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.

  • Linux on ARMLast week I shared some early benchmarks of the Samsung Chromebook while running Ubuntu Linux. The Samsung Chromebook is very interesting since it's one of the few readily available computers on the market employing an ARM Cortex-A15 processor rather than Cortex-A9 or other models.

  • Android-x86Due 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.

  • Linux on ARMThe Arndale Board is a dual-core ARMv7 development board built around the Exynos 5 Dual SoC, which features the new ARM Cortex-A15. As shown in yesterday's Samsung Chromebook benchmarks on Linux, the Exynos 5 Dual packs very good performance for being a low-power ARM chip.

  • 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.

  • Linux on ARMThe latest ARM Linux benchmarks to share at Phoronix is a comparison of Ubuntu 12.10, Linaro 12.10, Fedora 17, and Arch Linux when running from the dual-core Cortex-A9 OMAP4460-based PandaBoard ES development board.

  • Linux on ARMGoogle announced the Chrome OS project two years ago, and with it came the first Chromebook: the CR-48. The Chrome OS concept seemed revolutionary at the time. In 2010 we were well into the latest round of questioning whether today's PCs were fast enough. The Ultrabook revolution hadn't yet begun, and the iPad was starting to gain momentum.

  • Linux on ARMAfter delivering some AMD Vishera multi-core scaling benchmarks for reference on Saturday, here's some similar tests conducted from a Calxeda ECX-1000 quad-core ARM server node.
     

  • Linux on ARMLast week I began delivering benchmarks of the low-power yet massively scalable Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000 ARM Server and followed the initial tests with some ARM compiler benchmarks and other benchmarks from this 5-Watt Linux Server.

  • Linux on ARMAfter yesterday publishing the first extensive benchmark results for the Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000 ARM Servers in the form of the 1.1GHz and 1.4GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 nodes running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Ubuntu 12.10, here are more benchmarks to share today from the "5-Watt ARM Server" on Linux.

  • Linux on ARMEarlier this month I was down in Texas visiting the Calxeda office where for the past four years they have been busy trying to revolutionize the server market through ultra-low power ARM-based servers. This morning one of their partners, Boston Limited, is formally launching their energy-efficient "Viridis" server built around Calxeda's EnergyCore ECX-1000 hardware. In this article are the first of some public Calxeda ARM benchmarks on Ubuntu Linux while more results will be out in the coming days.

  • Linux on ARMUsing the Fedora ARM remix on the raspberry Pi, I couldn't help but noticing how slow it was. I thought it was due to the Pi's weak hardware, but since I accidentally corrupted my root filesystem on the Pi, I decided to try Raspbian for  a change.

  • Linux on ARMThe latest Linux ARM benchmarks at Phoronix are comparing the performance of Gentoo Linux against Linaro 12.08 from a 1.4GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 development board.
     

  • Linux on ARMHere's the latest benchmarks of the low-cost ODROID-X, a $129 quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 development board out of Korea with ARM Mali 400 graphics. For just $129 USD, the ODROID-X development board is very interesting with packing Samsung's quad-core Exynos 4412 ARM Cortex-A9 processors running at 1.4GHz per core, Mali-400 MP Core graphics, six USB 2.0 ports, 10/100 Ethernet, and support for running Android and/or Ubuntu/Linaro.

  • Linux on ARMHere's some interesting test results recently uploaded to OpenBenchmarking.org that compares the performance of ARM Cortex A8 and Cortex A9 cores running at 1.0GHz against an Intel Atom N450. All three systems running at 1.0GHz were also running Gentoo Linux. Clock-for-clock, can the latest-generation ARM Cortex-A9 take out the Intel Atom? For the most part, yes.

  • Linux on ARMThe Linaro organization offers monthly builds of Android and Ubuntu for their member SoC vendors, but are these Linaro-optimized Ubuntu builds any faster than the normal Ubuntu for ARM images? Here are some benchmarks of Linaro 12.08 compared to recent upstream Ubuntu Linux releases.

  • Linux on ARMHere are some more benchmarks of the ODROID-X, a $129 ARMv7 development board that packs four Cortex-A9 cores along with Mali-400 graphics to provide a fairly impressive punch. There's even some comparative numbers to a Sony PlayStation 3 running Linux.

  • Linux on ARMThe Linux 3.5 kernel for Texas Instruments OMAP4 devices has finally been uploaded into the Quantal repository for Ubuntu 12.10. With the upgraded kernel release, here are some new benchmarks of the popular PandaBoard ES compared to earlier Ubuntu 12.10 development snapshots, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 11.10 from the dual-core Cortex-A9 ARMv7 development hardware.

  • Linux on ARMBack in June there were Calxeda's ARM Highbank performance claims of delivering 15x performance-per-Watt superior performance to Intel's Xeon x86 processor. At long last, independent benchmarks of a quad-core Calxeda Highbank board are beginning to surface.
