  • ARM Cortex-A15 vs. NVIDIA Tegra 3 vs. Intel x86

    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.

  • ARM Cortex-A15 Exynos5 Compiler Benchmarks

    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.

  • Samsung Arndale Board Exynos 5 Dual Benchmarks

    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.

  • Samsung's A15 Chromebook Loaded With Ubuntu Is Crazy Fast

    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.

  • Four-Way ARM Linux Distribution Comparison

    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.

  • Samsung Chromebook (XE303) Review: Testing ARM's Cortex A15

    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.

  • Calxeda ARM Multi-Core Scaling Linux Performance

    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.
     

  • Calxeda ECX-1000 Benchmarks vs. Intel Atom, TI OMAP4

    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.

  • Tests Continue From The 5-Watt Ubuntu ARM 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.

  • Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000 ARM Server

    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.

  • Fedora ARM vs. Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi: Benchmarks

    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.

  • Gentoo Linux vs. Linaro ARM Benchmarks

    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.
     

  • ODROID-X Continues Battling The PandaBoard ES

    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.

  • The ARM Cortex-A9 Can Beat Out The Intel Atom

    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.

  • Linaro 12.08 ARM OMAP4 Performance

    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.

  • Quad-Core ODROID-X Tested Against PlayStation 3

    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 3.5 On The TI OMAP4 PandaBoard ES

    Linux on ARMThe Linux 3.5 kernel for Texas Instruments OMAP4 devices has finally been uploaded into the Quantal repository for Ubuntu 12.10.

  • ARM Wrestling: Fedora 17 vs. Ubuntu Linux

    Linux on ARMWhen it comes to operating systems for the TI OMAP4 PandaBoard and PandaBoard ES, Ubuntu Linux is usually the winner for several reasons. However, with last month's release of Fedora 17 for ARM, how is the Red Hat sponsored distribution running on these ARM development boards? 

  • Building A 96-Core Ubuntu ARM Solar-Powered Cluster

    Linux on ARMLast week I shared results from the Phoronix 12-core ARM Linux mini cluster that was constructed out of six PandaBoard ES development boards. Over the weekend, a 96-core ARM cluster succeeded this build. While packing nearly 100 cores and running Ubuntu Linux, the power consumption was just a bit more than 200 Watts. This array of nearly 100 processor cores was even powered up by a solar panel.
