I'm a bit surprised to see the idle power so high. I thought these things idled at like zero watts. I guess it depends on the governor of course.
i imagine Michael is using a monster hard drive to boot and run the tests and so drawing that 4watts just with that drive connected and running or his power meters crap OC or maybe the PandaBoard ES design is less than optimal ,it was primarily for development when it was released after all.
Some regressions, but also some very impressive performance improvements which are twice as fast!
How about ARMv8 (64-bit) support?
the Linaro membership do have some ARMv8 sample/dev boards ready and are working some patches but don't expect to see them any time soon as its mostly server related patches etc right now as i understand it, its not like you can buy any ARM v8 kit until next year or perhaps late December at best anyway.
