I had to shut down Chromium and KDE to get the memory needed, but here are the benchmarks for high and ultra settings. These were found using the-big-benchmark timed demos and xinit. These are nearly double the J1900 results.On "low" detail settings, the TK1 runs 83FPS average compared to 63FPS on the J1900 @ 2.9GHz, or about 32% faster. While the J1900 claims 10W TDP @ 2.0 GHz, I'm guessing we are seeing more than that for a 33% boost in clock (13.3W?). The TK1 shows < 5W for SOC + RAM. It also beats all the recent AMD AM1 25W TDP chips while pushing 2.5x the number of pixels (1920x1080 vs 1024x768)! Assuming these tests are comparable to the Phoronix setup, that's very impressive!
High: 17/42/60 - low/avg/high
Ultra: 06/29/47 - low/avg/high
High detail is very playable. Ultra, not so much. Maybe at 720p. I think another 1GB would provide some much needed headroom, and might improve these scores. I'm done benchmarking at least for the day.
Since some folks don't think that dropping to 720p (40% of the pixels) makes much difference, I might post those results for Mom. But that's it for tonight.
