CompuLab Trim-Slice: Dual-Core ARM Tegra 2 Desktop

The SciMark performance for the stock Trim-Slice was also competitive.

For Smallpt, another test almost as demanding as C-Ray, the Trim-Slice performance was nearly on par with the N270/Z530 Atom systems.

Hopefully these initial benchmarks provide some reference for the level of performance you can expect out of the CompuLab Trim-Slice or similar NVIDIA Tegra 2 systems. While it is one of the few ARM-powered desktops that is readily available, the price is not too bad. CompuLab offers a barebone 1GB system for $213 USD, the Trim-Slice H250 (similar configuration to this review sample) for $338, or $325 for a model with a 32GB SATA SSD. It is more expensive than the PandaBoard ES and similar development boards, but this is a ready PC shipping with Ubuntu ARM, has four USB ports, 802.11n WiFi, and SATA support.

Expect more benchmarks of the Trim-Slice in the near future, including results when all of the ARM hardware is upgraded against the latest Ubuntu stack (where the PandaBoard ES is also better supported), NVIDIA Tegra 2 graphics GLES2.0 benchmarks, and other interesting Linux tests from this open ARM desktop.

Find out more about the CompuLab Trim-Slice for now at TrimSlice.com. You can also compare your low-end or embedded system to these Trim-Slice results via the Phoronix Test Suite by running phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1201062-BY-TRIMSLICE95. You can also find other Trim-Slice results on OpenBenchmarking.org.
