The ARM Cortex-A9 Can Beat Out The Intel Atom

When it came to running the compress-lzma test profile, the dual-core Cortex-A9 ORIGEN had a slight advantage over the dual-core Intel Atom N450, while the single-core Cortex-A8 had lost. Again, all three processors were running at 1.0GHz.

When running the dcraw imaging program, the x32 binary on the N450 was slightly faster than the ARMv9 A9 while the x86_64 binary on the Samsung netbook was about the same speed as the dual-core ARM ORIGEN.

The ARM ORIGEN board easily blew past the Intel Atom competition for the computationally-intense Himeno benchmark

For the N-Queens test, even the Cortex-A8 with its lone core was faster than the Intel Atom at the same clock speed.
