Samsung's A15 Chromebook Loaded With Ubuntu Is Crazy Fast

The Exynos 5 Dual performance in the $249 Chromebook is even much faster than what I had anticipated...

More Samsung Chromebook benchmarks from Ubuntu Linux are forthcoming once I've completed my own tests -- including examining the power consumption, compiler optimizations, etc -- but so far this $249 laptop is looking very attractive. The Samsung Exynos 5 Dual SoC is mighty competitive as shown by these initial benchmarks compared to a Calxeda quad-core Cortex-A9 SoC, the TI OMAP4460 dual-core A9 1.2GHz SoC, and an Intel Atom D525 1.8GHz dual-core CPU plus Hyper Threading. For those looking to get into ARM Linux development, the Samsung Chromebook looks like it will prove to be a great product and I look forward to more ARM Cortex-A15 products.

Using the cross-platform open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking framework, you can compare your own x86/ARM system to these Cortex-A15, A9, and x86 performance results in a side-by-side and fully-automated/reproducible manner by simply executing phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1211119-SU-1210247RA91.
