Calxeda has put out its first benchmark of their forthcoming Calxeda ARM Server. The company is claiming a 15x performance-per-Watt advantage over a recent Intel Xeon CPU.

Right now there's just a lone benchmark result published: Apache. This benchmark is also for just a single 5-Watt Calxeda ARM server rather than one of their 192-core servers or any other crazy configuration.

The single Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000 is operating at 1.1GHz with 4GB of low-power DDR3-1066MHz memory, Gigabit Ethernet, and is attached to a 250GB SATA HDD. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS was running on the hardware.

Calxeda says the average power consumption was 5.26 Watts and for Apache delivered a 15x advantage over an Intel Xeon E3-1240 that had an average power consumption of 102 Watts.

The result and additional information was published to ARMServers.com.
