The Arndale Board is a dual-core ARMv7 development board built around the Exynos 5 Dual SoC, which features the new ARM Cortex-A15. As shown in yesterday's Samsung Chromebook benchmarks on Linux, the Exynos 5 Dual packs very good performance for being a low-power ARM chip.
Yesterday's benchmarks were very interesting from the ARM Cortex-A15 in the Exynos 5 Dual of the $249 USD Samsung Chromebook. More benchmarks are on the way from the Google netbook/notebook loaded up with Ubuntu Linux. Today, however, Kurt Keville of MIT has shared with me some benchmarks of an Arndale Board he managed to get his hands on.
The Arndale Board project information is detailed at ArndaleBoard.org. The Exynos 5 Dual is a dual-core Cortex-A15 running at 1.7GHz, has 1GB of DDR3 memory, various on-board sensors, SATA1/SATA2/SATA3 storage connectivity, USB 3.0 support, and ARM Malit T-604 graphics.
Embedded below are some of the benchmark results comparing the Cortex-A15 Arndale Board running Linaro 12.10 compared to the Samsung Chromebook results from yesterday and the other reference ARM/x86 Linux performance figures. More details are on OpenBenchmarking.org.
