Yesterday I delivered some interesting results showing Freescale's i.MX6 quad-core ARM SoC outperforming one of the original Intel Atom SOCs, with both devices being from low-powered Linux-friendly CompuLab PCs. While the full review of the i.MX6-based CompuLab Utilite is still being written, here's some more preview benchmarks comparing the quad-core i.MX6 to the Atom Z530 to a NVIDIA Tegra 2 to a low-power Ivy Bridge CPU.

The early benchmarks to share in this article ahead of the full review of the Utilite Computer are of the Atom Z530 based Fit-PC2, the NVIDIA Tegra 2 Trim-Slice, and Core i7 3517UE Intense-PC. For more information on these great low-power Linux PCs, visit CompuLab's web-sites.

For this four-way CompuLab device testing, all devices were running the Phoronix Test Suite and then benchmarked with a variety of computational tests. In the complete review of the Utilite will be more systems compared along with performance-per-Watt results. In this article today are just early preview figures for those curious about these low-power PCs out of Israel or for running your own performance comparisons.

Check out the rest of the results on OpenBenchmarking.org and stay tuned for the full Utilite Ubuntu ARM Linux PC review on Phoronix.
