    Phoronix: Tests Continue From The 5-Watt Ubuntu ARM Server

    After yesterday publishing the first extensive benchmark results for the Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000 ARM Servers in the form of the 1.1GHz and 1.4GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 nodes running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Ubuntu 12.10, here are more benchmarks to share today from the "5-Watt ARM Server" on Linux...

    So by "5 watts"

    They really mean "8 watts" But who's counting on the fact that they overshoot their stated power levels by 60%.

      it's a broad statement to be interpreted as you can build a 5 watt server if you want, but here we've got more powerful chips to get real work done on.

      Also, can we please have reference points outside of ARM? Performance versus x86 solutions would be nice, just for my brain to wrap around.

        Compare with Atom?

        Hi There,

        Thank you for your testing.

        Could you please add on a comparison with an Intel Atom for us?

        In reality, the cost difference between 8 watts and 30 isn't significant for most customers. The cost difference of shifting to a different architecture is.
