For those curious about the performance out of the sub-$100 USD "Chinese netbooks" using the low-priced Wondermedia SoCs, here are some benchmarks.

A Phoronix reader has shared with us some of his performance figures for his Wondermedia WM8880 netbook. He wrote in, "
I benchmarked today my Wondermedia WM8880-based chinese netbook, and since we almost never see results of this SOC, I think that it could be interesting for the readers! These chinese netbooks are available at +-90$usd on ebay by typing 'android netbook'. I found on the linux-on-aakash project page a Ubuntu 14.04 sd card image, and it makes a great little linux computer."

The Wondermedia WM8880 is a dual-core 1.4GHz part using Cortex-A9 and a Mali 400MP2 for graphics.

For the benchmark results he pitted them against my recent 8-Way ARM Linux Board Comparsion.

To see these Wondermedia SoC performance results in a ~$90 netbook, head on over to this result file.
