To no real surprise, the Jetson boards were at the bottom of the spectrum considering their much higher price and with these tests not taking advantage of the GPU.

In looking at the meta performance per Watt for the tests run, the Raspberry Pi Zero at $5 was leading followed by the Orange Pi PC as the $25 board followed by the ODROID C1+ at $45. In fourth was the popular Raspberry Pi 2 followed by the Orange Pi Plus.

Once again, as some follow-up tests I'm still working on some ARM graphics benchmarks as well as some ARMv7 compiler tuning benchmarks and other potential articles based upon feedback.
