ODROID-XU's ARM big.LITTLE A7 + A15 Octa-Core
Written by Michael Larabel in Processors on 24 October 2013. Page 3 of 3. 19 Comments

The ODROID-XU is about three times faster than the PandaBoard ES.

I was impressed with the Samsung Chromebook with the Exynos 5 Dual when dual-core Cortex-A15 SoCs were in style, but now we have quad-core Cortex-A15s and with big.LITTLE there are quad-core A15s paired with quad-core A7s. The ODROID-XU development board with the Exynos 5 Octa retails for just $169 USD, which puts it at an incredible value for Linux developers interested in a high-performance ARMv7 development board.

Additional ODROID-XU Exynos 5 Octa Ubuntu Linux benchmarks are forthcoming while other test requests can be sent to @MichaelLarabel on Twitter.
