Ubuntu 15.04 On The Tegra X1 Yields Even Better Results, More Benchmarks

NVIDIA --
Earlier this week I posted some initial benchmark figures for the NVIDIA Tegra X1 on Ubuntu Linux. Those results showed much promise for this 64-bit ARM big.LITTLE SoC that also bears a Maxwell GPU, but that wasn't tested for the initial comparison. Here are a few more benchmark results from this Tegra X1, including an Ubuntu 15.04 installation to show the difference against the Tegra X1 on Ubuntu 14.10.

If you didn't already see the earlier results, first go read NVIDIA's Tegra X1 Delivers Stunning Performance On Ubuntu Linux for the background information and the initial results. In this article is just some complementary data performed via the Phoronix Test Suite and uploaded to OpenBenchmarking.org.


The Tegra X1 Ubuntu installations were on a NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV.

First up are some runs comparing the previous Ubuntu 14.10-based results to that of the SHIELD TV with Ubuntu 15.04... Generally the performance is much faster than the 14.10 installation. Ubuntu 15.04 on the SHIELD TV was using GCC 4.9.2 and the Linux 3.10 kernel.

You can dig through those limited Ubuntu 15.04 results on the SHIELD TV at 1507280-BE-1507289BE72 on OpenBenchmarking.org.


The other result file I have to share today is 1507286-BE-NVIDIATEG09. That result file has a number of standalone results for the Tegra X1. This is primarily useful if you want to run your own comparison to see how your own x86/ARM Linux systems compare in CPU performance to this SHIELD TV modified with Ubuntu. To see how the comparison is to the 14.10 results, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1507286-BE-NVIDIATEG09.

Once I get my hands on a Tegra X1 system aside from these remotely done SHIELD TV benchmarks, I hope to run some graphics tests of the GM20B Maxwell GPU along with some power efficiency numbers, etc.
