    Motorola Atom Razr I beats ARM dual-core Razr M in battery

    life and Performance. Nearly Identical Phones so the comparison is as close as one can get.
    32nm 5 year old ATOM beats latest Dual Core SnapDragon S4 in battery life and Performance.

    ARM cannot compete in the Windows world (too slow), and is losing out in Power to ATOM.
    CES should be interesting.

    • A multi-core benchmark is not the same as a multi-threaded benchmark. In real world performance tests (engadgetDOTcom and others), Medfeld beats Snapdragon. A 32nm 5 year old ATOM, beating a 28nm Snapdragon in battery life and performance.

      ARM is SLOW, cannot run Windows well. Its done.

      I know the difference between multi-core and multi-thread:) Geekbench spawns the correct number of threads for the Atom cores. See for yourself:


      and search on Z2480 .

      As for benchmarks, we now have a variety of tests:

      Java: Snapdragon wins
      Javascript: Medfield wins
      Native: Snapdragon wins
      GPU: Snapdragon wins
      Suites (such as Quadrant, Vellamo, AnTuTu) : Snapdragon wins

      As engadget put it:

      "Expect the greatest screen or the fastest performance and you're likely to be a little disappointed".

      As for windows, I agree with your view that ARM is dead, but not due to performance. Clovertrail is on Geekbench, search for Z2760 and compare it with the ARM solutions in tablets.
