Interesting ... btw didn't you find a Bay Trail GB3 64-bit benchmark previously ? Might help AE add some perspective to his current slanted view..
I suggest Ashraf uses his contacts and borrows someone's Spec2000 copy and runs his own tests with the same compiler/OS to neutralize that factor. Mobile manufacturers themselves like ARM, Nvidia, Intel have used this benchmark suite themselves and Nvidia even had a graphic showing how relevant the subtests were to mobile functions. The subtests also run short enough for throttling not to be a major issue unlike Spec2006. Until then Geekbench/Antutu marks while interesting datapoints as are all tests really, even SuperPi, as they are obviously showing some facet of performance should come with a big health warning as to their general applicability.
It was a strategic mistake by Poole in Geekbench3 to mix up AES benchmarks with Integer as the former can be accelerated to varying degrees by special instructions which some processors have and some don't meaning comparing Integer Total scores is misleading as was the Floating Point in Geekbench 2 after his x86 denorm bug was exposed. If you insist on using Geekbench micro-benchmarks as an indicator of pure cpu performance then Geekbench 2 Integer and Geekbench 3 Floating Point are the ones to use as they don't have known structural flaws in them.
Wow you compounded this idiocy by making it into a misleading article !
Congratulations, with this and all the other stuff you have written lately you have descended into the general inaccurate amateurish level of writing associated with SA and MF. Well done, I did not think such a descent after such a promising start was possible but you managed it.
More important than that though I want to know which one of you is Statler and which one is Waldorf ? ;-)
'However, doing 32-bit to 32-bit is unfair'
Don't be absurd, it's a lot fairer than comparing 32-bit for one processor and comparing it to 64-bit for another without telling anyone especially when the latter benefits enormously from it. Some might even call this purposeful disingenuity.
'as 32-bit MEF has AES encryption in hardware while only in 64-bit mode is this exposed for the ARM chip. '
That just shows you how non-generic and non general purpose Geekbench really is in pronouncing general processor performance. Perhaps you should finally grow up and move on from using this and that other kiddie's benchmark, Antutu, as your performance estimator bible.
'Apple's Cyclone is a beast.'
More like a paper tiger which gets exposed by lowly dual-issue Silvermont in so many benchmarks. Can you imagine what Haswell would do to it if it ever challenged it ? ARM chips tend to have too many glass jaws for my liking, always have and probably always will.
'So says Mr. Attacking $4. Where do you get the balls to talk shlt to anyone? Look at your predictions'
Yes let's look at them

Congratulations to Marsavian
He called it. $2 by year end. Wwwwoooooohoooooooo!!!
marsavian • Dec 12, 2013
It's going to be $3-$4 by year end now. Historically there is very little resistance between $2.3 and $3.
Date Open High Low Close Volume

So 9 days after making that $3-4 call when the stock hit $2 the stock hit $3.3. A month later it hit $3.9-4.0. I correctly predicted the price of this stock weeks, months even years in advance because I have posts on the IMSC board saying it would hit these 2009-2010 values again when all you idiots were telling me to sell on a spike to 90c !
'For what it's worth, my prediction of 2.02 EOW may be wrong, just like most of yours have been. '
No, ALL your predictions have been wrong (under 2, under 1, under 2, under 1 repeat ad-nauseum) whereas most of mine have invariably been right either on the timescale I said or soon after.
' you've been there bashing for months under a different alias'
No because if I had you would know about it because I would do a far better job than your current lot. Posithinki asked me before not to so I have purposely stayed away even if idiots like you do tempt me. I feel sorry for most there misled by pumpers like u
'I'm going to go out on a limb here and say 2.02 at 4pm Fri based on my TA. '
Your limb is about to be cut off with yet another incredibly wrong prediction ! ;-).
You have already lost your money, your previous shorts at 70c, $1.20, $2, $2.5 etc ;-)
Pretending to be a distressed long has been your pathetic IMO for years now and it did not fool anyone then either.
Support is also exactly where I said it would be after earnings, 2.7-3.0 and the march beyond 3.0 begins March-April.

Just conjecture as he does not have to report them now since he was fired but it seems the most likely explanation for the selling volume after the case dismissal event. In 2011 after his last purchase he had 350K shares

You continue to be the clueless clown we all know you for if you think astcbuy is virtualwin. astcbuy is a dedicated IMSC short who uses that nick just to wind you guys up and you fall for it every time like the dumb-dumbs you are. Well looks like the ex-CFO dumped his 300+K shares and the stock is still at the same support line it has been since earnings. You can forget your $2 by friday, it's just not going to happen just like all the rest of your useless predictions !
p.s. IMSC still circling the drain at 75c I see. Keep expecting to 'soar' in June LOL you clueless clown !! Reality is it will be in the 60-70c range then.
Apparently it's not going to end well for you Shorty :)
Texas Court of Appeals Dismisses Lawsuit by Former CFO
AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ASTROTECH CORPORATION, (ASTC), a leading provider of commercial space services, today announced that the Texas Court of Appeals, Third District, has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a former employee against the company's CEO and the members of its Board of Directors.
"We are pleased by the decision of the Texas Court of Appeals dismissing a lawsuit filed by a former employee," stated Astrotech Chairman and CEO, Thomas B. Pickens, III. "Our directors felt this claim was improper from the outset. Astrotech has never wavered on its commitment to introduce innovative products into strong growth industry sectors to build value for our shareholders."
August 7, 2013, the trial court Judge questioned the plaintiff's legal standing and ruled that the lawsuit failed to meet certain statutory requirements, rendering the suit deficient, but nevertheless permitted him to engage in "targeted discovery." Astrotech argued that once the Court concluded that the lawsuit was deficient, the only remedy was to dismiss the suit and not permit discovery. The Texas Court of Appeals agreed with Astrotech's position and found that the lower court should have dismissed the case period.
The Saltwell in Medfield/CloverTrail(+) had no trouble competing against the dual-core Kraits it came across and Krait is not an all-round strong core, it can be strong but it can also be weak which is subjectively what I thought of it when using one briefly, an inconsistent performer. A two-issue x86 (Atom/Kabini) can also generally match a three-issue Risc.
Performs better in cpu/gpu than that other 64-bit phone dual-core, Apple A7 ;-). OEMs may have their own personal reasons for not wanting to use Intel mobile chips but there is no doubt Intel engineers have delivered a good phone chip fit for purpose.
