The comparison was against the two types of processors in the Samsung S4, one of the most recently introduced phones based on ARM processors and one of the fastest ARM based units on the market. I don't know why you would not consider that a fair comparison?

Pretty significant results from the Intel camp. I am not pro or against Intel, but this will have some impact on the naysayers out there. Unless ARM or Qualcomm et. all can make some really fast improvements in power consumption versus processor power, they could take some big hits in sales. I would be wary of my Qualcomm stock holdings.

Looks like Intel-paid marketing. Atom has lower CPU performance than the old Cortex-A9, and is far surpassed by Cortex-A15. Yet in this particular test Atom magically beats A15?

How is this not an ARM-paid comment?

Whether it is fair depends on how the comparison was done. Could you download the benchmark source code, compile it yourself and reproduce the results? That is the question.

I have to agree @rajgarg on @wilcon1's comments.

Frankly speaking I don't believe to this Intel paid benchmark!

Because I can show independent benchmarks between S4 and K900 that prove my point: http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/compare/1979365/1970335 Also if you understand microarchitectures then you'd be very very sceptical of any claims that a 2-way in-order CPU outperforms a 3-way out-of-order one, especially when it is 2 vs 4 cores as well...

Just curious how much the prices are different between these as well...because these application processors are mostly for smartphone or tablet.

@wilco1, how abt this benchmark, http://www.androidauthority.com/galaxy-s4-vs-ideaphone-k900-benchmark-tests-183596/ Just curious to find out what is the golden benchmarking standard ?
