This is a necessary one. The key challenge will be if they can keep up with the innovation in these products.

Current MIPS-based tablet from the same SoC vendor scores close to 3x higher compared to the numbers in the story and has a retail price of $99 or less. It was also the world's first Ice Scream Sandwich tablet.

People always love benchmarks. It gives justification for paying for an upgrade.

"A working group including engineers from ARM, Dell, Freescsale, Nvidia, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments defined the benchmark and have already done internal tests with it. " Make sense to create this from the company's perspective. At the end of the day, they want something to convince the consumer to upgrade to the hot new device :)

I forgot to mention, that MIPS is also active in this working group. This particular benchmark, although available and useful for consumer evaluations, is probably better in the hands of the platform vendor, JVM developer, and processor vendor - as it's more of a low-level, under-the-hood test. We are currently defining the features of the next gen test, and there are certainly differences of opinion.

An earlier version of this story said the benchmark was open source. That is NOT correct. The app is available to anyone. The source code for the benchmark is only available to EEMBC members and licensees.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
