So, seems the signal thread performance of A57 core will be close to that of Intel Yonah core (Core microarchitecture), and a bit lower than that of Merom core (Core 2 microarchitecture), if SpecInt2000 can be taken linearly, which was designed to. SpecInt2000 scores (http://www.spec.org/cpu2000/results/cint2000.html): Core Duo T2600@2.17G = 1796 Core 2 Duo T7400@2.17G = 2284 They were released in 2006 (Jan and Aug?), and TDPs are 31W and 34W respectively.

@vdara: Thanks for the comparisons. If ARM is matching even a former generation Intel Core it must be far exceeding Atom as it suggests in its own rough performance chrat, yes?

Rick, Did they go into the bus architecture. Does it use a full AXI bus? If yes, there is a huge catalog of mature IP that can be put with the cores. If not, well, maybe in version 2. Also, I have to ask the annoying question, what sort of PMIC will we need to run the thing?

I'm not sure if I can answer your question, but the last two foils (8 and 9) show SoCs using different versions of ARM's CoreLink interconnects to link clusters of 4 cores up to 4 clusters (16 cores)

Wow, you are comparing this crap to almost 7 year old CPU from Intel?

Based on the VIA report, the SpecInt2000 score of Atom D525 is 725@1.83G, http://www.via.com.tw/en/downloads/whitepapers/processors/NanoX2_whitepaper_201107.pdf. So, yes, A15 core is able to outperform Atom Pineview core by a nice 40%+ margin. But this performance gain comes with the cost of power. Anand found that, under heavy load, Exynos 5 Dual (A15 core) consumes ~4W additional power over idle, while Atom N570 (similar Pineview core) consumes 2.6W more, http://www.anandtech.com/show/6422/samsung-chromebook-xe303-review-testing-arms-cortex-a15/7. Atom2 (Silvermont) is supposed to be available in 2013. It will be very interesting to see how does it compare with A15/A57.

Wow, intel must have their co-ops posting! I guess we are all wrong - we should shut up and buy intel.

1250 SPECINT is for a single core Cortex-A57. It's very unlikely you will ever see single-core Cortex-A57 in silicon. CCN-504 will enable 16-core systems. You are comparing single core Cortex-A57 vs dual core Intel. A fairer comparison of what you will see in silicon is 16-core Cortex-A57 vs dual or quad-core Intel. Or compare dual vs dual if you like. But comparing single Cortex-A57 to dual Intel is a silly and pointless comparison.

specint/fp is for single thread performance.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
