Am I mistaken or what??? The benchmark results do not show Intel outperforming the ARMs. It appears only marginally better than the Exynos one and it underperforms when compared to the others (CPU, 2D, 3D and Performance Index... forget about the RAM access, which does not mean much).
DELIBERATELY USING CAPITAL TO DRAW THE ATTENTION OF
PETER CLARKE :
Considering the significance of these test results and the controversy it has raised ( as seen from the Comments here ) will it be possible for you ask ABI Research to provide additional technical details on (a) the Benchmark programs ( were they industry standard ? ), test procedures for measuring current nto CPU etc.
Yes it is a well-known fact that browsers and JIT compilers vary a lot in performance, even between versions.
Worse, it's relatively easy to use compiler tricks to make tiny JIT benchmarks (such as SunSpider) appear much faster than they really are.
So if you want to compare actual performance then these micro benchmarks don't provide a good estimate - not for native performance and not for JIT compiled code.
