Samsung Chromebook performance tests under Ubuntu 13.04

    The new Chromebook , priced at $ 249, built on Samsung's Exynos 5 Dual processor, an ARM Cortex-A15 dual-core chip, shows very good performance. On board an 11-inch laptop, 2 gigabytes of RAM and 16 GB SSD. The performance of the new Cortex-A15 architecture is 40% higher than the Cortex-A9 at the same clock speed. In addition, new processors can work with terabytes of memory and support Xen / KVM virtualization.

    Test results show that the new Chromebook in many respects surpasses not only the Calxeda ARM server on the quad-core processor of the previous generation A9, but also the dual-core Intel Atom D525, which supports Hyperthreading technology.
