AW:'So the ARM 8s are no faster than the X-Scale?': concerning basic processing power, I'd imagine they're considerably faster - for a start, ARM quote '600Mhz to over 1Ghz' and 'up to 2000 DMIPS' (presumably for the higher speed range) i.e. 2 DMIPS per cycle which would be double the X-Scale value, and presumably internal bus speeds and bandwidth are greater. I think Phlamethrower was probably referring to the fact that the port doesn't yet exploit the other hardware features. But I'm just an interested amateur; perhaps someone more knowledgeable would care to enlighten us?
