Julian: we appreciate these benchmarks are far from comprehensive. However, if wish to claim that the Omega is faster at some tasks, we would really appreciate being pointed at some tests/numbers that show how and when.

monkey: Yes, I suppose. My FPGA knowledge is 5 years out of date. My feeling is that such a solution might be rather slow - the diference between ARM interger and FP instructions behaviour is sufficiently large that an "FPTwister" solution would be way out of the question. There are other FPGA solutions too - but I think it would simply be far better to use a proper FP ARM chip.

Nor do I do think further propogating these benchmarks "privately" is helping anyone. Let's get them out in the open
