[PythonCE] XScale vs ARM
Tue, 5 Nov 2002 17:21:06 -0700
Well, I installed the python distribution on a Toshiba e740 (400Mhz
XScale), and ran the same pystone tests that I ran on an Amigo (206Mhz
StrongARM). Both units have 32MB of RAM and python was running
completely from a compact flash card.
The Amigo score 217 pystone and executed in 46 seconds. The toshiba
scored 147 pystone and executed in 71 seconds. These are averages,
although the Amigo was fairly consistent. More so than the e740.
Next I'll install python without the CF card and see if that
significantly influences it. The code was:
from test import pystone
if sys.platform != 'win32' and __name__=='__main__':
sys.stderr = file('/Storage Card/Test/stderr.txt', 'w', 0)
sys.stdout = file('/Storage Card/Test/stoneage.txt', 'w', 0)
print "Seconds: %s, Pystones: %s" % pystone.pystones()
