I have converted my Classic Benchmarks to run on the Linux based Raspberry Pi. These are Whetstone, Dhrystone, Linpack and Livermore Loops. The benchmark source code was also compiled and on a PC running Linux to confirm compatibility. Executable files and source codes can be downloaded by the following. This can be unzipped on the Pi and programs run from a Terminal command.


For details and example results on ARM and Intel processors see.

Speeds from the ARM A6 are not as fast as those from ARM Cortex-A9 on recent Android tablets but, as we know,  the Pi is usable as a proper desktop computer running Linux.

The Livermore Loops benchmark was used to accept the first supercomputer. So the main bragging rights are:

In 1978, the Cray 1 supercomputer cost $7 Million, weighed 10,500 pounds and had a 115 kilowatt power supply. It was, by far, the fastest computer in the world. The Raspberry Pi costs around $70 (CPU board, case, power supply, SD card), weighs a few ounces, uses a 5 watt power supply and is more than 4.5 times faster than the Cray 1.

My bragging rights are that I developed and ran benchmarks, including Whetstones, on Serial 1 Cray 1.

I just read a little bit of http://www.softwarep...tation_1964.pdf and it made me want to shoot myself.
