    > the Cortex-A9 is the most impressive variant so far.

    Yes, so far Cortex-A9 leads the bunch. Just for fun I compiled a small list* of DMIPS per MHz and core figures for various recent and future cores implementing ARM ISA:

    ARM Cortex-A8: 2.0
    Qualcomm Scorpion: 2.1
    Marvell Sheeva PJ4: 2.4
    ARM Cortex-A9: 2.5
    Qualcomm Krait: 3.0...3.5 (estimated)
    ARM Cortex-A15: 3.5 (estimated)

    * Edit: updated list there

    There are also other Cortex-A9 boards, for instance the Snowball (available end of Q2/2011 starting at 225 USD):
