In PPC comparison and real use (e.g. Blender) its about G4 1.5Ghz when both cores are used.
"112s blender 2.62 PA6T 1.8Ghz Dualcore (LinuxMint)
113s blender 2.62 G4 1.8Ghz DualCPU !"
So PA6T is 2x faster than single G4.
@PA6T vs Pi performance
Pi performs like ~300Mhz Pentium2.
PA6T performs like 1.8Ghz Pentium2 per core. (very roughly)
(the problem beside x1000 price is that so far AOS4 utilizes very little of the performance of x1000 system. It uses less than 50% of CPU power and none of the 3D power or video acceleration.)
Now when 4...24 core PPC dev boards can be bought below eur2000, I think Cyrus should also be priced closer to those.
Completely agree. In modern day terms its about Sempron/Celeron performance. Not so bad either, but downside is OS4 usess very little of it. Especially that PA Semi strenghts aren`t in CPU Power but in fast memory access. a bit better FPU performance and quite modern features for the time CPU was released.
(Six execution units including a double precision FPU and Altivec unit
Hypervisor and virtualization support, SGMII, Offload engine for cryptography, RAID, TCP)
Surely, as name suggests its more power efficient than power in today terms.
