Antutu Benchmark – Rockchip RK3288 (ARM) vs Intel Atom Z3735F

Most ARM mini PCs run Android, while mini PCs based on Intel Atom Z3735F currently all ship with Windows 8.1, so it makes comparison difficult. But since Linuxium posted triple boot instructions (Ubuntu, Android, Windows 10) for MeegoPad T01, he’s also run Antutu 5.6 on the platform, so we’ve got a comparison point. The Android image used in the Intel platform is Android-x86, and may not have been optimized for Bay Trail yet, so even though the comparison may not be perfect, it could still be interesting to find out the strengths and weaknesses of the Intel processor, against one of the fastest ARM processor found in mini PCs: Rockchip RK3288.

Rockchip_RK3288_vs_Intel_Atom_Z3735FI’ll use the Antutu 5.3 score I got with Open Hour Chameleon as a reference point.

It would have been nice to have data from other benchmarks too, but I could not find results yet. The red results indicate the Intel SoC is slower than the Rockchip one, and the green ones where the Intel SoC outperforms. 3D graphics is where the Intel GPU shows its limitation against the Mali-T764, which according to Antutu is about twice as fast. For some reasons multi-tasking shows a relatively poor result too. Z3735F has significantly better integer performance, but floating point is not as good. But overall performance between the two should not be that noticeable for end users, except possibly for 3D games.

Hi,

I think it would be even more nice to read if you add a column (ARM / Intel) and show for example 36525 / 29851 = 1.22 like http://benchmarksgame.alioth.debian.org/

The ***main*** difference:

– Android-x86 is WELL supported and with very smart developers behind (read Intel help)
– Android for chinese Arm SoC’s is in general very BAD supported, with a chaotic development cycle

So, I guess if the Chinese Arm manufacturers don’t change their approach, sooner or later they will be quite out of business…
Intel is not sleeping here!

I think you should compare Rk3288 to Atom Z3560 quad core 1.83Ghz w/ powerful GPU PowerVR G6430 in Nexus player, Asus fonepad ~ 40K Antutu

You are right. Intel is very well support

so PowerVR G64XX vs ARM Mali-T764 🙂
I would really like to now if Intel do any modification on powervr GPU
As every intel marketing document notice it has build in Intel GPU 🙂

CPU float-point (single thread) 1893 vs 1696
I always hope that intel has best compressor on the market.
As all benchmarks AMD vs intel was on intel side
Some real benchmark(Phoronix Test Suite) will be better

@ I think You (the author) are either Overlooking OR either Ignoring the actual / true characteristics of the Intel BayTrail Atom. + The facts (more than one) that this as any other Benchmark are NOT even close to real indicator of performance, stability OR productivity + The facts (again more than one), that ANY of the popular Benchmarks on Android are 1)paid OR 2)cheating/cheated by Manifactures OR 3)fixed anyway anyhow. I. So ARM SoC, no matter Cortex-A7 / 8 / 9, Can’t Process with EVERY thread WHAT the New BayTrail Atoms can do. Single MINDBLOWING Example for the New… Read more »

@m][sko I assume you mean by “compressor” an “processor”, not file compression or similar… In any case, why would you “always hope” Intel to have the best chips? Competition would be a positive thing in any market, especially when Intel has pretty much dominated the x86 CPU market since the Nehalem (one could argue them being on top since the Core 2, but it had pretty horrid downfalls against AMD64 (IMC)). I sure hope ALL processor architectures would get competitive/equal in all aspects, else it’s nothing but people’s only choice being sponsoring some mammoth monopolistic corporation, that is not a… Read more »

I mean mathematical co-processor
x264 encoder is always faster on Intel instead of AMD. I know it is mostly vector instructions sets but ARM has NEON 🙂

@JotaMG: Samsung (korea), Rockchip (mainland China), Mediatek (Taïwan), both work on opensource support for linux mainline kernel. support for HD3000 gpu for example, by intel devs stoped, before the driver was stable, two years after the GPU was in i7-2600K CPU. Help to debug then come around the globe community. Please stop the white cowboy vs the rest of the globe stance. Most components of Linux system come from around the globe, with lot of chinese/russian/indian/south america/… devs in very fundamentals brics and in all domains (drivers, daemons, interfaces, client applications, etc…). @Dimitar Tomov: Intel atom for industrial purpose is… Read more »

@m][sko Personally did do a while pure asm on NEON… After getting angry at the stooopid monkey (me) when things did not operate as I thought, then after playing around with multiple implementations of NEON, I can say that pretty much ALL I encountered/tried sucked monkey’s b*lls, so not touching that stuff again without something major redesign from the ARM, and of course then would need to wait for some chip mfg to actually produce chips with it… Now back to use generic LLVM for all, not going to do a damn thing with NEON, even Altivec was simpler/faster and… Read more »

@anon I was pretty much happy with speed of NEON (2x faster as I use it only on 2D ), I use arm neon intrices and it is all working just fine with latest version of GCC. Major problem was with bad memory alignment vector instructions expect proper memory alignment for example if your pointer isn’t aligned to 64bit or 128bit (depend on instruction) on ARM application simple crash on intel you will completely lose speed benefit as intel do some magic that completly slow down whole vector instruction. but it is really nice that gcc finally add some macros… Read more »

Is there a decent RK3288-RK3188 benchmark comparison anywhere? ( http://www.cnx-software.com/2014/01/10/rockchip-rk3288-vs-rk3188-performance-comparison/ is a bit sketchy.)

Yeah, nowadays it might be better, i was doing that in GCC 4.7/4.8 era, but of course as handwritten asm, so the biggest problem was between the chair and the keyboard, so after moving things to LLVM 3.5+ I simply gave up on self-made code, and simply compile it.

But the industrial guys hardly use Rockchip or Mediatek ARM chips where you have no idea whatsoever for how long they will be made. THAT is where Texas Instruments, Renesas and so forth really make their money

Z37XX has Intel, Z35XX is PowerVR. Any intel doc I’ve seen was fairly clear about this.

Any idea of the system power draw differences?

gcc’s output always seems to run better on x86 than it does on arm (i.e. x86 seems better at running ‘poorish’ compiler generated code), so these results surprise me. Not sure what that bloke’s problem is with NEON – imho it’s great and makes SSE look like something intel came up with.

Hey there, did you ever tried to do a RK3288 (or RK3368) vs Z8300? I would enjoy seeing the intel evolution.
