The program [Coremark], published by the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC), is only designed to test the core functions of a processor. According to CoreMark.org: "It is encouraging to see the industry, as well as academia, adapting to a new standard so quickly, but let us not forget – CoreMark only targets core operations. EEMBC’s full-featured application benchmarks are much better suited for testing a processor’s capability in a real application. Furthermore, processors are becoming increasingly complex and one core-based benchmark is insufficient for a comprehensive analysis.
This article essentially confirmed what what most of the members commented in last weeks article when nvidia first demoed this "next gen "kal-el" mobile processor"... goes to show that companies like to play us a fool, well at least the general public!
Hit the nail on the head. So unnecessary to compare your latest and greatest by inflating numbers when you can easily run on the platform of "its way way better than our last product". C'mon now green!

nationalist furver are beginning not to work. A new consciousness is
developing which sees the earth as a single organism and recognizes that
an organism at war with itself is doomed"- Carl Sagan
This is so pathetic on Nvidia's part. I don't mind too much descriptions that their products are the best but lying about performance? So sad.
coolice:companies like to play us a fool
And they never seem to learn that they usually get caught with their pants down when they try this kind of BS.
Case in point: Sony and their infamous root-kit embedded onto millions of their Music CD's.
The fact is that there's a whole lot of very smart, connected people out there that are looking hard at what these companies are doing. Getting away with 'slight-of-hand' shenanigans is not an option these days.
Here's a 1956 Volvo that looks almost new.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Wow they just lost a lot of respect in the tech community. Did they do this just to take a pot shot at Intel? Or were they trying to say that they can bring desktop class power to SOC devices? Either way they blew it.

Eh. This happens mostly every day. I don't blame them, they wanted to make their processor more powerful then it was.
While it is unnecessary and laughable that they would do this, they haven't lost me as a customer just yet. They have to do something much worse in order to lose me.
