I thought linpack was supposed to measure raw processor speed, which is capped? So why does N1 bench so much better than a droid if both are at 1ghz? It is because of intermediaries between the raw unprocessed data and the processor? By intermediaries, I mean stuff like JIT. So is the N1 just better engineered to utilize the 1ghz than the droid?
This isn't a bragging rights question, I'm just curious why it works the way it does.
