Introduction

Content is no longer maintained and is being kept for reference only!

This page provides comparison among various TI processors running TI's Android-DevKit. Data published here is for the latest version of released Android-DevKit. Items yet to be measured are marked "TBD" and those that are not applicable to a particular platform are marked "N/A".

Platform Benchmarks

This is a collection of benchmarks comparing mainly CPU speed and other data transfer operations. In below tests, AM3730@1GHz, BeagleXM@1GHz, and AM3517@600MHz.

RowboPerf: ARM

See RowboPERF User Guide for more information about these metrics. The RowboPerf application calls native executables compiled with Android's NDK to perform these tests.

Boot Time

Numbers shown here measure the time from start of loading the kernel image to appearance of Android's Home Screen. These measurements are done using the default (pre-built) images provided with the DevKit. Please note that the very first time you boot your device, the boot time will be significantly higher.

File Storage Performance

These tests were performed using the StorageIO application provided in RoboPerf. The application measures the write and read speed of different storage devices using several block sizes. For these tests the file size chosen was 100 MBytes. In order for the application to run the storage device chosen for the test must be mounted in the Android file system and a have read and write access. All the tests were perform on devices with a vfat file system.

ADB

Measure Android Debug Bridge (ADB) throughput between Host PC and Android device by pushing and pulling a 20MB file with random content 10 times. TX and RX numbers are from the Host PC point of view, so TX is measured by doing "adb push" on the Host PC.

MultiMedia Performance

Tests to measure video, audio, image and speech processing performance.

Video Display

To measure Video decode and display performance, the Big Buck Bunny clip was used. The clip has the following video and audio streams
Stream #0.0(und): Video: mpeg4, yuv420p, 352x288 [PAR 48:11 DAR 16:3], 30 tbr, 30 tbn, 30 tbc
Stream #0.1(und): Audio: aac, 48000 Hz, stereo, s16
DDR2 memory was set to 256M in the boot parameters (Default value)

For Android on DM37x EVM, which has multimedia DSP acceleration enabled, the sintel-1280-stereo.mp4 clip was used. The clip has the following video and audio streams. The ARM load (observed with 'top' command) is about 4~8% while playing the clip.
Video: AVC High@L3.1, CABAC, 5 ReFrames, 1,616 Kbps, 1280x544, 24.000 fps, yuv420p
