MIPS
2015-08-07:

In an internal developer discussion, mostly between Olivier Landemarre, Roger Burrows and Markus Fröschle, the ACP developers recently debated how Freescale came up with a speed of 401 MIPS for the 266 MHz Coldfire processor. After speculating about MIPS, VAX and Dhrystones the developers agree only that they do not agree. Nonetheless, there is some fascinating material for end users.

In the course of this discussion the Dhrystone 2.1 benchmark was recompiled using GCC 4.6.4. We cannot keep the test results from you as, in spite of everything, they give a good comparison of the FireBee with EmuTOS (100% ColdFire native), FireTOS with cf68klib, Aranym (without JIT), an original Atari Falcon and TT, as well as a CT60. We know you tech nerds appreciate such a thing!

Have a nice summer!

1 DMIPS = 1757 dhrystones/s (at least in most comparison tables). :-)
