Can you download and run some sort of benchmark test on it, something that can be ran on a normal Slackware box? All the benchmarks I see for the ODROID seem to be comparing to the Pi, but I want to compare to my current box.

Here we go

Out of curiosity I have run it on my Trimslice, upon which most of Slackware ARM's packages are built:

Looking at specs I see NVIDIA Tegra 2 @ 1 GHz CPU with 1 GB DDR2-667 RAM
If I take something like your 25.69 integer and multiply by 1.7 (since the U3 is a 1.7GHz CPU) gives 43.6 which is a little slower than my old lappy. It may not scale linearly like that but its a rough estimate.

I was going to calculate for all the #'s but I'm on a work computer and MSExcel is in the middle of a crash.

But apart from old nutty me who runs Slackware ARM on their ARM based Netbooks/Tablets and uses them as portable desktop replacement ?
I'd be curious to know if I'm in good company.
I've got Slackware ARM running on a beaglebone black with a 7" touchscreen which has made me even more keen to have Slackware running on my Nexus 7 with it's little bluetooth keyboard. An Arm7 hard float version would be very nice.

The Tegra 2 is dual core the Exynos4412 is a quad core ... so to get a rough idea you should multiply by about 1.7x2=3.4

Thereat least another two that I know of that may not be registered in this forum ... make a total of 5 of us so far: not many but better then being alone

I too want a tablet some day. I'm thinking these new Windows 8 tablets should be able to do it hardware wise if I could just buy one without windows.

I was curious to see if the AC100, that has the same SOC as the trimslice, actually had similar results and in deed it does (Stuart you proababbly asked me for this a long time ago: better late then never) :
