zynq arm vs freescale power pc comparison

Hi,

 

Is there any performance comparison results between zynq arm platform and Freescale Power PC processor platforms (such as P2020, MPC8641D,.. etc) ?

 

Best Regards,

Mustafa

Zynq is arm (rich dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 based ) processor based SOC chip. So you can compare freescale power pc & ARM processor main features and can apply here for some extent.

 

Refer Zynq documents in the following link http://www.xilinx.com/products/silicon-devices/soc/zynq-7000.html for more details

You are right, I have already made the comparison by using the given specifications for Zynq and Power PCs.

 

As a result, the Freescale processors can be able to process approximately 3000 MDIMPS per core, but the ARM in the Zynq can proceess 2000 MDIMPS per core. 

 

I am expecting that Zynq platfoms can compensate the above core processing degradation compare to Power PC by enabling the users more flexible and programmable bus interconnect and more bandwidth of data transfer architecture.

 

For this reason, I opened this discussion.

 

Has Xilinx performed a comparision of these two architectures for a well-defined algorithm ? 

 

Best Regards,

Mustafa
