RB vs X86

Mon Oct 12, 2009 8:48 pm

Is there anywhere you can find a performance comparison of a RB based system to a X86 system with say a 700Mhz processor with 512Mb of ram and CF as HDD. Not concerned about power4 consumption. Other that the RB1000, what is second most powerful RB that can be used as main router, not needing wireless on it?

Thanks for the response. I will check the specs of the RB450G. Any comparison withs a X86 system anywhere?

While I don't think there's a way to make a true apples-to-apples comparison, I was able to dig up this chart:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instructio ... per_second

From there, its a matter of looking of the dhrystone mips rating of a given processor and making a comparison.

The MIPS line of processors tend to run about 1.6 D-MIPS per Mhz clock. I remember looking up ratings for other processors but don't have those handy.

*http://www.mips.com/products/processors ... bit-cores/

Again, it's not apples-to-apples since certain architectures lean toward certain types of calculations but it can at least give you a baseline to work with.
