Ian Douglas has run some benchmarks on his Froyo-powered Nexus One, and it’s scoring almost 5 times better.
To be a bit more specific, an Eclair-powered Nexus One usually scores around 6-7 MFLOPS in Linpack benchmarks, but this shiny new Froyo build delivers a blistering 38-40 MFLOPS.
The magic comes from the spankin’ new JIT compiler included in the Froyo build.
Now, as I said before, these are just benchmark results, so real-world performance will differ.
Android And Me point out that Android apps will probably have to be tweaked to take full advantage of the new compiler, so it could be a few months after release before Android users really start seeing a difference.
But, man, I’m excited.
Yesterday, a video showing off Flash 10.1 on a Froyo-powered Nexus One emerged. This bump in speed could explain how it was able to run so smoothly.
So, here’s to hoping that 2.2 makes it to my upgrade-shy HTC Hero.*
*yes, I have a European HTC Hero, and not a Sprint one, but I’m still plagued by the same upgrade-frustration…
