An anonymous reader writes: Presenting at the IEEE High Performance Extreme Computing conference, a researcher from the University of Tennessee presented that the iPad 2 is as fast as the original Cray-2 super computer. Performance improvements were made to the iPad 2 LINPACK software by writing Python for generating and testing various Assembly routines. The researcher also found that the ARM Cortex-A9 easily beats the NVIDIA/AMD GPUs and latest Intel/AMD workstation CPUs in performance-per-Watt efficiency.
