Submission + - Intel Cherry Picking And Sensationalising Benchmarks; ARM still leads

Reynolds953 writes: In an EE Times blog http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=36&doc_id=1318857, the author laments "Unfortunately, we live in a world where sensationalism rules and headlines seldom tell the entire story or even the truth. In any case, the results of one [pro Intel] benchmark, especially one that seems to contradict other benchmarks, seem more suspicious than conclusive." He concludes that "the leading ARM-based processors still have a performance lead over the latest Intel processor (a recent review of the Samsung Galaxy 3 10.1 by GSMArena http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_tab_3_101-review-948.php came to the same conclusion); all benchmarks should be questioned and none used exclusively; and recent headlines were more sensational than truthful.
