I know they differ greatly but there must be certain specific benchmarks that can be used to compare one aspect of both?


For example, making the CPUs render code, or process a large image.


I am wondering, because I'm curious how a modern mobile CPU compares to PC CPUs.


As I said, I know they can't directly be compared but the two examples I gave above are a valid way to test certain parts I think.


For example, I wonder what the 2.5 GHz quad-core Krait 400 CPU in certain Galaxy S5 variants compares in the tasks above to which PC CPU. A 1999 Pentium III 800? A 2006 Athlon 64 X2 4000+? A 2013 Core i5-4430?


You get the idea :p
