Actually, I have one arndale board up and running. Over the weekend I
have recompiled our embedded Debian based dist and it is awesome fast. I
have attached an 256GB Samsung 830 Series SSD on the SATA3 port and got
~250MB/s write speed (dd from /dev/zero). The board consumes around 4W
in idle, 6.2W with one core processing and 8W with both cores near 100%
without the SSD. I would say that the overall performance is better than
our 1.6GHz dual core Intel Atom board.
