A benchmark score has been released by Android Police over the new Android 2.2 OS or what we known as the Android Froyo OS for smartphone. It appeared after the test done by the folks at Android police has returned an amazing score and speed record when compared to the earlier version of Android 2.1. According to the result, Android 2.2 Froyo is running 450% faster than Android 2.1 using LINPACK benchmarking measurement and they are using Google Nexus One as the guinea pig.
The LINPACK Benchmarks are a measure of a system’s floating point computing power. Introduced by Jack Dongarra, they measure how fast a computer solves a dense N by N system of linear equations Ax = b, which is a common task in engineering. The solution is obtained by Gaussian elimination with partial pivoting, with 2/3*N3 + 2*N2 floating point operations. The result is reported in Millions of FLoating-point Operations Per Second (MFLOP/s, sometimes simply called FLOPS).
